In my previous blog post, I presented per-hour consulting as a way companies can reduce their search costs. So what in the world is targeted per-hour consulting? It’s exactly what it implies.
Hiring multiple positions throughout the year? Reduce your search costs with a negotiated discount rate. Recruiters reduce search costs when multiple hires are involved. Maybe you're hiring 6 engineers over the course of 12 months. There should be a discounted rate for that with a good recruiter.
So how do you reduce your search cost? By reducing the recruiter’s risk with an engagement fee. The engagement fee reduces risk and focuses your recruiter!
