Labor costs help you understand the financial impact of changes to development performance over time. For instance, you can track the cost per new feature on the executive dashboard to compare overall productivity and cost efficiency.
How to configure labor cost:
- Navigate to the Settings view in the app.
- Go to the Organization tab.
- Scroll down to Labor Cost.
- Input the average fully-burdened labor cost per developer (in USD).
Average fully-burdened labor cost is the sum of each employee's gross wages plus other employee-related expenses, taxes, and benefits. Typically, this cost is about 1.2-1.4x of each employee's base salary.
