While the financial impact is quantifiable, top CXOs actually rank a bad hire’s morale and productivity impacts ahead of monetary losses.
Why? A bad apple spoils the bunch, so to speak. Disengagement is contagious, which may be why employers can’t seem to defeat it.
In many ways, a bad hire’s effect on company culture echoes beyond the employee’s tenure. Poor performers lower the bar for other employees, and bad habits spread like a virus.
Unfortunately, bad hires aren’t always easy to spot, while this affects the startup’s ecosystem, culture, quality leaders and much more.
Avoid Bad Hires at any costs!
