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.
