44% of Hiring Managers rated their last hire “not good” according to a study by Hudson a few years ago. That costs you money if you, or a manager who works for you, are part of that 44%.
But think about the other costs involved. Hiring is a business decision for you — but it’s a life decision for them. If you don’t do your due diligence to make sure the person you hire is the right fit, the knock-on effect could be significant. Letting someone go (or keeping them on if they are not right) could affect that individual for years to come.
You owe it to yourself, your team, your organization — and to the people you hire — to learn to interview well and to teach your managers to do the same.
