Human Capital


Human capital is one of three elements making up intellectual capital which describes the knowledge assets available to an organisation. You’ll find here information on human capital metrics, measurement and reporting and strategic assets.

Visit our Valuing your Talent page for information on a major new research and engagement programme that we're running in collaboration with the UKCES, CMI, CIMA and the RSA to help employers understand how to measure the impact their people have on the performance of their organisation.

Our Human capital blog, aimed at HR professionals and HR analysts, captures the latest thinking, insights and challenges within the human capital space and promotes discussion about HR data and analytical techniques among practitioners and leaders from the profession.
