Just like a dog, a hire can be bad for a multitude of reasons, including the hirer (trainer), the hired (dog), everyone's expectations (in both cases some praise and/or a treat), and the environment (workplace/home).
HR Dive is here to help (with the bad hire*):
"Sooner or later, even the most seasoned HR professionals will admit it: they've made a bad hire. For some reason, a person will fizzle out on the job, even though his or her stellar credentials promised a perfect fit with your company. Whether this is an entry-level person or a senior executive, the impact of a bad hire on a department or company can be devastating. So what do you do?"
HR Dive walks you through the process after you accept it was your bad (hire):
- more common than you think
- why is it a bad hire
- reforming a bad hire
- when to say goodbye
- avoiding future bad hires
