  • Good People. Good Business.


    Employee turnover can be expensive. Time spent recruiting, interviewing and training a new hire adds up and can cost an employer as much as 150% of the employee's annual salary.

    Your Time Lost to Hire One Person

    Hiring costs both time and money. In fact, more than you may realize. Take a look at the time involved for you to hire just one new employee.

    CSP-post-on-job

    Post on Job Boards

    Write ad copy and post to one job board: 1 hour and 30 minutes. On average, 250 resumes are received for each corporate job opening. Many job postings will receive more, especially if you post across multiple job boards.


    CSP-reviewing-resumes

    Reviewing Resumes and Applications

    Recent reports found that recruiters spend only 6 seconds reviewing each resume. That's 25 minutes for the first 250, but if you're more generous, you could spend up to 5 minutes per resume - that's over 20 hours!


    CSP-prescreening

    Prescreening Candidates

    It can take up to 2 hours to prescreen eight candidates over the phone.


    CSP-interview-prep

    Interview Prep

    This includes scheduling interviews and preparing questions for six candidates. Plan on an average time of 1 hour and 15 minutes.


    CSP-interview-wrap

    Interviewing & Wrapping Up

    Activities include initial interview, testing, reference checks, final interviews, contacting other applicants, and making the employment offer which can add up to 7.5 hours.


    CSP-time-to-place

    Total Time to Place One Employee

    This can range from a minimum of 30 hours to over 100 hours per position.
