Despite there being so much data available on how costly a bad hire can be for your business, I still meet far too many organisations who are simply trying to "get a bum on  a seat". Recruitment is still considered as a hassle and the sooner the vacancy can be filled the people involved can move on to their "proper" job.

There is still far too little preparation or thought put into the behaviours and type of person a company needs to accelerate their performance whilst also investing in someone who aligns to their culture, values and organisation vision.

This article outlines some of the ways making a bad hire can badly affect your business and there are far more beyond these.

Short term thinking will cause real problems for you in the not too distant future!
