PI Worldwide to Host Webinar on How to Avoid Mistakes Leading to Bad Hires

New Webinar Series Sheds Light on How to Take the Guesswork Out of the Hiring Process

WELLESLEY, Mass., May 27, 2014 /CNW/ - PI Worldwide, a leader in science-driven insights that help optimize the performance and potential of individuals, teams, and organizations, will host a webinar titled "Avoiding the Seven Mistakes That Lead to a Bad Hire," to examine the stages of the talent acquisition process – including finding, assessing, acquiring and onboarding talent. Learn how you can more successfully and reliably hire the talent your company needs to meet its growth goals. The one-hour broadcast will take place Thursday, June 5, 2014 at 2 p.m. ET.

Significant financial consequences can result from making a poor hire including recruiting costs, lost productivity, poor performance, and low motivation. A bad hire is not only damaging to morale and disruptive to the work environment, it's costly. The U.S. Department of Labor has estimated the average cost of a poor hiring decision can equal 30% of that hire's first year's probable earnings. In addition, employers spend an average of $7,000 to replace a salaried employee, $10,000 to replace a mid-level employee, and $40,000 to replace a senior executive.

During the webinar, "Avoiding the Seven Mistakes that Lead to a Bad Hire," PI Worldwide experts will:

  • Discuss the most common pitfalls that occur in the talent acquisition process and their impact on the business
  • Share strategies, tools, and tactics for finding, assessing, acquiring, and onboarding the most relevant and qualified talent for your teams and business needs
  • Examine real-world examples that demonstrate why traditional talent acquisition processes aren't as efficient or effective as those that include assessments
