32 hires per year.
Remember that the 25 hires do not count the new jobs or number of openings.
Calculating the costs per hire
It's also matters on the average salary is per hire. It's again difficult as you have varied or mixed job roles, however measuring the mean average. This is to indicate the agency placement fees.

50 applications per hire.

by your administrator. Let's consider 15 minutes/application with 50 applications per hire we calculated and multiply this by 32 hires/year we have measured sums up to a substantial amount of time.

placement fee. Now out of those calculated 32 hires
, let 19 be hired by the agency. On applying 15%
placement fee to the $33,333
average salary and multiplying it by 19
