Much analysis has been done regarding the cost of recruitment vs retaining a productive resource in a role-providing compelling reasons why you need to invest in retaining high performing employees.
However, the more common issue Is where an existing incumbent is replaced by another, who on the surface has a comparable skill set, typically demonstrated by them performing the same functionality in their previous role.
This recruitment methodology is fundamentally flawed and the primary reason why most companies fail to develop & maintain high performing teams.
Only two things matter in the workplace – WORKPLACE PERFORMANCE and WORKPLACE BEHAVIOUR
Together, these attributes are the catalyst that determines workplace culture. An optimal recruitment outcome provides the dynamic to enable teams to perform at levels over and above the sum of their parts – a suboptimal recruitment outcome can simply destroy team momentum.
Proof that a candidate has demonstrated competence in a similar role fails to address the real issue…
DOES THE CANDIDATE HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO DELIVER ON ALL REQUIREMENTS OF THE ROLE?
Recruitment methodology needs to determine the CAPABILITY of the candidate to perform in the role not just their technical competence.
