The real cost of replacing employees, besides recruitment costs, can be six months of training and lost productivity and up to one year of the departing employee’s salaries. Hiring top talent requires time and takes focus away from core business priorities. And business owners don’t always ask the right questions or ask questions they shouldn’t, which can get them into legal trouble.
Time-consuming recruitment activities include:
- Sourcing candidates
- Screening for highly qualified candidates
- Sorting through resumes
- Conducting several interviews
- Sending offer letters
HRCoastal reduces these time-consuming burdens. You interview only the best candidates who have been screened based on the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed and your company culture.
Benefits of using our Recruitment Process are:
- Lower recruitment fees
- Highly qualified candidates
- Less burden and time savings for the manager
HRCoastal customizes to meet your recruiting needs. We identify hidden candidates who don’t answer job posts. Then we screen them and provide only the best candidates for your consideration.
We develop a set of interview questions about the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for the job, and include questions about the candidate’s work preferences and character. And we coach you on interviewing skills so that you do the right things to be legally compliant.
We also provide necessary regulatory forms and processes when new employees start their job, maintaining your legal compliance. We also develop an onboarding process so that your new employee feels like a part of the team from Day 1.

Criminal Background Checks
Would you knowingly hire a sex or violent offender? Hiring a person with a criminal background can cause dire consequences for your company. A person with a history of violence can place other employees, managers and even clients at risk. A person with a history of theft, fraud, or embezzlement can place a business at risk if items in a customer’s home are missing.
You are at risk for “negligent hiring” because you should have known about the offender’s criminal past. The cost of the background check is well worth your peace of mind.
HRCoastal conducts criminal drug tests on a national level so that you will know any felony convictions. Our criminal background check includes a national search for:
- Social Security number validation
- Address history
- Felony convictions
- Court records
- Sex offenses
- Incarceration records
The biggest benefit of conducting a criminal background check is knowing the facts before you make an important hiring decision. A criminal background search could save your business.
HRCoastal conducts oral drug screens to protect your business. Employees who use alcohol or recreational drugs may still be impaired when they come to work. If they are driving on the job and have an accident, Workers Compensation will not cover the injuries, and your insurance company may not cover the comprehensive and collision costs.
And when the plaintiffs from the other car call a personal injury attorney, how much will the lawsuit damage your finances and reputation if your employee was impaired? Skipping the background check and drug screen exposes your company to both negligent hiring and injury lawsuits that could shutter your business.
Onboarding is the process that assimilates new employees into your company. It goes far beyond signing papers and a quick orientation on the first day of work. Onboarding helps new employees.
- understand the company’s core values and goals
- know their responsibilities within the company
- introduces them to coworkers
- engage early to avoid turnover due to a lack of attention.
