What is the cost of a bad hire?

what-is-the-cost-of bad-hire

As a business practice, you need the right consultant to recruit the ‘good’ suitable candidates for you – because you cannot afford to hire ‘bad’. The costs of selecting the wrong candidate include not only the tangible finances but the climate in your company as well. Examine these facts as a result of a bad hire :

• Eighty percent of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions.

• Replacing a recent new hire costs one-third of the new hire’s annual salary. The costs will rise up the organizational hierarchy – that means much more costs when you hire bad for the senior positions !!

• Hiring Managers spend an average of 3 to 4 days sourcing, screening, interviewing and conducting background checks on each position. But, if you engage the right recruitment consultant who has the requisite work experience in the relevant domain or the industry you are recruiting from, you can save yourself from this trouble. Candidate search is a specialized skill-set that is not possessed by all recruiters and hence, the job portals cannot help you every time.

• In addition to the hiring manager’s time, the HR assistant may spend an additional 20 hours per position on administrative functions, such as reviewing resumes, filing, recording, scheduling etc. But, when you have out-sourced the recruiting activity to the right ‘dependable’ external consultant, you save time and cost.

• Poor hiring can negatively impact the work culture in your company, lowering the morale and productivity of other employees too.

Understandably then, there is very little scope for committing an error when selecting the good suitable candidate.
