March 16, 2016 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm EST 

Speaker: Jeff Higgins

If you were asked to locate human capital information in your corporate reports, where would it be? Income statement or balance sheet? Expense or revenue?

For the majority of companies, human capital still remains classified as an operating cost section rather than a value-adding asset. Human capital is clearly a critical element to an organization’s success but yet it’s unclear what type of talent information should be collected, measured and reported on a regular basis.

Join HCMI’s CEO, Jeff Higgins, on our webinar series to understand why human capital reporting plays such an important role in workforce optimization. Featuring HCMI’s Human Capital Disclosure Statement, Jeff will also provide a solution to this problem and show what information should be included in your human capital reporting whether for internal insight or public financial disclosure. Here are some questions that this webinar will answer:

  • What gets measured gets managed. Human Capital is not well measured except for costs. Does that mean it is not well managed except as a cost?
  • If Human Capital is so critical, why is it not reported publicly?
  • Which data is critical; what data is good to know and what data is not?
