Cut the cost of hiring employees

Adecco has helped thousands of companies lower staffing cost. See how we've done it, and how you can do it too.

Your workforce is the biggest factor in your success. Unfortunately, it is also probably the biggest item on your budget. Find out how you can keep these costs under control with our infographic.

Find out how to cut the cost of hiring employees with these staffing tips.

What is the real cost of hiring employees?

Recruiting expenses alone – advertising, salaries paid to internal staff to conducting interviews and review resumes, drug screens, background checks, employee assessments – can quickly add up to thousands of dollars per hire. In fact, it can cost about $3,500 to fill a minimum-wage position.

What are other staffing expenses to keep in mind?

In addition to recruiting costs, there are expenses associated with managing your team of existing employees. For example, companies spend an average of more than $1,200 annually on training costs alone.

Additionally, benefits can severely hamper your budget, rogue spending can become an issue, and complying with new laws and regulations like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act can be a daunting task.

To help curb these costs and headaches, Adecco offers free online skills training to all associates. This value-added service comes standard with our staffing solutions, allowing our associates to strengthen their skills without costing you a dime. In addition to saving you money, you’ll also benefit from a more skilled, productive and knowledgeable workforce.

Adecco also offers a Workforce Readiness Certification Program – the first of its kind in the staffing industry. Through this program, we offer standardized training courses and curricula based on industry best practices and our experiences working with Fortune 500 companies. After completing the courses, associates must pass an in-depth assessment with a score of at least 70 percent. This program gives associates access to valuable vocational training while giving our clients peace of mind that our candidates are ready to work.
