What’s the cost to recruit the top talent in my business?

At Visionary we thrive on recruiting the best people! We know the elements that go into finding the right candidate and the onboarding process. But have you as a business ever sat down and worked out the true cost in time it takes to recruit your employees? It’s not just about filling a vacancy – it’s about finding the right fit for your company to help you reach your business goals.

Your standard recruitment process might look something like this:

  • Place an advert on various job boards
  • Job fair fees and giveaways to create brand awareness
  • Encourage and promote your refer a friend scheme (link)
  • Read through CV’s received for the position
  • Make a shortlist and a long list of candidates
  • Interview candidates
  • Conduct appropriate assessments and references
  • Offer the job position to the most successful candidate
  • Set up the onboarding process for your new recruit
  • Train your new employee

If you are a small business, and already have the responsibility of everything else, this can be an arduous task.

When working out the cost of recruitment, it’s not a simple as just working out the salary cost, you need to factor in your time lost on your business by undertaking all these tasks.  You should also factor in the cost of lost output while a replacement employee gets up to speed and the logistical cost of recruiting and absorbing a new worker. Post covid this has become even more important as businesses struggle to find the right blend of quality and flexibility.

If everything doesn’t go to plan with your process and your new employee doesn’t work out, then its back to square one with your time and expenses. This can impact productivity and team morale and put projects on hold. The impact of a flawed recruitment process can have a profound effect on your business.
