How to Overcome Hiring Badly

Most companies have bad hiring experiences because they hire too quickly when they need to fill a position. This leads to mistake costing at least $200,000. One way to lower the possibility of a bad hire is to have a standardized hiring process. Perhaps a year-long orientation process would ,also, help keep newly hired employees.
