A faulty hiring process is like big-city transportation planning.
If you leave it alone, it will slowly eat away at your quality of life.
Unfixed and poorly maintained transportation systems make cities unlivable for many people. Streets clog. Red lights aren’t timed. Buses don’t come or are overcrowded when they do. Eventually, people start to move out just to breathe.
A faulty hiring process does the same thing to a business. It degrades your brand. It chips away at morale. It turns away good candidates. Eventually, your best employees start resigning.
