Average Sourcing Cost per Hire


Measures the average cost associated with sourcing (finding and attracting) each new hire. Recruiting costs can vary based on the methods used. This metric helps organizations understand which methods are most cost-effective and how much they are investing to attract talent.


Total Sourcing Costs / Total Number of Hires


If total sourcing costs for a year are $40,000 and the company hired 80 new employees, the Average Sourcing Cost per Hire would be $500.
