The high cost of turnover

The most important investment you can make for your business is hiring the right people. A single bad hire can corrode team morale and accelerate employee turnover.

Plus, studies show the average cost to replace just one employee can be financially burdensome:

  • The cost to replace a $10/hour retail worker would be $3,328.
  • The cost to replace a $40k manager would be $8,000.
  • The cost to replace a $100k CFO would be $213,000.

Do you really have the time to find the right person?

Do-it-yourself hiring adds extra strain to your everyday obligations all while continuing to manage your “day job”, including:

  • Writing job descriptions
  • Managing job postings
  • Sifting through piles of applicants and resumes
  • Scheduling & conducting interviews
  • Background checks & drug testing
