Hidden Costs

Unfortunately, bad hires are made every day. While a bad hire can be disruptive to your workplace, the real cost goes much deeper. Quantifying the actual cost of a bad hire requires looking at how wide-spread its effect is. For example, consider the countless hours that are dedicated to the hiring process across your organization, including human resources, hiring manager and department managers. Internally, these employees work on time-consuming activities like recruiting, interviewing, hiring, training, benefits administration, and management. To then add to these hidden expenses your new employee’s salary, severance and quick turnover to start the hiring process all over again, it’s clear to see that the cost of a bad hire is very high.

Common Causes

Bad hires occur when there is a lack of patience, talent and resources in an organization. When hiring managers rush to fill a position or are anxious to fill a position, they tend to overlook a candidate’s gap in skills and experience. These situations often occur when a key employee departs suddenly and leaves a critical void in your organization, your current staff is overextended, or when urgent projects immediately require new talent and skills.
