What is the real cost of recruitment?

When business owners think of the ‘real cost of recruitment’ they often think of agency fees, advertising costs and ‘in house’ costs like salaries. Over obsession with these costs can mean that we slow down, penny pinch or avoid recruiting altogether. We forget that the real quantifiable cost is different and far more expensive.

I call these the ‘hidden costs of recruitment’ and every business needs to be aware of them.
They include, the loss of productivity and disruption to business operation, cost of temporary cover, the negative effect on team morale as additional duties are shared amongst an already stretched team and, inevitably, the pressure on those directly involved in the hiring process to get someone, maybe just anyone in place.

If you have ever calculated these ‘hidden costs’ accurately you will know just how significant they are.

So what can you do about it?

One solution would be to engage with us; our proactive approach to source and select the very best UK talent within a hidden and often overlooked engineering and technical jobseeker community has the potential to solve your recruitment needs removing the danger of those hidden costs.
