When the wrong person is hired, it’s not just time and energy that’s wasted; it’s a money drain, too! Research from the US Department of Labor states that on average, a bad hire costs 30% of that hire’s annual salary. And in a 2013 CareerBuilder survey, “27 percent of U.S. employers reported a single bad hire cost more than $50,000.”
