All the latest insights on sales and sales hiring

A colleague pointed me to a great Seth Godin post this morning on hiring (thanks G):

“It only takes 10% as much effort to hire someone in the bottom 90% of the class. And it takes the other 90% to find and cajole and retain the top 10%.”

Many companies are lackadaisical about hiring, so it is no wonder that such a high number of reps across the industry are missing targets and the average sales force lives with high turnover rates. Economies like ours will only make things worse.

His full article is here…The 90/10 rule of marketing a job.

To your success!
