Human Capital Watch: The New Role for Boards in Human Capital Management

NOVEMBER 18, 2020


With the dramatic events of 2020 highlighting the importance of human capital management (HCM), new SEC disclosure requirements, and rising investor expectations, boards are focusing on HCM as never before. But many boards are struggling with the concepts of HCM – what it is, why it matters, how to measure it, and what the board’s role should be in optimizing it.

Part I of this two-part webcast series will address these critical questions and provide practical insights for boards in addressing this new era of human capital management.

  • What is human capital management and why does it matter?
  • What is the board’s role in optimizing human capital management performance?
  • How are organizations thinking about handling qualitative and quantitative human capital metrics?

Who Should Attend: CEO’s, board members, and HR and governance professionals who want to learn more about the role of the board with respect to human capital management and how to measure it.
