The best way to keep high-level new hires around is to give them an accurate picture of what their jobs entail before they start work.

Research from Washington-based Recruiting Roundtable found that newly hired director-level employees—or their organizations—too often regret their choices and quickly part company.

Advice: (1) Don’t rely on candidates’ descriptions of their abilities. Instead, require applicants to demonstrate their talents. (2) Provide the candidate with thorough information about the job—and be honest. About 40% of the new hires in the study said they received inaccurate information about their positions during interviews.
