The High Cost of Unfilled Positions

Written by Zach Mayner

How much revenue are you missing out on by having a position unfilled for an extended period of time? To calculate lost revenue, simply take the amount of revenue your company generates per year and divide it by the number of employees you have. This figure gives you a rough estimate of the amount of revenue generated per employee, per year. Take this amount and divide it by 365 days to determine how much daily revenue each employee generates.

Example: A Manufacturing company with $100,000,000 in yearly revenue and 400 employees.
$100,000,000 ÷ 400 EE’s = $250,000 in yearly revenue per employee
$250,000 ÷ 365 days = $684.93 in daily revenue per employee.

In this scenario, every day a position is left unfilled, the manufacturing company is potentially missing out on $684.93 in revenue.

Weekly cost of unfilled position:
1 Week- $3,424.65
2 Weeks- $6,849.30
3 Weeks- $10,270.95
1 Month- $13,695.60
