DENVER, Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Did you know that 46% of new hires totally fail within 18 months? Another 45% of new hires are only marginal to fair performers. That means that 81% of new hires are typically a disappointment to their employers in the first year on the job. Add to that the cost of a minimum wage bad-hire employee starts at $4,524.00.
Small companies can now hire the right person quickly and efficiently with a successful interview process proven by large companies and hospitals.
"If you hire clowns, you'll wind up with a circus," said Moulton, who has based his process on scientific behavioral research. Plus, he has added his special insights and knowledge to create Small Biz Hire Advantage, helping small businesses hire better employees and reduce turnover with proven processes, strategies, and how-to's that work.
"Whether you own or run a childcare center, long-term care, dental office, software, technology, or any other kind if small business - recently one childcare center owner who started using this approach, she told me, her last four hires were 'amazing,'" said Moulton, author of "The CEO's Advantage," seven keys for hiring extraordinary leaders.
"I've used these techniques since 1997 to help large companies and hospitals that want to make sure they are hiring employees that are like gold - but weren't sure what to do or where to start. Smaller businesses always wanted to hire me, but they couldn't afford me. Now they get access to my proven tools, worksheets, interview questions, and rating guides so they can hire the right person," said Moulton, president of Action Insight, the parent company of Small Biz Hire Advantage.
Moulton's proven interview process is based on research that combines competency-based and behavioral interview questions to create the best interviews. He improved on that methodology by including the secret on how to keep candidates honest.
"When you use an impartial rating system, you don't fall victim to your own personal prejudices or first impressions - which are usually wrong," he said.
