A "neutral" rating can be slightly postive or negative. New hires will only appear when the neutral rating is slightly positive. It may happen that you have a neutral disposition but Hybrids or Androids still won't appear in the hire screen... Increase your relations to more positive!

Internal Recruitment Algorithm

Available recruits (hires) chosen from a list 180 units. The algorithm sequence at the start of a new day:
1) Check if hires are at capacity for each list.
2) Randomly remove current hires or leave alone.
3) Randomise a quantity to appear.
4) Randomise appearance quantity into these, in order: humans, bio-chemists, engineers, quantum physicists, hybrids and finally androids.
Additions to the hire list is no more than eight units per day. Capacity is twenty for each of the four types. (unconfirmed)
