Do you underestimate the value of your time?

"Time is Money."  

When recruiting staff, we factor in number of costs; advertising,interviews, training and induction, but how much is the time you spend on theinitial phases of recruitment costing you?
By the time you load ads on job boards or book them into newspapers,receive applications via email, read each application that comes through, thenreply to unsuccessful candidates before calling in those you have shortlisted,you are running up a large bill on your time. How much is your time worth?


E-recruitment is a booming industry with more and more businessesdiscovering its benefits; 
  • Saving time on processing applications
  • Easily filing candidates and application history
  • Building your employment brand through a professional applicationprocess
