Forrester Validates Simply Hired’s Online Recruitment Solution

Measuring the value of recruiting activities is often difficult for companies. The most successful organizations have measurement tools in place to track the impact of decisions ranging from budget allocation to vendor selection.

It’s vital to know how effectively your recruiting dollars are being spent. Ask yourself whether you are seeing a reduction in costs and a faster time to hire as opposed to spending with no incremental improvement in efficiency.

A large organization that has worked with Simply Hired for more than six years volunteered their data for a Forrester Total Economic Impact Study. The results are in, and we’re happy to report the findings. They prove that Simply Hired is an essential part of a cost-conscious recruiting strategy, providing value to job seekers and employers alike. Some highlights from the study:

  1. Lowest Cost: Simply Hired delivered candidates at the lowest cost of all vendors studied – less than 1/2 the cost of the leading job boards.
  2. Faster Time-to-fill: With Simply Hired faster time-to-fill is estimated to play a positive role in nearly 100% of hiring campaigns.
  3. Low Risk: Only pay for job postings when they’re clicked, compared with paying to post jobs at the outset.


While we’re proud of our ability to drive cost savings, Simply Hired ultimately provides a service to job seekers and employers. By matching the right candidates to the right job, we help job seekers find jobs they love and we help employers find productive employees.

Forrester’s study also validates that the service we provide—and the technology we’ve developed—benefits employers and job seekers alike by saving clients money and filling positions faster. The recruiting organization in the study estimated that Simply Hired Client Services, at no incremental fee, helped the client save additional expense in an estimated 10 percent of their hiring campaigns.

Whether your recruiting budget is in the millions or in the thousands, Simply Hired can help you save money. To download the full report, click here. We at Simply Hired would love to help you find great hires — faster and at a better value than traditional job boards.
