Investing in the Interview
Selecting the Right Team Members for your Organization
The most valuable part of any company is its employees. However, not every person is a fit for your organization’s environment. Finding dynamic employees is vital to the continued success of any organization. Recognizing the importance of investing time into the interview process and mastering interviewing skills is an essential portion of your business plan. If management does not invest in the interview, they will ultimately hire the wrong individual for the job.
Bad hires mean thousands of dollars lost in diminished productivity and administrative expenses before the employee quits or is terminated. To replace that employees position will cost anywhere between 75-150% of that employees annual salary. Although costs will increase, productivity and morale will decline.
