The Cost of Recruitment – Effective Hiring

Bringing a new person into you business is a major investment and also a risk. If you make the wrong decision by trying to shortcut the process to save on time and money you are likely to end up with the wrong person. Industry research shows that making the wrong appointment historically leads to Lack of Productivity, Loss of Business, Management downtime and Loss of morale for other staff.

The Chart below highlights the ideal recruitment process and costs associated to your business to complete the process independently and effectively hire staff.
