People are the heart of business. They’re building your products, creating opportunities for revenue and nurturing relationships with your customers day in and day out. Hiring the right people for the job is critical. But we know this is easier said than done.

The average cost of a bad hire can cost you ~30% of the employee’s first-year earnings according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Another stat from Link Humans reports the average cost as high as $240,000 in expenses. Wowza!

Join HigherPeople for a crash course in hiring! We’ll share strategies for de-risking your hiring decisions, determining the right profile for your business needs and how to set your search up for success.
