Modular Building Manufacturer
A modular building manufacturer with branches throughout the US possessed an overall turnover rate of 77%, with the majority of their turnover occurring in the Service, Administration and Transportation divisions. Due to the extensive training provided to new hires, the organization faced magnified turnover costs. They opted to re-evaluate their recruitment process and identified the ERI as the ideal tool to provide more information about the candidates prior to hiring them.
A total of 1781 candidates were considered in this case study. Of these candidates, 553 were considered prior to the implementation of the ERI (prior to March 2015), and 1228 were screened after the implementation of the ERI (from March 2015 to August 2017).
Employee turnover rates before and after implementation of the pre-employment integrity test
To determine the return on investment that the client experienced from introducing the ERI into their recruiting procedures, we looked at their average yearly turnover rates and the estimated cost to replace individuals within each department.
Note: Some of the estimated costs to replace (3rd column of data) were given a higher-than-average value due to the extensive training that new employees receive (e.g. the Transportation division).
