Common Problems

Where recruitment is not part of the overall business strategy and associated people plan, managers often make poor recruitment decisions which has a number of significant implications for the organisation.

Firstly, it is costly in terms of time, recruitment fees, lost output and productivity.

It also has an impact on staff morale and confidence in the business’ management abilities as well as impacting customers through quality issues.

Finally, it also impacts business performance and can take leaders away from developing the business by focusing them on fire fighting issues that could have been avoided had they ensured that the business had a clear recruitment, induction and training plan.



Recruiting for success is not just about finding the right people for the right roles within your organisation. It starts well before that by being clear on where the business is heading, what the culture and values are, what the organisational structure looks like alongside clear roles and responsibilities and associated performance measures.

All too often businesses look to recruit reactively due to business growth or a client win and rush to put a “bum on a seat” without truly understanding the skills and more importantly the values and attitude an individual needs to be successful within the team and wider organisation.
