According to a 2016 survey by CareerBuilder, more than half of American companies said a bad hiring decision had negatively impacted their business this year. Many company leaders cited associated challenges such as lost revenue, poor productivity, lower employee morale, and strained client relations. Furthermore, 27 percent said a single bad hire had cost them over $50,000.1 Needless to say, this is not only a critical mistake to building a world-class culture of employee engagement, but it also adversely affects revenue and profitability outcomes in a serious way.
So here are the 7 most glaring signs that you hired the wrong employee:
1. They have trouble acclimating to a new environment.
Every workplace is different and learning new expectations and norms can be uncomfortable at first. However, employees must be able to adapt to a new environment and respect leaders’ preferences and ways of working.
2. They do just enough to get by.
