22 percent of new recruits leave within 45 days of starting, with a staggering 16 percent that leave within the first week. They leave because their expectations (or yours) has not been met. There were lies told in the job interview by either party or the on-boarding process was nothing short of terrible. The reality is we all can do better - and will, if we keep up to date with the rest of the market.
We all know the cost of recruiting new people to the fold, and how expensive it is to lose a good employee, so if we find someone that is a good fit, make sure they know it from every experience they have with your firm.
Our positioning in the market, and evidence of high quality work and client successes, has kept us in good stead.
Having started my first business at 25 years of age, specializing in technology marketing, I thought I had it all. A marketer who understood technology marketing and who could talk the talk which at that time seemed to be, the height of the dot com boom, the most lucrative marketing position one could hold.
Then of course, someone came along and started talking about company culture, and marketers took a turn to start embellishing the on-boarding process of new recruits, with a mixture of "people marketing" with "technology marketing" - and for a time, that was all the rage. It seemed to be the only thing people were talking about and marketers starting play a role in human resources, giving recruiters and in-house HR managers the tools to "sell their brands" like they were a front line sales executive needing to close the deal in order to reach their quotas.
