Everything begins and ends with who you hire. Your success or failures as a company and as a manager depends on the success of your hires.
There has been a ton of research published on the financial costs of a miss-hire, but there are other costs consider. Hiring the wrong person and having to rehire for that position can result in stalled growth, missed opportunities, impact client satisfaction, and company reputation.
What is not always evident is the impact it has on your current employees who are asked to do more to fill in. Increased work load, low morale and loss of confidence in leadership can lead to undesired turnover, creating a downward spiral for companies trying to grow.
