Interviewing Candidates

Think about this for a minute-lets say you have an employee who works for you for a year and makes $40,000 a year. She is an entry-level accountant. Over the course of that year you have a number of people who collectively spend a significant number of hours training her. You may also send her to off-site training. It probably takes several weeks before she can work independently for an extended length of time. The point is, do the math-it probably does cost you at least $40,000 when she leaves after a relatively short period of time. It doesn't matter whether an employee is slinging hamburgers or performing brain surgery. When she leaves, you see a large investment walking out the door. To avoid this, make sure your interviewing process is first-class so that you will be able to hang on to your investment!

Thanks for reading.
