To see the importance of calculating hiring ROI, just multiply the number of people you're forecasting to hire in the next 12 months by their average compensation. This is probably a big number. For example, if you're planning on hiring a group consisting of college grads, experienced techies, and a bunch of customer service reps, you're probably looking at an average compensation of $65,000. If you're hiring 1,000 of these folks, this means you'll be spending $65 million on new hires in the next 12 months, and if you're going to hire 100 you'll be spending $6.5 million.
