So we ask, how often does your company allow unqualified staff members to make decisions that could cost your business thousands of dollars? Before you answer “Never!”, we as you to please consider your hiring management chain of command.

The average salary in the US these days is around $47,000, which doesn’t include benefits, tax, training, and other hidden costs. When managers aren’t appropriately armed with the right hiring techniques, the imminent risks are that you can potentially lose strong candidates and potentially hire the wrong candidates on a regular basis, exposing your business to unnecessary risk as well as lost time, money, and productivity. Who needs that?
