When considering whether you should implement testing as part of the recruitment process, think about this fact. A bad hire costs a business on average £8,200, rising to £12,000 for senior managers or directors, states CIPD.
When it’s time to fill a vacancy, you want to be sure the person you recruit is the right one for the job.
Recruiting staff is a costly exercise so getting the hire wrong does not just cost the business money. You must also consider the loss of productivity, loss of knowledge, any costs to hire a replacement, as well as further training costs.
