Calculate how much a bad hire can cost your organization

Employee turnover. Lost work days. Accidents. Inefficiency. These are just a few of the ways a bad hire can damage your bottom line. The calculator below can help you estimate the costs your company incurs for making a bad hire.

This bad hire calculator accounts for the cost of advertising the position, HR staffing costs, interviewing time and salary plus any relocation and training costs.
