Personnel and employment costs generally constitute 80-90% of an organisation’s overheads.  Despite this fact, every manager will know of many cases where poor recruitment decisions have impacted adversely on the business.

Poor recruitment selection results in significant time being wasted and costs being incurred training/developing a new recruit who is evidently either insufficiently skilled or qualified, or whose personal characteristics are unsuited to the company culture. The resultant loss of efficiency, increased disruption and effect on team spirit and morale can be, and are often, both damaging and long-term.
