Many employers hire too quickly and keep subpar employees on their team for far too long. Hiring the wrong people for a position and then keeping them around for longer than they are needed can hurt the performance of a business as well as other employees who suffer due to poor work morale. Flipping this around and hiring slow, but firing fast can ensure a company's success, but how?
