Statistics: Why 95% of Companies are Struggling with Bad Hiring for Qualified Applicants
By Arun Kumar
There are a few potential reasons why companies may struggle with bad hiring for qualified applicants:
High competition: If the job market is highly competitive, it can be difficult for companies to attract and retain top talent. This may result in companies settling for candidates who are not as qualified or experienced as they would like.
Lack of clarity about job requirements: Sometimes, companies may not have a clear understanding of what they are looking for in a candidate. This can lead to confusion during the hiring process and result in the hiring of a candidate who may not be the best fit for the role.
Ineffective hiring process: If the company's hiring process is not effective, it can result in hiring the wrong candidates. This could be due to a lack of thorough screening or interviewing, insufficient background checks, or relying too heavily on subjective criteria.
Biases: Unconscious biases can also play a role in hiring decisions. This can result in companies overlooking qualified candidates due to factors such as their gender, race, or age.
Limited talent pool: In some cases, the company may be limited in the number of qualified applicants they receive. This could be due to a lack of diversity in the industry or location of the company, or a lack of outreach to potential candidates.
Addressing these factors can help companies improve their hiring process and increase their chances of hiring qualified applicants.
