Share Article

For years organizations have struggled to quantify the value of Human Capital, until now!

Human Capital Management Institute (HCMI) Announces the 1st Human Capital Financial Statements (HCF$™) Benchmarking Survey. This unique survey definitively measures workforce productivity and ROI, benchmarking organizations by industry as well as world class performance levels. Take the Survey

Organizations frequently say employees are their most valuable asset, as well as, largest expense. However, traditional financial statements contain little or no information on this critical source of value creation. This lack of human capital information makes it nearly impossible to benchmark an organization’s productivity and talent management effectiveness.

Globalization, connectivity, and technology are speeding the transition to an economy swimming in “Big Data” and driven by knowledge rather than goods. In this new landscape, human capital is a critical differentiator. Companies need smart, effective employees to compete, so understanding and quantifying human capital is critical for success and future growth.

HCMI’s Human Capital Financial Statements (HCF$) provide a standard with which to measure, report and analyze a company’s human capital. A company’s workforce, currently treated only as an expense, can finally be quantified and reported for what it is: a critical factor in the success of any organization.

On November 2011, CFO magazine featured the Human Capital Financial Statements on a cover story entitled “Power from the People”.

Key Workforce Questions The Survey Will Help Answer:
1.    Do we have the right number of employees?
2.    What is the right workforce cost?
3.    What is the marginal return of $1.0 invested in the workforce?
4.    What is the ROI of our Workforce?
5.    What is our Workforce productivity and how do we compare with peers?
6.    And many more...

“HCMI’s Human Capital Financial Statements (HCFS ™) represent the endpoint HR has been searching for to standardize measurement and enable comparison of human capital performance across industry, and geography,” states Dr. Jac Fitz-enz, CEO, Human Capital Source; and known as the father of workforce analytics.    

Jeff Higgins, CEO of HCMI says: “Human Capital Financial Statements represent more than a set of reports. They are a clear, quantitative, standard – a surgical tool - providing insight and superior predictive decisions using workforce analytics. With analytics, organizations can outmaneuver competitors to attract, manage and retain superior talent.”
