Davidisms - The Only Thing Worse Than Making a Bad Hire is Keeping One

Nobody’s perfect. Neither bosses nor their employees. And sometimes wise bosses make poor hiring decisions.


So what should be done when you make a hiring mistake? If you can redeem the person, try! That’s always the best outcome.


But if not, cut your losses and let the person go. If you don’t, you’ll likely pay for it later.


Scripture says it this way: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Proverbs 14:12). Hiring and keeping a bad apple can infect the entire team. It’s a way of “death.”


When you let a person go, it often proves to be what’s best for them. They’re given an opportunity to do something new for which they’re better suited. And they get a fresh start. A clean slate. A new beginning.


Wise, experienced leaders have practiced this truth: The only thing worse than making a bad hire is keeping one.
