HSBC to announce bonuses and profits
HSBC could re-ignite the controversy over bonuses with chief executive Stewart Gulliver in line for up to £12m when the bank reports its 2013 results today. Investors have seen the value of their holdings falling by 9 per cent in 2013 and the dividend is expected to come in at around 31p.
Staff turnover costs Britain £4.1bn

That is £5,433 for agency fees, advertising and interviewing, plus £25,182 over the time that new hires take to hit full productivity.
