Struggling to find the right talent by yourself?

Why does recruitment go wrong?

Recruitment efforts made by business owners and managers can often lead to a poor result. There
are several reasons why this might be the case, some of which include:

  • The person simply does not exist (i.e. the expectations are not in line with the market
  • The business work culture and reputation is working against a successful outcome
  • The business does not have access to a large database of candidates
  • The job ad has flaws

Understanding the results of ineffective recruitment

Realising the effects of poor recruitment and the opportunity cost of handling recruitment internally
are often unclear. The need for new talent often arises from business growth, which often takes
priority over the added distraction of recruitment. With that front of mind, some common issues

  • Loss of productivity
  • Increased workload
  • Distracted hiring manager
  • Hiring the wrong candidates
  • Hiring a noncompliant candidate
  • Noncompliant collection of candidate data
  • Ineffective screening
