We’re excited to announce the release of our 2015 Direct Hire Agency Benchmarking Report™ to help businesses understand current trends for direct hire jobs.
Our report is the first of its kind to offer a glimpse into how much employers are willing to pay direct hire agencies for in demand candidates to fill vacant jobs.
We found that the pendulum is swinging in favor of highly sought-after job candidates, including those who are critical to business operations, carrying a salary over $100,000 or specialized by skill set or industry.
The 2015 Direct Hire Agency Benchmarking Report™ shows that fees being paid to acquire key talent rose 6.3 percent in 2014, as competition drove up salaries for premium jobs. During the same time period, fees paid as a percentage of direct hire salaries became stable at about 21 percent.
The report also reveals that premium fees — those paid at or above 25 percent of a direct hire candidate’s salary — are inc reasing.

We hope this report will give businesses key insights into the direct hire agency marketplace, so they can maintain competitive talent acquisition strategies.
