The Hidden Costs of Hiring

Posted by Shaun Androff on Feb 3, 2016 8:30:00 AM

We recently sat down with the CEO of an insurance firm who was struggling to fill a key sales position. The spot had been empty for three months and she was ready to bring on a recruiting partner to help fill the role. By asking a few questions, we realized that the empty position was draining her company of thousands of dollars each month. No one had realized it because her team was juggling more work and overflowing to-do lists due to the empty position. The hidden costs of hiring were damaging her business.

Some costs related to expanding your staff are easy to track, such as the price of advertising, background checks and new equipment. Others require a bit of digging to reveal, but are still relatively straightforward to calculate, such as the value of a hiring manager's time spent writing job descriptions and interviewing. So what are the hidden costs — the sneaky, silent items that drain value from businesses, often without their even knowing? Keep your eye out for these stealthy wealth eaters.

7 Advantages To Using A Recruitment Firm

Posted by Andy Dunscombe on Sep 2, 2015 10:32:00 AM

Finding a valuable employee can be a time-consuming process. There is a job description to write, resumes to review, schedules to arrange, and interviews to conduct. This whole process takes time, and, as the saying goes, time is money. Your money. An easier option than taking this whole process upon yourself is to hand over the reigns to a recruitment firm for your staffing needs.

Top 5 Ways to Speed-Up Your Hiring Process

Posted by Shaun Androff on Apr 22, 2015 10:29:00 AM

Are you hiring like a snail? Does it take your company forever to make a final decision on a candidate? Sure, you want to learn the most you can about an applicant, but putting them through a hiring process that involves multiple phone screens, an in-person interview with Human Resources, a second round interview with a Hiring Manager, a third round interview with a panel of executives, a personality profile, the Wonderlic test, and then a professional case study to top it all off, is overkill.

Hiring Heats Up In January

Posted by Andy Dunscombe on Jan 13, 2015 2:19:00 PM

We are now entering our second full week of 2015, and thus the second week of reminding myself not to write 2014 on any important documents (so far I'm 0 for 1, but I'm sure the HOA will try to cash my check regardless). Based on our experience, this is the time of year when hiring really heats up. This is due to many factors, including people returning to work from holiday vacations and the start of new initiatives for the coming year.

Hiring Managers: Need More Than a Perfect Resume and Interview?

Posted by Bill Fries on Oct 21, 2013 8:27:00 AM

Have you ever met with a candidate who had the perfect resume, excellent experience, perfectly-matched skills and said all of the right things in the interview but your gut still said “don’t hire them?” Recently, I was part of a team working on a high-level executive search.   We had hundreds of candidates interested in the position but only a few met our hiring criteria.   One candidate in particular looked perfect.  The resume was a model which could have been used as our job description. In a panel-style interview, this candidate was poised, provided thoughtful answers with brevity and clarity and was completely comfortable with their surroundings.  Not a single bead of sweat rolled down their face as they zapped every tough question from the committee of 7. A presentation followed.  One of the best we’ve seen.  A perfect performance.
