When you need to add or replace staff, where do you go? Do you have an internal HR or use Recruiters or both?
I'm trying to get a feel for what people are doing. If I work with a recruiter they want $20k-$40K per person. If I hire an HR person they will cost me up to $10K per month but I would expect them to get more then 1 person per month.
I'm looking at staffing a project that may have 20 people over the next couple of months.
I'm not looking for an HR person or a recruiter, I have access to them once I decide.
I'm just interested in peoples opinions and experience between the two.
I fear that a cheap HR person will not have connections, same with a low cost recruiter. I'm expecting an HR person to already know people who might fill the position, I understand that a recruiter would be looking for people and be doing a search, am I wrong on this?
