More specialized jobs can cost more to fill because specialists are generally paid more. Recruitment cost elements can include employment advertising and search or employment agency fees.

When turnover is high, administrative costs such as paycheck discontinuance, health-care service notifications, exit interviewing and employee orientation and training costs will increase.
