Consistent turnover can affect almost every part of an organization, especially payroll and the wasted onboarding costs but as substantial as these costs are, they only represent the tip of the iceberg. Hiring mistakes hurt morale, productivity, customer relationships and brand image. Once a company acquires a reputation for having heavy turnover, it will be seriously challenged to attract new talent, new customers and even suppliers.
So why are companies making poor decisions when it comes to the hiring process? It may be that your company in too much of a rush to fill a position and your vetting process is simplified to save time. Your business may be assessing the wrong skills and a complete overhaul of your assessment tools is needed. A lack of behavioral interviewing, discovering how a candidate acts in a specific employment-related situation, is an issue because you won’t get a sense of how a hire will work for company until their first day.
Establishing a standardized, documented hiring process with skilled personnel will help you reduce the risk of making a bad hire. With 74% of companies admitting that they make at least one bad hire annually, this isn’t the area that you should put aside and hope for the best. Prioritize your hiring process and watch your new hire retention skyrocket. If done well, employee morale and engagement will increase while your hiring costs will greatly be reduced.
