true cost of wrong hire

Frankly, I'm staggered by the number of business owners and hiring managers who complain about their salespeople ... when they were usually the fools who hired them in the first place. Bad salespeople in your organisation are a symptom of management problems; bad management is the primary cause, and the problems start with bad recruitment. And bad recruitment is heart-stoppingly expensive. Read on and discover why a bad sales hire can cost you as much as 30 to 125 times the basic salary you pay the salesperson who doesn't work out in your role. I'm not even going to trouble you with the calculation of what a bad sales management hire can cost you. I repeat, 30 to 125 times base...

security engineer value

You might have noticed: Security Engineers are in demand. You may have fielded calls from multiple recruiters or you may see other companies paying much more for a role you’re doing for less at yours; ultimately the market is currently driven by engineers like you. Recently I wrote an article for the companies trying to attract the best security engineers in this market, for the companies that believe that those security engineers should be queuing at the door to work at a company such as theirs. I asked them to consider the same as I’m going to ask you now: Do you know your own value as a Security Engineer? Your value as a quality security engineer should not be underestimated,...

hire the best security engineers

Let’s cut to the chase. A lot of companies think that engineers should be queuing at the door to join them because they are a fantastic company and they are growing, they put out adverts on job boards and on social media. These are only seen by those actively looking. Reality is that most of the best security engineers are either secure in their current role but open to something better, or they are in transition and have multiple opportunities to consider. As such, you need to offer something different and/or better to get the best in front of you. Here are the facts: The security engineer market is busy, there is a severe skills shortage, there is huge disconnect between...

recruitment costs graph

Do you know how much your company loses from the departure of an employee? Do you know the recruitment costs to hire a replacement? How about the recruitment cost of hiring the wrong replacement? Calculating these costs isn’t simple; you have to look at a number of factors including reduced productivity, angry customers, and lost investment. Of course these aren’t specifically monetary values either. Regardless, these headaches can eventually prove costly both in time and expense. This is especially true in the hiring of a wrong candidate in the market I specialise in – Fire & Security Recruitment – where there is currently a large skills shortage.  Wrong decisions can...

How to answer STAR interview question

The STAR interview format is often used by employers who hold structured competency based interviews but understanding STAR can help you be the STAR in any interview.  So first things first . . . what is STAR? Situation Task Action Result This format is a universally recognised technique for assessing responses in an interview setting.  Some interviewers use STAR to score you based on how well you communicate your answer across each element of STAR. They do not always disclose that they are using this technique, in which case you could be losing ‘points’ without knowing. More forgiving interviewers give you advance warning of a competency based interview, in which...
