#FindSuccess: Can you imagine taking a pay cut on your first day of work?

January 27, 2023

As sales plummeted in March, the company was forced to go through a firmwide salary reduction. The news of the pay cut was released on Chok-Him candidate’s first day of work.

Given his strong rapport with the candidate, Chok-Him advised the client to let him bring the unfortunate news to her. Although a difficult conversation, the candidate was glad Chok-Him took the initiative to let her know firsthand. While he could have avoided the responsibility of being the bearer of bad news, he didn’t, and instead took it head-on.

In the end, the candidate decided to stay on the job. This entire experience helped Chok-Him strengthen his relationship with both the candidate and client, as they really appreciated Chok-Him’s integrity and can-do attitude.

Human Resources, we have a problem: Your Time-to-Fill is longer than EVER.

47 days – that’s the time it takes for most businesses today to fill a job opening. Just think about that for a moment. It takes more time for businesses to make a single hire than it takes NASA to send astronauts 85 million km away to Mercury or for Hollywood to shoot an entire movie.
