Aspen has a comprehensive cost and expense tracking model, based on the ANSI cost per hire standard. Tracking internal costs, external costs, staffing, and then the return is old hat to Aspen and its team. The founder was one of the primary authors of the standard, and Aspen has been using it to drive 20 to 30% savings in businesses since its inception.

Measures include ROI, costs of recruiting, investment for each candidate stage and candidate progression, and linking directly back to operation goals, provided those goals and investments are granted to Aspen.
