Hiring is risky. Hiring is expensive. Hiring is time-consuming. How to avoid hiring a toxic employee? How would you determine if a candidate is a great fit for a position?
Yes! Hiring is a risky proposition. You never know if the person you’re hiring is going to be a good fit for the job, or if they’re going to end up being a liability. Hiring is also expensive - you have to pay for advertising, background checks, and sometimes even training. And it can be time-consuming, especially if you have to weed through a bunch of applications. All of these factors make hiring a very stressful process. Unfortunately, there are also times when things can go wrong, even if you’ve done everything right.
