Washington, D.C. - February 24, 2006 - The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and Multi-Health Systems (MHS), the publisher of two of the leading Emotional Intelligence assessments used by thousands of organizations around the world, announced today that Multi-Health Systems will sponsor HCI's Emotional Intelligence and Human Capital learning and research track. The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI's Talent Development community of interest, a community HCI considers critical to businesses striving to become high performing organizations.
"Emotional intelligence plays an important role in a well-balanced and productive workplace, as well as in leadership development," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's Executive Director. "We're pleased that Multi-Health Systems, a company with a long history of understanding the necessity of developing non-cognitive skills to achieve professional success, is supporting this track where we will help employers gain insight into emotional intelligence and its bottom-line impact through human capital."
Referencing the ever-growing research on the subject, this track will explain why emotional intelligence, often referred to as EI, is a critical aspect of leadership development, team building, performance management, selection and retention, organizational change, and succession planning. It will also explore how EI can be assessed and developed. The Thought Leader panel will kick off this series with "Return on Emotion: Predicting and Improving Human Performance for Workplace success". The February 27th webcast will discuss how an empirically driven star performer system can have a significant impact on the cost of turnover, work quality and productivity. To sign up for the webcast, please go to http://www.humancapitalinstitute.org and select Webcasts from the Events menu.
"Employers are just beginning to understand the importance of EI. Going forward, those organizations that measure and develop emotional intelligence will have a distinct advantage over those that don't," said Gerald FitzGerald, President and Chief Operating Officer of Multi-Health Systems. "We're pleased to support the Human Capital Institute's efforts in this area."
