41% of companies estimate that the cost of hiring someone who is not a good fit for the position is $25,000. Does your company have an extra $25,000 to waste? Not many do. Yet, few company managers and owners have the extra hours in their week to effectively locate, screen, interview, reference check and skill test potential candidates.
