Hiring Right and Fast

If you're trying to staff or re-staff your MR organization, time is money.

  • The sooner you hire a Sales Executive, the sooner your revenue and profits can grow.
  • And if you're looking to hire a Research Manager, the sooner you fill the position the sooner you can reallocate workloads and support additional business -- generating more profit.

Too often organizations focus upon the expenditures of hiring rather than the true cost of delayed hiring -- which is foregone profit or opportunity.

Example 1: Sales Executive - Growing the Topline

  • Consider an MR Account Executive with an annual quota of $1.2MM or $100K per month.
  • If the position remains unfilled for six months, the organization loses $330K in sales and $270K in profit given a traditional ramp-up period.
  • With a base salary of $120K and a 25% recruiting fee, the cost of hiring is $30K.

        Conclusion: It's a wise business decision to spend $30K to earn $270K.

Example 2: Research Manager - Supporting Clients
The impact of speedy hires is even more dramatic when the candidate "hits the ground running" requiring little time to meet their target workload.

  • In the example above, each month the Research Manager position remains unfilled costs the organization $26.7K.
  • Over the course of one year the organization would miss the opportunity to support $320K in additional business.

        Conclusion: Quickly locating and hiring the right person can relieve overworked professionals and support growth.
