Cost Per Hire Calculator

How much does it really cost to hire someone? Many organizations consider the cost of advertisements, materials and salaries of recruiters, but often overlook the other factors that inflate the true cost to hire an employee. The Cost Per Hire Calculator gives you a bottom line assessment of what it costs to hire an employee - one that includes both hard and soft costs, as well as apparent and hidden costs.
