No one wants to make a bad hire.
But nearly 3 out of 4 employers say they’ve hired the wrong person. Yikes.
It is no secret that bad hires are expensive. So… why is it so pervasive? Why is everyone still making bad hires?
Just hire better people, simple right?
Not so simple, it turns out. While it is a complicated issue, the answer likely lies in your hiring process. Putting in the work to improve here will benefit your culture and your bottomline. People are your most important asset.
The goal should be to be super selective and quickly identify the best candidates.
Your recruiters are not mind readers. Hiring managers need to know exactly what they’re looking for instead of relying on a job description that is likely outdated or just not specific enough.
