What’s the Cost of Hiring the Wrong People?

Are you in charge of your own recruitment? If so, there’s a lot to think about, and if you get it wrong, you could be heading for disaster with the wrong team behind you. We’re looking at what can happen when you hire the wrong people for your business.

Productivity Nosedive

Yes, hire the wrong people for the job and you’re heading for trouble. It’s the kind of trouble you get when you’ve hired someone who doesn’t have the right skills for the job. Or it could be someone who simply doesn’t get on with other people, perhaps you wanted a team player and it turns out you’ve got someone who’s only happy when they’re flying solo. When things get uncomfortable and either your new employee can’t do the job they were hired for, or they’re finding it so hard to get on with everyone else, everyone else stops working too. This is when productivity takes a nosedive.

Poor Team Morale

When you hire the wrong person everybody else suffers and morale goes downhill. And you can guarantee your bottom dollar that as a result, work will suffer too. If there’s bickering and bad feeling, that will also have an impact on morale, and just as importantly on productivity. No one feels like working when there’s a bad atmosphere and everybody’s feeling low.

Financial Implications

Yes, and this is where it hits your pocket because when your team start to suffer, productivity slows down, that’s if it doesn’t grind down to a complete halt. You may have to fork out in training to get your new employee up to speed, or perhaps go through the whole process of rehiring again, which is going to be costly and time consuming.

Bad Reputations Don’t Make Money

If you hire the wrong person and things go wrong it could affect your reputation, and not in a good way. How about a bad experience that one of your other employees suffers as a result of shoddy work, or a customer/client has an equally bad experience at the hands of your staff and reports it on social media, these are just a couple of examples of how it can go desperately wrong. That’s a bad reputation you’re going to have to work hard to repair.
