Quality of Hire Means Something, Here’s Why

offboardingBy Maren Hogan, Founder and CEO of Red Branch Media

Quality of Hire didn’t use to be a recruiting measurement. Far from it! Even just ten years ago, the goal for recruiters and even their emerging brethren was to make sure that people met the job requirements.
