We’re sure you already know about the aggravation, but have you ever thought about the true cost of the new employee who works a day or two and then disappears? Maybe they never shows up or gets hurt on the job.
The hassle and the cost to find and add a new employee to your payroll, then carry the cost and risk of an injury or unemployment is staggering, especially when you consider that cost as a percent of payroll involved.
We all accrue “burden” to cover these costs. We spread that “burden” across the entire workforce. Longer-term employees generally generate enough to cover themselves plus the new hires, because the new hire certainly didn’t generate enough to do that.
What if you could carve out these costlier new hires? – pay a reasonable burden on them and accrue your normal burden on the longer-term employees.
Odds are, you’d save a good bit of money.
That’s why payrolling or temp-to-perm staffing arrangements make so much sense and no one is better at it than we are.
