Crunching the numbers, you can quickly see that companies need a better way to cut costs associated with traditional hiring. Another survey, this time by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), shows the cost-per-hire for mid-size companies (those with over 1,000 employees) is $4,285.
An organization that size should expect to hire over 550 people every year. That is around $2.4 million annually on recruiting alone. There’s got to be a better way to find the best talent.
