Headhunting is a common term in the business world and refers to the process of identifying and recruiting qualified candidates for various open positions within your organization. Many business owners are so busy with the day-to-day aspects of running their organizations that recruiting can become somewhat of an afterthought. Unfortunately, hiring a candidate who is not a good fit for your company can backfire in the long run. Here's what you need to know about headhunting to decide if it's right for your organization.
The Dangers of Hiring Inadequate Candidates
When you are in a rush to hire someone, it can be tempting to make an offer to the first person who is even remotely qualified simply to save time. However, this can lead to further problems as the person may not have the skills or knowledge necessary to do the job successfully. This will end up costing your organization more time and money on additional training in the long run, so this short-term gain will result in a long-term loss.
In the worst case scenario, the person could be so wrong for the position that you end up having to fire them. Then, you'll have to start the candidate search process all over again. This will set you back even further than if you had simply taken the time to find the right candidate in the first place.
