Client: Ugh, it seems like everybody I hire just disappears when it’s time to actually get to work.
Ann: (attempting humor) Well, it is almost Halloween, maybe they’re getting really method about their ghost costume.
Client: Hmm… stick to your day job, which by the way, I’m not even sure background checks are worth doing if my new hires don’t even bother showing up.
Ann: Ohhhh yes they are!
Client: Alright, you may not be a comedian, but you are the best damn P.I. I know. Tell me what you’ve got.
Ann *sipping her fourth cup of coffee*: Ok so here’s the deal…
Is the labor shortage of 2021 driving employers toward that dark, dangerous hallway of negligent hiring?
An HR Director told me last week:
I hire 10 people
8 of them show up for training
6 of them show up for the first day of work
2 of them quit halfway through their shift
2 of them don’t come back the next day
I’m left with 2 employees.
