The Nine Deadly Sins Of Hiring

HR Daily Advisor has published an interesting list called the nine deadly sins of hiring. The sins are: 1) failing to plan before hiring, including failing to have in place an accurate job description for the open position; 2) using a poorly designed application that asks illegal or inappropriate questions; 3) failure to retain applications for proper periods of time; 4) allowing untrained supervisors to conduct interviews; 5) failing to ask about noncompete agreements and restrictive covenants; 6) not doing reference and application checks; 7) using no offer letter or an inadequate one; 8) insufficient employee orientation; and 9) not getting help when needed.
