Seven Step RPO on TLNT – How to Stop Hiring the Wrong People

Next Previous
On Tuesday, TLNT featured a piece by Seven Step’s CEO Beth Gilfeather (@bethgilfeather) on how your organization can stop hiring the wrong people, calling out several interview warning signs you should be aware of.

Here’s a bit of what she had to say:

TLNT: Standardized interviews, questionnaires, complex scoring systems, background checks, drug tests and personality assessments — Corporate America has certainly engineered what should be a fool-proof process to help companies avoid hiring the wrong person.

Despite all of these processes and platforms, companies can still miss red flags in the hiring process, in fact, 66 percent of U.S. employers have been affected by a bad hire in the last year. And hiring errors come at a cost: a bad hire can cost a company as much as $50,000.

Luckily, picking up on warning signals is not difficult provided you practice keen observation and listening skills throughout the interview.
