At Aspire Cambridge we know the importance of finding the right person for the right job. Businesses throughout Cambridge and across the UK are finding it increasingly difficult to match the perfect candidate for the job. With the unemployment rate in the UK being at it’s lowest since the 1970’s its no surprise that the demand for staff is increasing and poor recruiting decisions are becoming more likely. 

Could your recruitment decisions be costing you?

In a recent survey it was found that nine out of ten respondents believe that their company had made bad recruitment decisions. The implications of these poor choices impact even the highest management level despite the belief that it does not cost anything to hire the wrong person for the wrong job. The REC state that a poor hire at middle-management level at a salary of £42,000 could end up costing a business £132,015 in total to resolve (REC) The reasons for the difficulty in finding the ideal candidates for a vacancy range from the lack of time to and only accessing a small talent pool, missing out on the specifically skilled profiles. Being real with the real people you hire is vital to the success of your hiring and the financial impact of your business.

What Are The Real Impacts Of A Bad Hire?

Resourcing the talent for any industry requires businesses responding to their challenge and using responsive approaches to the trends in the recruitment industry. 85% of HR decision-makers admit their business made a bad hire and the financial impacts are not short term (REC). The process of hiring the wrong person could create issues with training costs, negative staff morale, recruitment costs. The value of a bad hire to any organisation has implications which affect the whole work force and companies will need to invest in people and resources to counteract the financial loss.
