In this section you need to enter the following details:
Departing Employees Annual Basic Salary: Total yearly Basic Salary of the departing employee.
Departing Employees Annual Benefits: Usually, it is 20% of the basic salary. A formula has been inserted for the same. If it matches to your company policy then no need to change otherwise you can enter manually.

Salary + Benefits Per Day: Auto-Calculated. The formula applied here is (H7+H8)/H10.
Salary + Benefits Per hour: Auto-Calculated. The formula applied here is ((H7+H8)/H10)/H11).
2. Vacant Position Coverage Costs
The post of the employee remains vacant until the new employee joins the organization. Thus, the workload is either distributed to other employees or remains undone. To calculate this cost multiply the number of days the post remains vacant to the benchmark costs provided in the above section.
In this section, you need to enter only one field that is the number of days to fill the vacant position and the formula will automatically calculate the cost of covering vacant position per day as well as the total cost of covering vacant post.
3. Cost To Fill

Enter the salary of the recruiting staff, their working days, and hours per day and the template will calculate the Salary per day and salary per hour for the recruiting staff.
Further to that enter the no of days or hours required for screening and it will calculate the costs. Similarly for the interviewing process.

You need to input the salary+benefits of the new employee and the template will display the per day cost as well as the cost for the total number of days.
