If there was ever a place where the right fit is necessary it is at the initial hire. Placing the right person in the right job is important at all levels, very important at the manager level and essential at the executive level.

Calculating the cost of a good hire is easy. Think about how much impact employees have on your bottom line. Would it make a difference if everyone on your sales force or every regional manager generated as much business as your best performer? Calculating the cost of a hiring mistake at even entry professional levels can be staggering.

Factoring in the employee's salary, benefits, cost of interviewing time, training time, severance, lost sales, lost customers, lower productivity and morale, makes the cost of a bad hire well over $100,000 and between $7,000 to $34,000 for even the lowest level managers. And that number doesn't include litigation costs associated with wrongful discharge, an area of litigation that is increasing in frequency. At the executive level this number could easily be in the millions.

We have assessed thousands of E-team individuals in our 30 years of helping intelligent businesses excel. Depend on consultants who are PhD level psychologist, experts in testing, interviewing and assessment, and whose full time endeavor is helping businesses raise the performance bar in their organization by hiring and promoting on the very best "fits."

The old saying about fitting a "round peg in a square hole" is still true.
