When it’s time to hire your business will have an idea of why you want to recruit, who you want to bring in and how you’re going to do it.
But how effective and efficient are your current processes?
Before making any hiring decision it’s important to take a step back and weigh up your end goals and the best way of achieving them.
A poorly thought-out recruitment strategy will end up costing your organisation more time, more money and lead to high turnover rates.
Some 2017 research from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) discovered that UK businesses are failing to hire the right person for two out of five roles.
It went on to state that 85% of HR decision-makers admitted their organisation had made a bad hire with a third (33%) believing these mistakes cost their business nothing.
The reality is a poor hire of a mid-manager earning £42,000 per annum can cost a business more than £132,00 with the hidden costs of bad recruitment including money wasted on training, lost productivity and increased staff turnover.
There’s plenty on the line.
But putting in the groundwork before going to market can mitigate the risks of making bad hiring decisions.
