Human capital investment is the process companies use to develop employees, since human capital is an asset consisting of the knowledge and skills held by a person that can be used by an organization to advance its goals. Businesses invest in employee training to improve business operations, which reduces wasted resources from unskilled workers and increases overall employee efficiency. Companies calculate education/training benefits with a cost-benefit analysis, which analyzes the total cost of improving employee output against the benefits of the investment.

Skilled employees may also have specific expertise in completing certain functions, increasing their value in the workplace. Unskilled labor is usually individuals completing basic or repetitive business tasks that are not as highly valued.

Training is most often conducted by supervisors working on the job with employees, showing them how to complete specific functions.
