Talent acquisition in the renewable energy sector is not a one-time event, it is a continued relationship.
If you are ready to take the next step, Whitham Group is ready to go to work for you.

Hiring The Right Renewable Energy Person

Hiring talent is something that affects every business and every level of management. The ability to recruit great talent is key to the ultimate success, or failure, of a business. However, there are certain roles that can be particularly difficult to fill. In these scenarios, there are times when it can be incredibly valuable for an organization to partner with an outside search firm.

The Harvard Business Review has stated that over 80% of employee turnover can be attributed to poor hiring choices.  Similar research conducted by the US Department of Labor states that the price of a bad hire is 30% of the employee’s first-year earnings at a minimum. As the position becomes more impactful to the business, this number increases exponentially.

Our own research estimates the true long term cost of a bad hire to be $211,000 based on a $95,000 salary.  Most companies would agree that given these numbers they may want to think twice about their own hiring practices. Taking steps to avoid making costly hiring mistakes may begin with internal processes but it also may result in consideration of hiring a professional search firm.
