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. As well as managing the talent pipeline at HEG, he's also an avid blogger and all round recruiting geek. Combining all of these elements he's kindly written a guest blog below.   One of the things I love most about social platforms such as LinkedIn and Twitter is the opportunity to listen to what my peer group has to say about their role in recruitment. In particular, I enjoy listening to ex-agency recruiters turned in-house recruiters discuss how they will “go it alone” with a “who needs an agency” type maverick attitude. This is archetypal...

contract developer jobs

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...

international-womens-day

Today across the world people are celebrating International Women’s Day, an event first put forward to advance Women’s suffrage over a century ago. One hundred years on we celebrate women’s contribution across the world, and look ahead, with this year’s theme centred around the United Nations “Planet 50-50 by 2030”, seeking to achieve empowerment and equality across the world over the next 15 years. As it stands, the numbers are surprising; today women only hold a fifth of parliamentary seats in the UK, make up only 19 out of 196 heads of state, and are estimated to earn over £300,000 less than men over their working lives. The UN’s goal is clear; “to achieve the...

world book day at eligo

For the parents amongst you, you’ll have spent the morning helping your child dress up as a character from their favourite story in preparation for World Book Day. Just as dressing up shows the joy in revelling in the make-believe, Books have the ability to spark something inside for everyone. They open the door to different worlds, they comfort, they disturb, and they share a single message to thousands of people, or leave a thousand thoughts with just one. Last year at Eligo we asked our team to name some of the most useful career books they have read, but this year we thought we’d expand on this to recommend some of the books that we’ve particularly enjoyed, that have had a...
