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...

Talent Managers Using Agencies

Adam Reynolds is a talent manager and group head of recruitment at Host Europe Group, Europe's leading web hosting business.

The life of a developer contractor comes with superior earning potential than that of a permanent employee, and other perks such as flexible hours, and being your own boss. These benefits often compensate the potential negatives, namely; the lack of a regular stable income, and job security.   Whilst some contractors develop excellent relationships with specific clients, the uncertainty about where the next contract developer opportunity is coming from often still remains. One way to counter this is to use a contract developer recruiter, which not only can ensure that you are able to pick up contract opportunities steadily, but also brings a range of benefits with it. I’ve...
