On a few occasions, someone may make it through the hiring process with flying colors; great references, experience, excitement, the right fit. However, there may be occasions where you make a hire that you may regret.
It is important in the pre-start phase to get the candidates involved in activities to determine if they will fit in your unique business culture. Pre-hire orientation, activities and conversations can enable you to see how good a fit a candidate is before they sign on the dotted line.
Be mindful that you may have to make tough calls during the probationary period if someone does make it through the hiring process, but you need to be swift and decisive to ensure fit within the first few days someone is on the job.
