Cost Breakdown

62% Recommendations
39% Government sites
To recruit, you must have a presence on:

Paid or sponsored ads, human time, and visibility on these websites are essential… but also expensive!

Indirect costs of a high turnover rate:

A regular lack of organization in teams, a loss of productivity, recruiting costs, and costly and hard to organize training sessions.
Why not capitalize on your in-house resources?

Even though 75% of organizations claim to offer career progression opportunities, 50% of works don’t think they have any.
Organizations can see nearly 50% of their workforce change over 3 years.
