Why New Hires Fail

Updated: Apr 6, 2019

So you're hiring?

You've done this before. You know what you're doing, right? (Or do you?)

Then why doesn't it work out more often?

Gallup research group believes that around 85% of the failures are due to process.

Harvard Business Review found that there is an average of a 50% hiring rate failure (whether hourly, salary, entry level, or CEO).

On the flip side, The Center For Creative Leadership found that only 19% of new hires could unequivocally be considered a success.


LinkedIn recently published that traditional interviews fail in 3 areas:

1) They don't assess a candidate's soft skills 2) They don't reveal a candidate's weaknesses 3) The bias of the interviewers

What I offer is a way to actually not fall into those interviewing/hiring traps.

You still get to choose whom you will hire.

I won't make you read a post explaining how this works unless your interested.

So if you want to position yourself to achieve a better hiring outcome than 50%...let's talk.

I want to do business with you!
