The costs associated with making a poor selection decision can be substantial. Some of these costs can include business disruption, customer dissatisfaction, re-advertising, re-training, and downtime. Often these costs are under-estimated. Therefore, investing in a thorough process which reduces your risk of 'getting it wrong' is simply good business practice.
As the labour market for talent remains tight, understanding that a recruitment process is a public relations exercise for your business is fundamental. A poor process is talked about in the market, negatively impacting on your employer profile and reducing the number of quality candidates when recruiting.
