PwC released a 10min brief on ‘what companies can do to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of their HR organizations for better workforce ROI’. I’d review, but Acrobat didn’t like it. I tried, for 10mins. Then had an idea: if you only had 10 mins to change your HR department, what would you do?
HubCap forums discuss what’s next for people in the workplace: how they can be better managed, measured, reported and valued.
They bridge disparate voices such as getting HR talking to Finance, take the latest ideas in the lecture room and bring them into the boardroom, draw attention to and assess global points of view.
Hopefully they inspire new areas of research, new books, new approaches, new policies.
With luck, they will help the next generation change the way we think, value, manage - and talk - about people.

In March 2010, we opened up our forum. For discussing what’s next for people in the workplace - how they can be better measured, managed and reported - our forum perfectly complements the aims and ambitions of our digital library, providing HR, finance, psychology, the media and others with a sounding board for new ideas.
Sponsored by HC consultancy, Human Potential Accounting and sister company, HR consultancy People Resolutions, HubCap launched Sept 09 as an international non-profit publishing platform for anyone – like us – interested in human capital.
Combining a digital library with the best of social networks, it's now a growing community of professionals, academics, journalists and politicians who share an active commitment to changing the way organisations think – and talk – about people.
Especially now, we feel this is both needed and long overdue.
We are strictly non-competitive. Organisations that might consider themselves competitors are invited to use it to promote their preferred solutions.
This is the only way forward.
Home and host to the Accounting for People 2.0 movement and publisher of the Human Capital Handbook 2011, HubCap is free to join.
There is a data revolution going on. Not just over customer data, but Human Capital Management insights into the creative ability of employees to compete.
The knowledge economy businesses - Starbucks, Google, even NASA - embracing HCM are winning. But HCM maturity is now also creating a picture of business potential of vital and growing interest to the financial community (Moody's, AXA) as well as business leaders.
Home of the Human Capital Handbook series, HubCap is a free non-profit network and library bringing together the latest global HCM ideas by experts in business, academia, investment and regulation.
The HubCap human capital network connects and invites participation and perspectives from too often disparate professions: academia, politics, journalism, corporate management, consulting.
It's not LinkedIn or Facebook of course.
And it doesn't want to be.
The central object of our network is not where you work or what you do when you play.
It's designed to enable those with human capital related content (writers, authors, editors) and those who want to open it up for discussion (professionals as well as fellow authors) to publish and consume the latest ideas.
So if you have something to publish, or are interested in connecting with others eager to discuss the latest published human capital ideas, join the HubCap network.
It's free too.
On HubCap, you can do three core things:
Publish: HubCap’s library includes articles from International bodies: European Accounting Association, Personnel Today; Journals: Journal of Finance & Accountancy, Critical Perspectives on Accounting; Academics: Robin Roslender, Suresh Cuganesan, Ulf Johanson; Business leaders: Alison Gill, Tim Hoad, Vineet Nayar. Not to mention the Human Capital Handbook 2011
Discuss: The strength of the HubCap forum and groups lies in the collective perspectives derived from so many different disciplines: financial services, psychology, academia, politics, journalism, HR, corporate governance, management and consulting. And from all corners of the world.
Connect: HubCap’s regular expert webinars help professionals, working to make businesses more effective, understand what’s next for people in the workplace: how they can be better measured, managed, and reported.
The goal though is not just to aggregate the latest thinking. It’s not just to use the document viewer – one of only a handful of companies to develop this technology – think Google, NYT, Scribd – to lens and socialise the ideas within. It’s to use the library’s wrap-around networking functionality to connect authors to readers, accelerate the ideas exchange between academia and business, East to West, from concept to practical reality.
Especially now, we need edgeless thinking and actionable intelligence.
If you want to know what people are saying about people, it’s here, and free.
It's amazing the nuggets of gold that come out when people talk about their personal views and passions. You now have a document viewer as the central lens on all your library documents and you already have a fledgling business network to connect with your peers worldwide. Next up?
