How can investors value businesses more through HCM insights? What human capital measures do the HC-ready investors of the future need? How will this shared awareness of the long-term people potential of a business change the business-City relationship? Join HubCap sponsor HPA on 29th September at the Royal College of Physicians in London to get the answers.
So there we were. Inspired by HPA and HubCap's CEO Dr Michael Reddy, who’d taken the remarkable step of meeting everyone beforehand, on the plush oversized cow-hide chairs of the Soho Hotel’s private cinema, over 25 business leaders all drawn together by a higher purpose: to change UK business reporting forever.
Stephen Green, the equable HSBC Group Chairman, isn't smug though he could afford to crow over the deft way in which HSBC has escaped the worst of the banking crisis. Fellow bank grandees, like Goodwin, like Icarus, have flown too close to the sun, had their wings melted and come to earth with a crash.
HubCap's Director, Michael Reddy, will give a talk about the powerful role of human capital analysis at “Human Capital: 2010 and beyond”, a one-day conference on 30th Sept 2010 run by The Human Capital Forum in Central London.
The Human Capital Handbook is a free quarterly ebook series published by HubCap’s chief sponsor, Human Potential Accounting, a UK leader in HCM analysis and research that helps business leaders and financial analysts assess the sophistication and maturity of their human capital or talent management strategy and practices.
Launched February 2011, the series was inspired by HPA’s Dr Michael Reddy, who after launching HubCap to aggregate the latest human capital management, measurement and reporting articles, wanted to select, package up and present the latest international HCM thinking in a regular, neatly designed, portable format.
Handbooks blend heavyweight articles, some specially commissioned, some republished or extracted by permission, with cartoons, illustrations, soundbites and linked snippets designed to enrich the collection, encourage further reading, or just have some fun along the way. They deliberately avoid repeating received wisdom, preferring to lead and bolster calls for change, debunk prevailing assumptions, and shine lights into areas of often much needed future enquiry. But they are also designed to accelerate the exchange and application of practical HCM insights between business and academia: they are Handbooks after all.
The series is published on the HubCap library as well as made available for download on the dedicated Handbook microsite.
Human Potential Accounting (HubCap's founder) sponsored Accounting for People 2.0 picks up the threads from its 2005 predecessor, but is a very different animal in a much changed context.
The first meeting of the Taskforce took place on Oct 21st 2010 in London’s Soho Hotel. Accounting for People 2.0: The Business Case for Human Capital Reporting drew together over 25 business leaders and comprised interactive discussions led by HPA and HubCap's CEO Dr Michael Reddy, with Tim Hoad and Richard Phelps on Financial Reporting; Raj Thamotheram and Ali Gil on Investing; and Morgan Witzel and Ann Graham on Alternative Business Models.
Participants were invited to collaborate on HubCap, where a series of expert papers have been uploaded to aid deliberations (papers included in the forthcoming Human Capital Handbook 2011). The aim is to coalesce thinking into a far-reaching proposal for legislative change: an AfP 2.0 People Reporting Framework, which will be submitted to the Government by December 2011.
HPA hosts a human capital breakfast briefing on Wed 10th February near Tower Hill, London, with two morning sessions to choose from (8:45am and 11.00am start). Dr Michael Reddy will be facilitating two-way exchange around key themes throughout the morning, with three workstreams to choose from:
