Attracting and retaining talent is an expensive and existential matter for all businesses in the new digital economy. The cost of hiring a new employee can, on average, exceed 3 times the annual salary paid to the employee. Take into consideration the time to recruit, the onboarding and ensuring the candidate is successful – if the person does not work out you have lost time, energy and motivation in the team. The cost is significant. Ensuring you have the right performer that will be successful is key in hiring. One should look to hire for competency, character and commitment to the role, the organization and the team.
Then there is the Millennial factor coupled with the Boomer, Gen X and Gen Y workforce. Things have changed and it has become complex. Understanding, hiring and retaining the millennial employee is critical for the success, and succession, of a family business. This is true whether the employee is family or non-family.The ‘War for Talent’ is real. We are in a candidate short market. Expectations of candidates as well as companies are high and the failure rate of recruiting, aligning and retaining top performers is at an all-time high of 70%.
