When making a new hire, it’s always important to examine not only the benefits that an extra mind and pair of hands will bring, but also the costs: the bottom line. Many assume that this bottom line will merely consist of whatever salary the new employee is paid, but in reality, the cost of a new hire is almost always higher than this baseline. According to today’s source article from CNN Money, the total cost of adding another employee to the payroll is usually 18%-26% higher than cost of their salary. Mostly, this money goes into benefits such as medical and dental coverage. The other costs that bosses have to consider are a whole rainbow of taxes from Medicare to State Unemployment Insurance on top of Payroll Taxes and 401(k) contributions. What’s more, employees may need up to a half a year of their salary in training before they can begin producing at a company.
