What is to be gained by making false promises? Absolutely nothing!!
The point is simple…an organization makes a major mistake if during the hiring process a salary review is promised and then forgotten, benefits are misrepresented or a private office or a great work environment is falsely implied. Such misunderstandings can prove to be costly not just in terms of morale and turnover.
Recent court battles have made it easier for employees to win damage awards from employers who can’t or won’t deliver on the job picture that the company described. As a result, employers are more carefully making commitments and promises.
