Did you know that hiring a full-time employee costs an average of $4700? Also, it can take up to 36-42 days to fill an average US location. Also, it takes about 12 weeks for a new hire to become fully productive on the job.
Along with these dismal numbers, consider another fact: About 40% of new employees quit within six months. That’s about the time it takes for an organization to recoup the money spent on a new hire.
Do you have the time, money and resources to carry out this plan? Nobody does!
Today, every growing organization’s business continuity plan includes staffing solutions to address this pain point. Business success depends on an agile workforce. Finding skilled professionals can be the most effective way to fill talent gaps and continue to deliver learning projects across your organization.
Augmentation and outsourcing have proven beneficial during this time of a hiring freeze, tight budgets, and quiet layoffs. Many industries have embraced talent outsourcing since the early 1990s, but the two concepts have really gained momentum over the past decade. With unstable economies and an increased emphasis on ROI, it’s safe to assume that augmentation and outsourcing are here to stay.
Our eBook—The Ultimate Guide to L&D Staff Augmentation—is a must-have resource for any learning organization and shows you exactly what this year can be your great learning and development opportunity. The key topics included in the ebook are:
