A national home retail group is working with several agencies on standard ‘% of salary’ fee structures. They are finding it difficult to forecast accurate recruitment costs across a number of different roles.
Additionally the candidate advice from some agencies seems to be motivated by the opportunity to inflate their own commissions - not to help the company make the best decisions.
In consultation with C2 Recruitment they explained that their staff attrition was not high but with new stores opening throughout the UK they needed to achieve a number of outcomes:
- To be able to accurately forecast recruitment costs
- To develop a better relationship with a preferred supplier they could take advice from
- If possible to reduce recruitment costs
