How did you recruit? Did you ask the right questions? Did you interview enough candidates to see who was clearly the right person or did you hire fast?
Then once you selected, how did you on-board?
Did you have a proper on-boarding or orientation or was it a “baptism by fire”?

- Fire them and
- Look at questions above in respect to your business.
