Recruitment costs

An Employee on $35,000 costs you over $17,750 (50% of their salary) if they leave within the first 12 months

Recruitment Costs – How is this made up??
  • Direct Recruitment costs amount to $8250 (advertising, average consultant fee of 15%, selection process, formal training/induction)
  • Indirect Recruitment costs come to $5900. (interviewing time, informal training by managers and peers, productivity until new employee reaches normal performance level after about 20 days).
  • If the employee leaves within the first 12 months, extra Recruitment costs amount to $3600 (payout based on four weeks’ pay, performance management activities, such as meetings).


Consider this also ‚ ¨ to recruit would take you on average 42 hours by the time you;

  • prepare the position description,
  • advertise the role,
  • sort through all the applications,
  • complete telephone interviews,
  • arrange and complete first interviews (with on average 8 people),
  • notify the unsuccessful candidate’s,
  • arrange final interviews,
  • test the candidates (role dependant),
  • hold the interviews and then reference checking.

On top of that is the employment Contract and all the new starter processes – Failure to get this right can amount to a BIG headache.

  • Do you really have the time and not to mention the money if you don’t get it right?

  • Do you really want to have an HR Headache if you miss an important step??
