The cost of hiring a new employee is significant in both time and money.

To address these issues, many companies are trying “new” strategies for attracting and retaining employees or contracting with head-hunting firms. However, many of these approaches cost more and take more of your precious time, often with poor results.

Some managers and organizations are far more successful at recruiting than others.
