From Recruiter.com. Worth a read, my comment at the bottom makes a point I’ve always thought needed to be addressed. Human capital is managed to a lesser extent than any other on the market. I know of no company, literally none, that even knows what revenue is contributed on average on a position level, much less an individual employee level. Not only do they not really know who to cut and retain in hard times, they don’t know who they should concentrate on retaining in good times, and who is more or less replaceable.
