Payroll is often one of the largest line items on a company’s balance sheet. With it comes a significant expense that is oftentimes overlooked, namely the cost of employee turnover.
There are so many steps prior to bringing someone new into an organization. Here are a few typical ones.
• Needs analysis
• Development of job description
• Advertising/posting the position
• Receiving and initial screening of resumes
• Scheduling and conducting interviews
• Reference checks
• Making an offer
Budgeting the time to accomplish these tasks is an effort in itself and may take a manager away from equally important obligations. But what about the other costs, the financial ones? Employee turnover costs typically range anywhere from 16% to 30% of annual salary, depending on the position (Center for American Progress). Due to specialized training, certifications and a longer on-boarding process, the cost to replace a highly-trained staff member could exceed 200% of their compensation.
Numbers like these can really take a toll on the bottom line. That’s why it is critically important to hire right the first time and retain employees.
