I’m a student doing a
research paper on Executive Recruitment, and the pros of using
recruitment firms. I was wondering if you could answer three quick questions.
1) Sometimes it can be more expensive to hire a recruitment firm
instead of using internal recruitment or HR, but in your estimation,
what are the hidden costs associated with a bad executive hire?
The hidden costs are potentially enormous as I am sure your research
is showing. There are many examples of hiring decisions that could
have been improved with the right help from a professional executive
search consulting firm. Many companies don’t know what they don’t
know about the search and hiring process and that is where the trouble can start.
