Chicago, IL (June 14, 2006) — Denise Lubaway, VP of Client Services, was a featured guest speaker on the American Marketing Association’s (AMA) Internet radio program “Marketing Matters LIVE!” as well as the AMA’s on-demand Webcast in June. On both programs Lubaway talked about how marketing departments can increase hiring efficiency by test driving talent through a temp-to-perm solution. A recording of the live broadcast and Webcast can be found on the AMA Website, as well as wsradio.com andaquent.com.
Temp-to-perm is a fast-growing solution that more and more companies are adopting in order to “test-drive” talent and evaluate performance, productivity, and cultural fit before making a permanent and costly commitment. It’s a proven fact that 45% of employees who decide to voluntarily terminate their employment relationship decide to do so during the first 90 days. With employee turnover calculated at 150%–250% of salary, taking that risk is a costly endeavor.
“A bad hire can ruin the day not to mention be a costly mistake,” said Lubaway. “The resume looked good and the interview went well, but after about two months, or maybe even sooner, you realize it’s an ill-fated match for your company. A temp-to-perm model can help you mitigate your risk of hiring full-time employees that aren’t what you expected, saving you time and money.”
Denise Lubaway is the vice president of client services for Aquent Marketing Staffing. A veteran of business development, Denise manages all regional account directors, helping to continue to grow and cultivate client relationships.
