Hiring in groups of 3

Thinking aloud here...

Open challenge to organizations desperate for good talent : change your recruitment pattern thus:

Give a combined job description of what you need from a team of 3 people. And invite job applications from groups of 3 buddies rather than from individuals. Instead of giving Rs.30k/month salary to one person and expecting him/her to deliver 3 logon ka kaam (which will NEVER happen the way you want no matter how much money you throw at it, please learn and realize this by now), pay each person Rs.10k only, but hire 3 ppl who are already a team who will then deliver a lot more than that 30k single person would.

There's something magical about the number 3 when it comes to teamwork. Through college and school, I've mostly been in groups of 3 friends doing things together. In two people, there's chance of conflict and the team abruptly falling apart, but with 3 there's stability, much like a tripod stand.
