The difference between investment and cost in business is understood just by the wise. If you mix up the two, trouble starts. It is necessary to have good human talent pool in any organization, paying them good salaries and providing your talent benefits is never a cost, but an investment. Also there needs to be tools to gauge if you have invested well or not.
