The Challenge of Recruiting & Retaining Sales Talent

It takes 6 months for a sales rep to ramp up. 

And in another 6 months, they’ll probably leave. 

Why is it so hard to stop turnover in sales? And who can we blame?

Today, I’m speaking with Fazilat Nassiri, Director of Recruiting at Guild Education, about how we can address these retention problems. 

What we talked about:

  • Why turnover is so high in sales
  • Why meaning and belonging beats a paycheck
  • Why finding a “culture-add” is beats the cult-like “culture fit”
