Even organizations with experienced human resources professionals could benefit from a refresher course on good hiring practices. Regardless of how many individuals an organization has hired over the years, bad hires can still happen. There are various reasons for this, such as hiring someone quickly to fill an important opening, hiring someone because they knew an employee and seemed nice enough, or settling for a mediocre candidate instead of continuing to search for a better fit. The consequences of these mistakes can be serious, as almost three out of every four employees admit to having hired the wrong person for a position. The accompanying infographic, “Are You Making These 7 Hiring Mistakes,” presents statistics that highlight the significant financial and time costs of hiring mistakes.
