How Much Will You Spend on Your Next Employee?
There are many unseen expenses to manage a single employee. By understanding all of the costs associated with an employee, an organization is better able to make informed decisions and prioritize where and how much to invest.
Below are the most significant parts of a large formula. Here you have a very simple Total Cost of Management (“TCM”) calculator in just ONE STEP. The talent metric “TCM” is the approximate entire cost across the entire lifecycle of an employee. It’s the total amount you will ultimately spend on that employee if you hired them tomorrow.
