Missing the Train
T he typical U.S. company spent nearly 50 times as much to recruit a professional making $100,000 a year than it did to train that person. Across all compensation levels, U.S. companies spent $1,415 in recruiting costs for every $10,000 of new-employee pay. But the median training expense per full-time worker was only $288.
