According to recent statistics, 74% of businesses under perform with their recruitment strategies.

With recruitment costs soaring higher than ever, with the average recruitment fee in the UK currently £7,600.00 and in the United States $11,200. This is just the cost of the recruitment fee, not the overall hiring cost, therefore getting this right is now business critical.

Many businesses simply do not have a recruitment strategy to follow, this has repercussions when they get it wrong. Some businesses do not even know where to start with their recruitment and others do not know what good and bad practice looks like.

Approximately 25% of people recruited into a business fail to become an impactful hire within the first 12 months of their employment, with the risks increasing to 40% during the first 18 months of employment. These are referred to as ‘bad hires’ and are costing businesses an average of the £103,000 per person.

Ineffective recruitment not only costs businesses time and money but it also comes with indirect repercussions that effect team productivity, business reputation, wasted management time and indirect staff turnover.
