How much time and money do you think people issues are costing your company? Below is a guide. Or use our HR Time Calculator to provide an indicative personalised amount for you.

No time. Our HR calculator predicts a minimum cost $60k /year spent on unproductive people issues and a minimum of $80k of higher returning areas not being focused on. Time to focus on areas that will deliver a higher ROI.

Staff not performing, productive or not taking any accountability or responsibility. The average difference between a top performer and bottom performer can be significant. In operational/procedures roles this can be a minimum of 2 times better output. In creative roles, this can be 10 times. Performing and results focused staff.
Team not working together efficiently or effectively. We estimate poor communication, doubling up, and red tape can cost a minimum of 20% in role productivity. What could each individual team member do with an extra 20% in their week. High performing teams that support each other.
Pain, stress and cost of non-compliance (policies/ employee documentation and legislative requirements) or not sure if compliant. Depending on the matter it could vary between $5000 – $3,000,000. Compliant and stress free.
People keep leaving. The number one reason people leave an organisation is due to their direct manager.

You can also collaborate with other business but need to make sure you don’t bind yourself to things that you are not doing or is relevant to your industry. How much time could you spend researching an area that you don’t know about? And if it is wrong – the costs could have significant legal ramifications. Access to tools, resources and expertise to save you time and additional cost.
