COst of a bad hire

How much can a bad hire cost your company?

Between internal and external recruitment efforts, candidate interviews, new employee training, unemployment rate increases, stress on other overworked employees, and possibly even lost customers, the cost of a poor hiring decision is difficult to measure.

The impact of having one single employee in department that is not a good fit can be a tremendous drain on productivity and severely impact an organizations ability to retain talent. When you factor in additional costs related to exposure to theft, duplication of effort, and the inability to optimize all human resources; the potential costs multiply exponentially.
