Everybody knows that it’sgood to have ‘the right people on the bus,’ and to have those people sitting inthe ‘right seats on the bus,’ but this is not an easy thing to do!

Average employee turnover is12%, standard HR practice calculates average turnover cost at 1.5 timessalary. But what about the effects of poor teamwork and hiring errors thatcause failed strategic initiatives, damaged relationships, lost time, lostsales, and related issues and costs? The ‘collateral damage’ of a failed hireor promotion can assume dizzying proportions.
For example, a company withan annual turnover cost of about $300k – as measured by the ‘transactional’method but the combined impact of a single bad hire, in this case, a VP ofSales cost the company over $4 million – that’s 14 times the transactional viewof turnover costs.
