Human capital is a company’s most valuable resource– and leading-edge companies are acknowledging this by bringing a human capital mindset to their HR departments.

Lucas Group announced the publication of the executive recruiting firm’s newest white paper, “How SMBs Can Optimize Their Human Capital Investment.

Authored by Denver Managing Partner Kyle Lehman, the paper focuses on the importance of bringing a human capital mindset to HR departments of all sizes, from Fortune 100 corporations to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The paper is in response to the current “talent arms race,” which is creating new recruitment and retention urgencies for companies of all sizes across the United States.

Unemployment rates in Denver, where Lehman is based, are at a historic low of 2.6 percent, giving talent significant leverage when it comes to selecting their next employer. While a single-minded focus on talent acquisition is tempting given the current candidate marketplace, Lehman cautions that employers must not overlook the importance of talent deployment.

“A company’s ability to recruit and retain top talent is just the starting point,” says Lehman. “How a company strategically deploys their talent is what truly matters. Human capital is a company’s most valuable resource– and leading-edge companies are acknowledging this by bringing a human capital mindset to their HR departments.”

The white paper highlights three key opportunities for human capital optimization – talent, time and energy – and provides actionable optimization recommendations.

“HR must rebrand, reposition, and reorient itself if it is to play a critical role in improving business performance and increasing return on investments in human capital,” says Lehman.

Lehman, who joined Lucas Group in 2012, has placed more than 100 HR professionals, with a special focus on helping companies develop the “HR department of the future.”
