Eliminate Overhead Costs With KB Staffing

As a Central Florida business owner, there’s a good chance you’ve considered hiring an extra employee to help with the growing workload. While having additional hands on deck can certainly benefit just about any company, it’s important to bear in mind the costs that are associated with hiring and keeping an employee.

The most obvious expenditure is salary, but the financial implications of hiring extend far beyond that surface number. From administrative costs to healthcare benefits and paid time off, it can sometimes be tough to determine the true cost of adding an employee to the payroll.

That’s the bad news. The good news? At KB Staffing, we can help you slash those overhead costs and streamline your expenditures. Here’s how.

The Real Cost of Hiring

When you’re focused on growing your team, you’re likely more than well aware that a new team member will bring with them so much more than just expertise — in a good and bad way.

From medical and dental insurance to retirement savings plans and other employee benefits, these all cause the cost of hiring to creep up.

There’s also the chance that your new employee might not work out, in which case, separation costs, from severance pay to new hiring resources, will also climb quickly. 

Sick Days and Other Hidden Costs

Of course, the expenses don’t stop there. A full-time employee is going to get sick or injured – this is almost a given. They’ll need paid time off, or, in some cases, worker’s compensation.

Overall, the cost of employing an extra setting hands goes well beyond the dollar amount you pay per hour or year. The most conservative estimates say that you should plan on paying 1.25 to 1.4 times the base salary range per hire for benefits alone. 

So if you’re hiring someone at $50,000 per year, you’re really paying closer to $70,000, and that’s before things like taxes, recruiting expenses, office space, and training costs kick in.
