Hiring People

Make the best recruitment decisions

Impact Through Hiring People. You need someone and you need that person now, but you want to do it right.

After all hiring someone is one of the most important people management decisions you need to make! Getting this step wrong can be costly in terms of dollars, time and productivity. The Impact HR team can help you and your business in the way that you need to find the right person. From writing the job advertisement through to issuing the letter of offer and any support in between.

Impact HR Meeting


Research shows that the average cost to a business to replace an employee is between 30% to 150% of their total annual wage. This means that if you need to replace a team member earning $50,000 a year, this may cost you between $15,000 and $75,000. This is a huge loss so the decision can’t be taken lightly.

  • Are you struggling to decide whether or not you should grow your team?
  • Do you know that you need help recruiting but you just don’t know where to start?
  • Have you tried hiring before and found it hard to find the right person?
  • Do you want help wading through the numerous candidates to narrow it down to a select few?


Our team at Impact HR can make all of this easy for you. We can take the stress and anxiety away from this important part of building your team. Depending on your preference we can do everything or just some parts of the process. We can write the job advertisement, advertise, screen candidates, interview, reference check and test your new team member to make sure they are the right person to join your business.

Once you’ve found your new team member, it is essential to make sure you provide them with the best possible start and introduction to your business. We know that the majority of new employees make their decision about staying with an organisation within the first three days of employment and this is reinforced over the next six months. The Impact HR team can design and provide all the communication and information you and your new team member need to ensure starting work is exciting and the process happens smoothly.


Having the right people working in your business is essential to your overall success. Adding a new member is an important and exciting step, whether it is your first hire or an addition to an already large team. It is essential that you get the hiring of people right. Not only that you find the right person but that the process of bringing them into your team is seamless. The right person can enhance a team, the wrong one can could undermine your business.

Whichever delivery model you choose, Impact HR will provide the experience and know-how to maximise the process of adding the right person to your team.
