Strategies to reduce your Cost-Per-Hire

When it comes to finding the right IT talent, there is a lot of competition in the market. In order to get the best IT candidate, you will have to spend more on compensation and benefits.

Constantly making changes to your requirements can increase your cost-per-hire and become an impediment in your search.

Keep the “career” section of the website update and ensure that the candidates are able to contact you quickly. You can also use your company Facebook page or Twitter handle to announce a job opportunity.

4. Streamline the Process

If your potential candidates have to wait for long, they will lose interest in the job and move to other businesses. And, you may have to begin the recruitment process right from the start. So, streamline the process and reduce the decision time. If the candidate seems right for the job, do not hesitate in making a contingent offer.

5. Hire a Reputed IT Staffing Firm
