We've all been warned at length about the cost of a bad hire, and that cost is more than
just monetary. A bad hire can put a strain on a team, affecting those around them in a ripple
effect. CEO of HootSuite, Ryan Holmes said, “One subpar employee can throw an entire
department into disarray. Team members end up investing their own time into training someone
who has no future with the company.”  While the numbers are often staggering as to what a bad
hire actually costs an organization when you factor in all of the variables it is safe to say that
the cost is a minimum of one and half times the individuals potential first year earnings.
