Hiring a new employee? Get ready to pay the price. A report published by the Center for American Progress shows that companies typically spend up to one-fifth of an employee’s salary to find a replacement. These costs can include lost productivity, training, recruiting, background checks, overtime for workers picking up the slack – the list goes on and on.
In addition to the frustration and time suck of sifting through countless resumes and meeting with candidates, you want to be sure you make the right hiring decision so that you don’t have to go through the whole process again. That’s why working with a recruiter is so valuable.
We narrow down the list of candidates so that you only meet the cream of the crop. This fills your vacant position faster and reduces turnover by getting the right person in the door.
A couple of things to look for if you’re in the market for a recruiter:
– Experience: Simply put, the more years they’ve got under their belt, the better candidate pool they’ll be able to round up.
– Industry expertise: You will have better luck nailing down the right candidate if the recruiter is specialized in your field.
– Success stories: You want to know the recruiter is effective and can show the results to back up their claims.
