Hiring quality employees is critical to the success of any business. Bad hires diminish the safety, integrity, and profitability of your business.
Consider these hiring facts:
- More than 2 million people are victims of violence in the workplace each year” – National Crime Victimization Survey
- The dollar cost of a single episode of serious workplace violence has been calculated to be $250,000″ – The National Safe Workplace Institute
- 33% of all businesses failures are due to internal theft – US Department of Commerce
- The average bad hire that leaves a company within six months costs the company approximately $40,000 in severance pay, training, wasted human resources time, possible search firm fees, loss of productivity and impact on employee morale” – US Department of Labor
