On one side we keep hearing how much companies care about their talents, on the other we realize it is mostly cheap talk. They squeeze them as lemons, and then dispose of them when needed. I found this article on Financial Times to be a great description of the sad reality of on boarding.
Actually, I do feel it could make sense if we consider how much these people get paid, but on the other side it is another description of the folly that inhabits corporations. Where is all the concern for evidence-based decision making? Who is checking the expected value of this underinvestment?
