Train My Newbie

Posted by Marcel Donnelly on Jun 26, 2019 5:51:00 PM

Hiring a new employee is a large investment by the business. Time spent reading resumes, recruiting agency fees, time spent interviewing, putting together contracts and officially signing off. As a business owner, you are already spending time and money before you have even hired a new employee.

Once you’ve made the decision, all new recruit needs training. According to a number of available stats online, training a new recruit will cost the business approximately 38% of the annual salary.

So, on top of the cost of getting the new recruit into your business, you are then spending the equivalent of approximately 38% of their annual salary in time training costs. You may think that because your other employees are training your new employee, you’re in the clear. However, even having your other employees spend their time giving advice, training or explaining processes eats into your pocket.


At $100,000 salary, about $38,000 will be assigned to training costs. That’s before your employee has even made you any profit!

This is daunting for any business owner.
