Where is all of the sales talent? Companies need a pipeline of qualified candidates. Most of our clients tell us that they are posting jobs and advertising like crazy, but aren’t receiving the quantity or quality of sales candidates they were hoping for. One of the most common reasons why sales management and HR professionals have a difficult time hiring sales reps is simply because they ran out of network.

In the SaaS world, metrics can be finicky beasts. What works at LinkedIn, Salesforce, Twilio, or Zendesk might not be transferable from one to the other, let alone work for you. Questions around “how can I benchmark myself?” make leading an Account Executive group all the more challenging. We just published our 2017 SaaS AE Metrics & Compensation Report where we analyze the biggest shifts in recent years and provide core metrics to measure Account Executive teams.

The best companies understand that you can have an amazing product, a fertile market, and a catchy slogan, but if you don’t have the right people on your team, success will be a constant uphill battle. It makes sense: if your staff members are enthusiastic and skilled, not only are they great at their jobs, but they’re also the kind of people who will always be thinking of ways to make the company even better at what it does.

More often than not, companies will make a “bad hire” that can lead to a haunting experience, leaving both parties with a bad taste. What was first thought to be a good idea, can quickly turn sour and eventually dissolve, resulting in starting from scratch as you look to hire again. Yes, bad hires happen sometimes and it’s not to say it is any one person’s fault, but there are ways to prevent it from becoming routine. Your sales team is critical to your company’s growth and sustainability. Hiring salespeople is not something you want to leave to chance.
