During radical global transformation, human capital is business capital. To give organizations competitive, actionable intelligence to inform their workforce strategies, we are introducing The Conference Board Human Capital Benchmarking Service, the first global, cross-functional tool to assess metrics and practices against your most valuable asset: your people.

Why should you participate in this benchmarking service?

  • You'll learn how your organization measures up in 10 areas of human capital.

  • You'll receive the 2020 State of Human Capital report, a comprehensive aggregation of benchmarked data.

  • You'll be considered for excellence awards in the areas in which you’ve participated.

How do you get started?

  • Click here to register for any or all of 10 topical surveys. The first 200 respondents to complete the survey in each of the 10 categories will receive a free pass to a conference of The Conference Board-a $2895 value.

  • This global service is open to all human capital practitioners. Members of The Conference Board Human Capital Center participate in all ten categories at no cost. Members of a Council of The Conference Board may participate in one survey at no cost. Non-members pay $299 per topical survey.

What is the time frame?

The survey portal is now available for organization benchmark submissions. Results will be available in 3rd quarter 2020.

Which areas are benchmarked?

To participate, simply click on the human capital areas for which your organization will complete benchmark surveys and add to your cart.

Who is eligible to participate?

Participation is open to all human capital practitioners regardless of affiliation with The Conference Board. Members of the public are invited to participate for $299.00 USD per benchmarking category.

Special note for Members of The Conference Board:

  • Human Capital Center member organizations have already received a communication regarding their complimentary access to all categories; if you have questions, please contact your Conference Board representative.

  • Human Capital Center Council member organizations have already received a communication regarding their complimentary access to the benchmark category that aligns with their Council; additional categories are available for $299.00 USD per benchmarking category.

How are honorees selected?

Honorees will be selected by expert panels in each category, drawn from senior executives who are members of the Human Capital Center, its advisory board, our senior research fellows and our human capital research staff. Those who judge a benchmark specialty area are ineligible to participate in that category. No external services provider will participate in the selection process.

Human capital benchmark honorees will be notified in Q3 2020 and honored at related events throughout the year. Further, the innovative work of honoree companies will be featured in case studies across the human capital spectrum.
