Recruitment is in full swing in the state of Michigan. According to the Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget, the national jobless rate is at 4.9%. The rates are even lower in Michigan at 4.5%, as of July 2016. With a tight job market and steep competition by other employers, the potential of making a bad hire increases. A bad hire can cost your company in a lot of ways: lost productivity, missed development opportunities, negative client service, low employee morale and accumulated costs for hiring and training. Every person is not cut out for every job.
