Company A Faces Major Challenges After Unsuccessful Hiring Attempts
The Director of Human Resources was frustrated after having spent the time and resources to find two senior level executives, both of which seemed like a good fit for the company based on it’s typical hiring metrics and procedures. After sifting through countless resumes, interviews and references, an executive was hired. The COO was perfect on paper but did not share the same mindset as the company. Company A was looking for a trail blazer.
After realizing this was an unsuccessful fit, the replacement search began again. After already losing two executives in a short time frame, Company A did not have the resources or time to accomplish the comprehensive screening, background, and reference check that MedBest experts use. Unfortunately another unsuccessful match at the senior level was made. Over the time period of losing the original COO and subsequently the following two, revenue dropped drastically for Company A. Furthering the problem, several other subordinates left Company A due to an unsuccessful comradery with the new COO’s. Money was wasted, vacancies developed in crucial management positions and morale sunk to an all time low.
