We are pleased to build on our expertise of the full end to end recruitment process that most clients have enjoyed over the years with some additional service offerings and resources. It has become apparent that for some smaller organisations the cost of engaging professional recruitment services is not a viable option in these tougher economic times. But the cost of trying to undertake the full recruitment process themselves is high, both in time commitments and the risk of making a poor hiring decision.

To understand the true cost potentially involved of making the wrong hiring decision, we will be soon uploading a calculator to break down all the components, both direct costs and indirect impacts that will ultimately cost a lot more than doing it right the first time. This does not take into account the reality your pool of candidates from which you are selecting your next hire is most probably only the actively looking candidates, which may not be the best for your business. We know there is a difference between talent pools and the typical candidate puddle many resource are sourced from. One is narrow and deep with quality, the other broad and shallow. Are you getting the best selection of candidates or just those actively looking this week who respond to an online ad? Is this online ad even attracting the best of the active candidates?

Check back for a working editable version of the calculator, but in the meantime you might like to review this PDF with a sample cost breakdown – Cost of Recruiting Calculator PDF

If you would like to find the happy medium of engaging in professional recruitment services, but only for the stages of the recruitment life-cycle you need help with, you might like to consider our Fee for Service model – also known as Unbundled Recruitment.

Please check back often as well add further services and resources. In the interim, please get in touch to see how, where or when we can assist you in Identifying, Sourcing and Attracting your next valued staff member.
