All the latest breaking news from HubCap.
To get your copy, go to the Human Capital Handbook microsite and click on Downloads (obviously!)
Or, if you’re a member of the free HCM library community, you can get a copy from the HubCap library.
Of course, you can also download the February and June editions too (a different cast list, but just as rich mix of heavyweight articles on all aspects of human capital management, measurement, and reporting – from the POV of business, academia and the investment community.)
We hope you enjoy it - and if you like what you see, share it too.
Blending heavyweight subjects like human capital reporting, as well as specialist titbits on workforce analytics, people risks and creative leadership, HubCap’s library is a rich feast. Weighing in at just over 150 articles though, it’s not the Library of Congress. But then, HCM is an emerging science and still finding its feet – hence why we built a library for the best articles on it. And having the best of the best in one place makes your choice of Sunday afternoon reading easy-peasy.
Do you adore Apple? Are you an Amazon acolyte? Do you worship at the feet of Wired? Are the gospels according to Google? Would you be surprised to find a brain scan showed the same part of your brain lighting up like a Christmas tree when you’re shown a snow white iPad that lights up like a burning bush when a religious fanatic is shown the Holy Grail?
‘One of the most critical issues facing investors and corporate stakeholders is the challenge of ensuring the relevance, timeliness, reliability, consistency and comparability of information and its impact on the ability to truly measure the value of an enterprise in the New Economy.’
So begins Ryan Offutt's Crystalline that goes on to explore in some depth the theoretical underpinnings of human capital management, as well as current and future challenges in this emerging area. Newly published on HubCap Digital, you can access the full works (and download for free) by clicking here.
Ryan's Crystalline marks the second in a new series of thought pieces written by the Human Potential Accounting (HPA) Business Intelligence team and selected guest writers. The expertly crafted documents are designed to keep you abreast of the latest thinking in human capital and sample the quality of our research output. As well as our own publishing schedule, HPA also invites organisations to commission their own bespoke Crystalline for targeted business intelligence - learn more about our services here.

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.
We now have our own document viewer, like Scribd and Google, except ours means business, and unlike Scribd and Google, we're happy to develop it in any way that makes your life easier.
Whether you're a Theorist or Reflector, Activist or Pragmatist, just let us know - it may make all the difference.
