Summary

Summary

Everyone makes mistakes. Some learn from their mistakes while others seem destined to repeat their errors. As HR professionals quickly discover, you must hire well if you are to effectively compete in today's talent driven economy. Hiring mistakes are not only costly, they are simply bad decisions for everyone involved, including your most productive personnel. Ask the wrong questions, conduct superficial background checks, and make quick decisions and you may weaken your organisation. Hire right and you'll build a strong, competitive, and energetic organisation for years to come. This is the first book to catalogue the major hiring mistakes organisations make as well as outline key lessons to be learned from each mistake.
