Better Candidates Deliver Lasting Benefits
May 8th, 2017
Ask any HR professional, high employee turnover hurts business. It has a direct and negative impact on revenue, profitability, delivery of goods and services, recruiting, training, and morale—the list goes on with time and revenue loss valued at thousands of dollars per employee. While there may be some debate regarding the best way to retain talent, there is no doubt that hiring the right people from the start is the single most effective way to reduce turnover.
Hiring Managers know that to select the best candidate, you must have a slate of talented applicants who meet your competency requirements. Rather than post and pray or the see-what-sticks approach, JCSI’s unique and proven recruitment model delivers better applicants—as this client testimonial shows. By identifying passive candidates who meet your ideal profile and attracting them to your opportunity, JCSI delivers people with the skills and temperament you need to become lasting members of your team.
To affirm that better candidates stay longer, JCSI conducted a review of retention rates for some of its clients with high-volume hiring achievement. These hires were achieved for clients seeking large numbers of employees across the U.S. in sales, engineering, and consultant roles at various experience levels. The results showed 67 percent of the JCSI hires were still employed with our clients—some going back eight years. One client who hired more than 150 engineers from JCSI over the last several years had a retention rate of 97 percent!
No doubt, the best offense to reducing your employee turnover rate is to hire the right people for the job. In addition to finding those candidates for you, JCSI offers recruitment consulting services to support your entire recruitment process including interviewing and selection guidance, and customized tools such as candidate-comparison reports and salary surveys.
