Getting Sales Selection Right in 2016

Getting sales selection has never been more important! Here are a couple of statistics that show why:

  • According to Forbes, businesses in the U.S. spend close to $72 billion each year on recruiting services and products, yet 46 percent of new hires fail within the first 18 months of employment!
  • Our available research reveals that looking at all salespeople, there is an elite 6% that are top performers, another 20% that are good and 74% that are bad.


Unfortunately, when it comes to selecting sales hires who are in the elite (ideally) or good group and can succeed in this tougher selling environment, companies haven’t adjusted their sales recruiting practices. More costly hiring mistakes are being made today than ever before. Many companies have given up finding their next ‘sales superstar’, getting fooled by sales candidates in the interview process and wind up with someone in the ‘74%’ group described above. To get sales selection right requires a process that includes identifying, attracting, interviewing, hiring and onboarding high performing salespeople. And doing it all in a time and cost effective manner.
