Have You Ever Been Affected by a Hiring Mistake?

If so, then you know the consequences are damaging and far-reaching.

Analysts have determined that wrong hires can cost 15 times their base salaries.*

This means a $100,000 position filled with the wrong employee can end up costing your company $1.5 million.

Acquisition Intelligence has created a unique, human-driven methodology that acquires the intelligence necessary for companies to make informed and validated hiring decisions.

Applying over two decades of recruiting expertise and hiring successes, we conduct extensive, highly customized interviews with credible and relevant individuals who know the prospective hire best.

Investing in this intelligence to determine whether a prospective hire is who you think they are is as essential to a hiring process as conducting the interview.

Cutting corners, or delegating this initiative to someone lacking the requisite qualifications, is flirting with disaster.
