Quality is a value we live every day. Fortsmith Snelling.
There’s a certain amount of hope and trust involved every time you bring a new hire on board. You hope you’ve hired the right candidate; trust that the chosen individual will be up to the demands of the job. Sometimes things work out great! Those times they don’t, companies pay—big time.
A study by the Center for American Progress found that the typical cost associated with hiring and training new employees is 20% to 21% of an employee’s salary. Complex jobs and those that require higher levels of education have much greater turnover costs—up to 213% of the individual’s salary. Other research reveals that 31% of new hires quit within just 6 months! According to the Department of Labor, today the average tenure of an employee in the U.S. is a brief 1 & half years.
