Working with an RSS partner: a cost or an investment?

When hiring new employees, finding the right match is crucial. The structural scarcity on the employment market is one reason

that talent -the right talent- will make the difference for a company. It is this talent that will have a measurable impact on your organisation’s results. For the selection and recruitment of talent, you cannot afford to rely on chance. The negative impact of a wrong hire on your company’s results is proof that you need a specialised partner for your RSS process: a partner who not only knows the Belgian employment market inside-out, but who is also aware of the local legislation, and who can provide insights into regional customs. Recruitment and selection is often perceived as a “cost”, and speed and efficiency are often the priority. However, we now understand that these are no longer the right criteria by which to judge the success of the recruitment and selection process. A study performed by Federgon, the Federation of HR service providers, in cooperation with the Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School, demonstrates that the cost of your recruitment and selection process should be assessed like any other investment your organisation makes. Consider the total cost of employees over the period that they are active in your company, and you will discover that the cost of R&S is only a fraction of your ‘Total Cost of Employership’. This means that retention becomes an important parameter as well. An optimal match between your organisation and the candidate will turn out to be the investment with the highest Return on Investment.
