Does this sound familiar?…
You‘re excited about a new employee you hired. They start, you introduce them to co-workers, clients, and leadership and you can’t wait for them to lighten the workload you’re currently carrying.
Then a week or two go by and even though at first you don’t want to admit it, you realize you’re not seeing the progress or perhaps the skills, or maybe the attitude or work ethic you expected.
You start to worry, you might feel embarrassed and you might question yourself and your hiring skills.
At the same time, you don’t know what to do. Should you just cut your losses and let them go (and if so, how the heck should you tell them?!)?
Or should you stick it out and try to make it work?
If you can relate, then you’re not alone!
In fact, the Harvard Business Review shows that a whopping 80% of employee turnover is the result of poor recruitment decisions. 😳
