Why companies make mistakes

The Harvard Business Review points out that as much as
80% of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions.

We have already highlighted the fact most interviewers jump to conclusions too quickly.
There are many other reasons that they make mistakes when hiring …

  • The wrong personality fit
  • A poor skill’s match
  • Insufficient preparation time for the interview
  • Unclear performance objectives
  • Lack of a standard protocol for interviews
  • Asking the wrong questions
  • Not articulating the company culture or the job requirements
  • Inadequate interview evaluation
  • A poor fit of the candidate to his or her new team

If HBR is right, 8 out 10 companies could use help when it comes to getting the right people into the right job.
