Could your business afford to give away more than $400,000 a year? Of course not. But that’s the average amount manufacturers lose because of lost or misplaced assets.

A snapshot of projected hiring shows that about 40% of manufacturers planned to hire workers in September, a net increase of 12.4% compared with September 2011, according to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
