Abstract

Using the case‐study examples of Dow and UnitedHealth Group and a selection of research papers, Alice Snell, vice president of Taleo Research, explores the ways in which you can help control HR’s financial burden. She highlights four key areas where HR can cut costs: by accelerating the hiring process, reducing high turnover, avoiding exposure to legal implications and cutting the costs of temporary work.
