Poor hiring practices can cause lasting detrimental effects to an organisation.
According to the Harvard Business Review, 80 per cent of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions and 45 per cent of bad hires are attributed to poor screening processes.
It is estimated that a poor screening and hiring practices leads to financial costs associated with advertising, recruitment, training, supervision and down time can be anywhere from 2.5 to 3 times the employee’s salary.
Performance, Morale and Reputation
Any manager who has had to manage a non-productive employee will attest to the amount of time and energy involved in performance management. The unproductive employee can impact staff morale directly through poor behaviour including bullying and indirectly through absenteeism, poor output and management attention. Organisations can face reputational damage and reduced sales / efficiency as a direct result of a bad hire.
Poor Workplace Behaviour
Hiring the wrong candidate can lead to issues with poor workplace behaviours such as bullying, aggression & harassment which place organisations at risk of creating an unsafe working environment.
