The hidden costs on open jobs in your company can be both surprising and significant, making it critical to fill these positions quickly. An open position represents an opportunity cost—you are not making money while the job remains vacant. Nailing down the overall expense of these unfilled openings can be difficult. Our Cost of Unfilled Positions Calculator can help you quickly get a handle on the actual cost of your open positions. 

Your Opened Positions Can Be More Costly Than You Think 

Workplace vacancies can be costly in a variety of ways. Beyond the direct costs of advertising and interviewing, there are also indirect costs associated with decreased productivity and employee morale.  

For example, if an employee needs to take on additional work to cover for a vacant position, they may become overwhelmed and stressed, leading to poorer quality work and even their departure from the company. Additionally, other employees may become resentful if they feel they are picking up the slack for a vacant position, leading to decreased morale and motivation.
