Tom understands the importance of a right hire from skill set to cultural fit which results in maximum productivity and retention. “According to studies we’ve done with our clients, the average hiring mistake costs fifteen times an employee’s base salary in hard costs and productivity loss. Think about it: a single hiring blunder on a $100,000 employee can cost a company $1.5 million or more. If your business is making ten such mistakes a year, it’s pouring $15 million down the drain annually.” If you can’t afford a bad hire, contact Tom Lapas.
