In the fast-paced world of recruitment, Local Workforce Hire emerges as a beacon of efficiency and client-centric practices. Our ethos revolves around relentless waste reduction, unwavering efficiency, and a commitment to passing on the accrued value directly to our clients.

It’s a departure from the norm, challenging the prevalent practice of charging a percentage of the selected candidate’s salary. The question that begs consideration is simple yet profound: Does this approach genuinely reflect the value of the service provided, or does it pave the way for a recruitment rip-off, burdening businesses financially?

Here’s our question to you: “Should the cost of recruitment be intrinsically tied to the compensation of the chosen candidate?”

The Unfair Practice of Salary-Percentage Fees

Analysing the current landscape of recruitment

In the current recruitment landscape, many agencies have adopted the model of charging a percentage of the hired candidate’s salary. While this may be considered conventional today, it still poses a significant ethical dilemma. It is important to call into question why the financial burden on businesses should be proportionate to the compensation of the selected talent. Does this model authentically represent the value of the service provided, or does it inadvertently lead to an unjust recruitment rip-off?

Benefits of Using Fixed Fee Recruitment

At Local Workforce Hire, our CEO vehemently rejects the notion that the cost of recruitment should be tethered to a percentage of the candidate’s salary. Our disruptive model is rooted in Lean/Agile principles, as well as an unwavering commitment to relentless cost reduction and transparently passing on the benefits to our clients. It’s not about compromising quality for cost; it’s about fundamentally altering the paradigm and ensuring that businesses are not penalised for seeking the best talent. Our company offers fixed fees and client-centric practices, ensuring your organisation can maximise its benefits from our partnership.

  • Transparent Cost Structure: Our fixed fee of $5,000 stands in stark contrast to the unpredictable and potentially escalating costs associated with percentage-based charges. We champion transparency, allowing businesses to budget effectively without hidden surprises.
  • Consistent Service Value: Regardless of the salary of the selected candidate, Local Workforce Hire guarantees a consistent and exceptional level of service value. Our commitment to excellence is unwavering, irrespective of the remuneration of the talent being recruited.
  • Ethical Cost Management: Our Lean/Agile principles enable us to minimise internal costs without compromising the quality of service. Instead of pocketing the savings, we pass them directly to our clients, aligning our incentives with client success rather than financial gain.
