Proposal for New Employee

Scenario: You are the Senior Supervisor for the Admissions Department of Valleybrook Hospital, a 500-bed hospital full service health care facility. In the past three years, admissions at Valleybrook have increased an average of 15% per year.

Up to now, the admissions staff members have filed their own information but increases in admissions, filing is backing up. Observing this, you need to prepare a justification proposal for a part-time filing clerk. Use the information below, to calculate a Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA).

Facts:

? Currently have 5 full-time admissions clerks at $12 per hour or $12, 544.00 monthly cost (including $1344 fringe costs). The admissions clerks are so busy with admissions and paperwork related to admittance that they do not have adequate time to file all their paperwork.

? Part-time filing clerk needed at 20 hours (no fringe) at $10 per hour

? Increase in admissions has increased revenue an average of $300,000 monthly. With expenses factored in, there is a profit for Valleybrook of approximately $100,000 monthly.

? Profit configured conservatively at 5% increase, Valleybrook would still realize a clear profit of approximately $30,000 monthly.

Option 1: Existing admissions clerks can work overtime. Each clerk will work 3 hours overtime each week.

Option 2: Hire a part-time filing clerk.
