When you hire bad sales reps, you’re not just wasting time and annoying your other sales people; you’re costing the company significant amounts of money. In fact, the cost of hiring a sales person who doesn’t work out can cost six to 10 times the sales person’s base salary.
Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to dodge bad sales reps. A worrying 40% of sales reps in North America will miss quota and 22% are untrainable. Only 10% will actually provide a significant return on investment.
That’s where sales and marketing recruitment agencies come in. Sales recruitment firms have an expansive range of contacts in their field of specialty or industry that they can call on to find the best potential sales people for your business and corporate culture.
Sales and marketing recruitment agencies take the responsibility of hiring sales reps out of your hands. You probably won’t even have to train your reps, since agencies often provide onboarding and training services as part of the package.
They also handpick your sales people out of a large pool of applicants before sending them over to you, so you’ll be able to focus on your sales business rather than endless application emails and tedious interviews.
Sales and marketing recruitment agencies find sales people for hire that will work hard and fit in at your company. This takes the weight of a hiring mistake off your department and ensures that you’ll only get quality candidates.
With a recruitment firm by your side, you’ll be able to reduce turnover and employ individuals who actually provide a return on investment. You’ll also save yourself hours of tedious paperwork and email sorting. Contact a firm today to bring your sales to the next level.
