So many employers approach a recruitment project without a lot of planning or forethought. And the repercussions of a poor hiring decision can be detrimental not just to moral, but also to the bottom line!
It is so often a case of needing someone to fill a role because of an unexpected resignation or perhaps a sudden but pleasing increase in work.
A lack of time can lead to a less than satisfactory recruitment being run when it really needs to be a highly strategic and purposeful exercise if an organisation is to have any opportunity of benefiting from the whole process.
Are you really saving? The cost of a bad hire is stated to be up to five times the fee paid to an external recruiter and it doesn’t stop there – the fallout around moral can stack up in a negative way too! Then there is the fact that an external recruiter will provide you with an insurance policy – called a replacement guarantee! If the organisation must start again due to a poor hiring decision, the full cost is realistically doubled – let’s not even discuss the time issue!
It makes a lot of good sense to outsource recruitment to an external recruiter – just make sure that the recruiter you chose does have a successful track record in your industry, has been doing recruitment for many years and can provide multiple testimonials in support of their track record.
I always found your recruits a higher standard and your screening better.
