Human Capital

Helping People Thrive

“Human capital is an intangible asset or quality not listed on a company’s balance sheet. It can be classified as the economic value of a worker’s experience and skills. This includes assets like education, training, intelligence, skills, health, and other things employers value such as loyalty and punctuality.

The concept of human capital recognizes that not all labor is equal. But employers can improve the quality of that capital by investing in employees—the education, experience, and abilities of employees all have economic value for employers and for the economy as a whole.

Human capital is important because it is perceived to increase productivity and thus profitability. So the more a company invests in its employees (i.e., in their education and training), the more productive and profitable it could be.

“Human capital management” refers to an organization’s ability to plan for, engage, assess, develop and retain its top talent. It comprises all of the work processes and systems that are related to creating and sustaining a vital and highly productive workforce, now and into the future. It is also a business strategy that helps to ensure that the organization can attract top talent in competition with other employers. When employers demonstrate effective human capital management strategies that provide employees with opportunities to develop professionally, they have a strategic advantage in the battle to attract and retain the best talent.
