Understanding the Real Costs of Recruitment and How Pathway Group Can Help

At Pathway Group, we recognize the challenges and expenses associated with recruiting new employees, especially in the aerospace industry. According to a recent SHRM article, the average cost per hire is nearly $4,700, but total expenses can be three to four times the position’s salary. These costs include hard expenses like advertising, as well as soft costs such as the time managers spend interviewing candidates, productivity losses, and more.

Breakdown of Recruitment Costs:

  1. Advertising and Job Boards: Promoting job openings through various channels can be expensive.
  2. Recruitment Agency Fees: These can be a significant part of the budget if external agencies are used.
  3. Internal Hiring Costs: Time and resources spent by internal HR and hiring managers.
  4. Onboarding and Training: These processes require both time and money to integrate new hires effectively.
  5. Productivity Losses: Time taken to fill positions can lead to reduced productivity and operational efficiency.
