Human Capital Reporting and Disclosure

While Human Capital can be a differentiated value driver, most organizations face challenges in measuring and reporting its impact on the business. HCMI's Human Capital Reporting & Disclosure services set the global standards in leading and educating organizations on what to measure, what it means to the business, and how to report and disclose to meet voluntary and regulatory compliance standards. 

Why Human Capital Reporting and Disclosure

While some leading global companies voluntarily disclose extensive human capital information as part of their Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting, most organizations report very limited information. 
 
This will now change with the new U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) Human Capital Disclosure requirements for all companies listed on the US exchanges. Since the SEC did not specify an exact set of measurements many companies are scrambling to identify what and how to measure to accurately reflect Human Capital’s impact on the business. 

One approach is to adopt the ISO 30414 Human Capital Reporting and Disclosure Guidelines. ISO 30414 provides a set of recommended human capital metrics and shows how to calculate them. We believe it can serve as a “safe harbor” approach absent further SEC direction.

Which Human Capital Metrics to Report and Disclose

SEC's 2020 Requirements

Under the new SEC rules, companies listed on U.S. exchanges will have to disclose information about their human capital including “human capital measures or objectives that the registrant focuses on in managing the business.” 
 
The SEC didn't specify which metrics to report, instead individual companies need to decide what to disclose regarding the impact of human capital impact on their business results for areas such as talent attraction, talent retention and talent development among other areas talent impacts business results.  

ISO 30414

The ISO 30414 recommends 23 metrics divided into the following 9 categories:

  1. Compliance and ethics

  2. Workforce costs 

  3. Workforce diversity 

  4. Leadership 

  5. Organizational safety, health, and well-being
