In the world of talent acquisition, nothing stings quite like the realization that what was once a promising candidate has turned out to be a bad hire.
The frustration of buyer’s remorse extends beyond consumer products; it’s a common sentiment when companies hire individuals who fall below expectations or who misrepresented themselves during the hiring process. Because of this, modern recruiting leaders and their teams must look beyond candidate skillsets and delve deeper to identify individuals whose character and ethical values align with the company’s culture.
This is often easier said than done. But fear not, because in our upcoming webinar with hiring experts Ben Mones and Hung Lee, we’re unveiling approaches that will enable teams to greatly improve not only quality of hire, but also employee retention.
