It further said that Indian companies make a pure profit of Rs 15 from every Rs 100-worth revenue generated by their each employee.

Moreover, organisations with higher revenue base incur 1.3 times higher cost per employee but also earn 1.4 times higher profit per employee organisations compared with lower revenue base companies.

The report, which is based on a survey of 37 firms across different sectors noted that Indian organisations spend about Rs 25,500 per hire on an average.

However, FMCG and other unclassified sectors spend more than double the amount towards their recruitment. This could be because of the high cost of their recruitment teams.
