5 ways to fight new-hire no-shows

It happens with maddening frequency: A promising applicant accepts an offer and then backs out at the last minute, or doesn't show up on Day 1. Mid-level sales, financial and IT workers are most likely to pull the stunt, according to a survey of 100 search firms by Kennedy Information.

To avoid being hit with this bait-and-switch move:

  1. Shorten the amount of time between job offer and starting date.
  2. Speed the evaluation process for certain jobs, such as entry-level positions, which have fewer criteria to measure.
  3. Negotiate the offer quickly; don't delay unnecessarily.
  4. Consider signing bonuses for particularly hard-to-fill positions.
  5. Hold off on announcing that the job is filled until the person actually begins work.
