Why Companies Should Attend
The cost of hiring an employee is arguably one of the most expensive parts of running a business. While that may seem intimidating, people are the key enabler to business growth and performance, so hiring new employees is a critical business process.
- In a study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, companies with less than 500 employees spend an average of $7,645 for each new hire.
- Another study by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) states that the average cost to hire an employee is $4,129, taking around 42 days to fill a position.
- According to Glassdoor, the average company in the United States spends about $4,000 to hire a new employee, taking up to 52 days to fill a position.
With Superior Career Fairs, companies average 3+ hires per event, dramatically reducing their cost-per-hire. And companies significantly speed up the hiring process by starting it where it always ends up – face to face. Taking up to two months to fill a position can now be a thing of the past.
