If you want to make your people a real priority, trust in the experience and knowledge of Red Hot Go and get on with it with confidence.

According to Investopedia, the time and cost involved in employing a new staff member, training them and the reduced business productivity until they’re up to speed is really significant; to the tune of between one and a half to three times the salary of the employee. Not to mention that it takes, on average, five months for a new employee to hit 100 per cent productivity.

These sorts of numbers don’t even take into account the loss of business history and knowledge, change in workplace culture and dynamics and the general unrest that can result from staff turnover.

The best defence against these situations is, of course, a good attack that involves thorough, well-researched HR tactics that engage, continually educate and empower your current employees.
