Why should you outsource to Firecracker as opposed to hiring someone internally?
Besides the dedicated expertise and experience that Firecracker brings, did you know that hiring an employee has many other hidden costs besides just salary?
Here is a simple example:
|Salary and benefits|
|Calculating benefits and salary (cost/hour)||2||$100.00|
|Working with IT to develop workspace||0.5||$42.50|
|Contracting with recruiter/headhunter||$5,000.00|
|Advertising for position||$300.00|
|Mileage and entertainment||$100.00|
|Test for controlled substances||$75.00|
|In-house training on company applications||6||$210.00|
|Training programs with vendor||$600.00|
|Additional office equipment||$500.00|
|Total hiring costs||$77,847.50|
As you can see, the actual hiring costs can be 56% higher than the visible annual salary!
Don’t stress. Go with Firecracker for your marketing needs.
