Ask Barb: Metrics For New Hires



Ask Barb

Dear Barb:

Would you be willing to share the metrics you use for new hires? I have not hired someone new in over two years and I’m not sure what minimum standards to implement. I plan to use your tutor to train them, but I need to understand metrics.

I know your average fee is around $25,000 which is our average as well. That is why I feel the metrics you use will work for my business. If this is confidential information, can you give me some kind of range? Also, what should I pay a new person with no recruiting experience?
