Employers continually strive to ensure that their Recruitment strategies are smarter, faster and more efficient than ever before. But in their haste to fill their much-needed vacancies, there are occasions when the wrong people are hired. The consequences of this are often more serious than many Employers realise.
Indeed, we recently undertook detailed research into the impact of a bad hire on businesses, and we published our findings in the Guide to the Cost of a Bad Hire which is free to download, read and share.
In it, we have provided clarity over what is actually meant by a ‘bad hire’, the reasons why some hires fail, and the costs incurred as a result. It is this latter that has – as you might expect – formed the focal point of the guide.
We found that the costs of a bad hire transcend the monetary consequences for most Employers. Yes, this does have a considerable affect, but it is the way in which a poor choice or a so-called ‘toxic’ employee can impact almost every area of the business that is often overlooked by Employers.
A bad hire can of course be avoided, and while it would be foolish to suggest that the risk can be eliminated altogether it can certainly be minimised. To find out how to increase your chances of a great hire and mitigate the risk of a poor one, see below.
