The Cost of Bad Hires – $100 million for Zappos – and how to avoid it
People are the most valuable resource for a business. Many of us who build and run companies have had bad experiences hiring wrong. Many leaders I know have 3 things that emerge often…
1) I wish I had known that person would not perform as we had expected
2) I have wasted a lot of time, money and energy on the wrong people
3) There’s got to be a better way to be sure we attract and hire the right people
I work with all my clients to assess their team and be sure current and new candidates share the proper behaviors, values and talents necessary for each company. This process has saved many clients tremendous amounts of time, money and frustration.
