  • 6. Just hiring 9 people Chemistry Recruitment could save our clients £5,000,000!
    • Independent research suggests that the cost of getting hires wrong is calculated as 14.6x their salary and that 75% of hires are mis-hires
    • Even a conservative estimate* means therefore that the cost of mis-hiring sales people in most businesses may be up to £40m every year
    • This cost is seen through average or poor performance, the costs of re-hiring and re-training, management time to manage poor or average performance etc.
    • We have encountered this level of wastage in every organisation we have worked with
    *9 hires at £50k salary per person
    • The Chemistry approach creates a process where at least 75% of hires are accurate, so only 25% are mis-hires
    • This could represent a saving in this project of at least £5,000,000*
