If you’ve found yourself in the same position, you’re probably wondering what your options are moving forward. In this article, we’ll explore your choices. But first…

How big of an issue is hiring regret?

The latest report highlighting the issue reveals some interesting statistics:

  1. In the past 12 months, nearly half of senior decision makers feel they have made a bad hire
  2. 61% of these employers felt that the reason for this was settling for a candidate whose skills didn’t match the role
  3. 56% felt the hire was bad because they rushed the hiring process

Of those who responded, 82% reported severe negative impacts to their business.

Why is this happening now?

One of the main reasons employers are experiencing this now is because of the great resignation. The employment market is flooded with candidates and many businesses are experiencing gaps in their workforce.

A sudden exit could cause business owners to make a snap decision to fill the role. In other cases, employers have been so overwhelmed by the number of applicants that they end up hiring poorly.
