Eliminate Risk: Go Contract-to-Hire
In a competitive environment for technology talent, companies struggle to hire the best candidates. It’s a risk-laden process, with a technical skills gap and subsequent productivity hit lurking in the future if the right hires don’t get made. Organizations end up getting left behind, especially when desperation leads them to make the wrong hire.
Leveraging temporary contracts as part of an overall staffing strategy is smart in the current market. Companies gain hiring flexibility and several advantages by simply going contract-to-hire. Let’s take a closer look to see how this approach makes sense for your business.
Bad Hires are Bad for Business
Simply put, a bad hire is bad for your business. Studies note that nearly one-quarter of all new employees fail within the first year. There are explicit costs to these mistakes – up to 30 percent of the employee’s annual salary, according to the Department of Labor. Ultimately, it can cost twice that salary to repair the productivity hit and replace the worker.
The risks of the hiring process are numerous. A candidate exaggerates their technical ability or lied about their professional experience. Perhaps they just don’t fit within the company’s office culture. Your interviewers didn’t properly vet their skills and personality, with the wrong choice between candidates as a result.
