Some interesting data on retention of new hires in this survey by Korn Ferry. Interesting, more than half of the 1,800 survey respondents perceived that 10-25% of new hires leave within 6 months. Really?!
“With low unemployment rates and increased need for specialized talent, keeping new hires is a critical issue,” said Bill Gilbert, president, North America, Korn Ferry Futurestep. “It’s incumbent upon recruiters and hiring managers to paint a clear picture of what will be expected of the candidate in his or her new role, and make sure promises of resources, job structure and reporting relationships are fulfilled.”
