The Economic Advantage of Temporary Hiring Services Over In-House Recruitment

April 26, 2024

In today’s competitive business environment, efficiency in hiring is more crucial than ever. But did you know that the traditional process of hiring a single employee can be surprisingly costly and time-consuming? At Percipio Workforce Solutions, we understand that every dollar and every hour counts, and we’re here to show you a better way.

 Hiring a new employee involves several stages—each consuming valuable resources. Consider the typical costs associated with hiring one employee:

1. Posting Job: Crafting and posting a job description might seem simple, but it costs about $60 and takes up valuable HR time.

2. Review of Applications: Sorting through an average of 100 applications costs around $150 in HR labor.

3. Prescreening Candidates: Verifying applicants’ credentials takes time and adds another $150 to the cost.

4. Interview Preparations: Organizing and preparing for interviews costs $100.

5. Interviewing Candidates: The most intensive part of the process, interviewing candidates, not only costs $400 but also involves significant time investment.

6. Offer Screening & Vetting: Finalizing the hire with background checks and other screenings costs $150.

Overall, hiring just one employee can total over $1,000 and 29 hours of work—an enormous investment for any business.
