Re: When the candidates are not the problem
Exactly, Joe. It's one of those things everybody knows but no one likes to talk about. Some hiring managers think that making the process long, exhausting, and hard maybe gives more ccredibility to the company and reflects the importance of the position. They are wrong. Then there are the complains about "there is no talent," which is not really true. -Susan

Re: When the candidates are not the problem
Indeed, Susan.  For all the talk about how much a "bad hire" costs, what about the cost of a bad, slow, inefficient hiring process?  Or the cost of leaving a position unfilled for too long?

Or even the cost of a "mediocre hire" to save a few bucks on process when a better process costing a bit more time and money could lead to a stellar hire?

But nobody likes to talk about that.

When the candidates are not the problem
I think there are two things many companies fail: Bering ready to invest in talent and making the process of hiring as stressful, difficult, and tricky as they can. The end result not always reflects success. Perhaps it's about time they changed something? -Susan
