Singapore bosses think 50% of employees are 'bad hires': survey

 

While top talents are a measly 10-30%.

 

According to a survey by RecruitPlus, 99% of the 4,000 employers who answered felt that their organization carry certain percentage of bad hires, from 10% to a whopping 50%.

 

Conversely, only 64% of the same respondents felt that their companies have Super Performers, ranging from 10% to 30% of their workforce. This group of individuals usually comes from 1) referrals, 2) recruitment agencies & 3) job boards.

 

All respondents believe the Super Performers are capable of handling the job of 2 to 5 bad hires and will not mind paying them 10% to 30% more salary vis-

There's only limited vacancy to be boss pets.. In a dept of 10 people, only a handful, say 2 or 3, may go lunch/karoke with the boss. The rest who don't are consider bad hire.. So there about 50% or more..

Your colleague has people skills.

He can get things done (by others) despite being rather inept himself.

He also gets along well with superiors.

This type of talent is management material. [laugh]

50% of companies would not pay more for good hires.

People diam diam doesnt mean people wouldnt think for their future.

 

People dont work hard & smart doest mean they are not capable.

When we were students, you think everyone in the class is top student?(Unless you come from a top school lah). Let's say on average. Students in the class got good students, got slow learning students, got average students and top students. Nobody is perfect mah.

 

Bosses are also not perfect beings what. Do you get 100% perfectly good bosses?

It's the job of a boss to motivate and to lead. I think this survey is flawed. It only serves to drive the wrong impression that employees are to blame for poor performance. I believe every employee is good at something. It's only how one is able to fit the persons interests and capabilities to the job. It's also how one motivates and leads the employee. How many super performers are there? Even if he/she can do the job of 4 or 5, how long can this super performer keep this up? Would this super performer need to work 12 hours a day?
