Brandon Hall Group, the leading independent Human Capital Management research/analyst firm, has released new research that shows the cost of a bad hire and the implications on organizational performance.

The report, The True Cost of a Bad Hire, outlines the steps organizations can take to improve the prospects for a good fit between candidate and organization. Currently, over 30% of companies are unclear about how much they pay for bad hires.

Understanding the cost of a bad hire, also defined as a “bad fit” hire, can be significant, both in terms of dollars as well as the negative impact on the organization in terms of departmental, business unit or corporate performance, company culture, and employee morale. Today, the cost of a bad hire is much less of a recruitment metric and much more of a business metric.

“More than ever before, organizations must think more strategically about their talent acquisition processes and invest in solutions that identify quality talent,” said Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group. “Companies are rethinking their talent acquisition strategies to align more closely with business imperatives. Understanding the cost of a bad hire and improving processes to ensure quality hires is an important first step. This report provides insight and transparency around the true cost of a bad hire.”
