Companies usually don't think twice about upgrading their machines and equipment. These investments, which help to maximize efficiency and enhance product quality, often give good returns. It's surprising that most organizations have not applied this same business logic when hiring employees.

Investments in employees do not stop with wages and benefits. Administrative and management costs related to training and development also need to be considered. Investing in employees, even for "low-paying" jobs, typically involves a significant amount of money.
