ISO Human Capital Reporting Standards Just Published – What Do You Need to Know?

Updated: Feb 27, 2020

April 29 1.00-2.00 pm MT

The international Standards Organization (ISO) published their first standards for human capital reporting in December covering 54 measures. The document provides guidance for internal and external reporting by both large and small organizations. While the recommendation is for voluntary disclosure, early adopters are expected to start disclosing in the next several years and some countries will mandate adoption of the standards, including public reporting. The standard is the culmination of a great deal of work by an ISO working group representing experts from numerous countries over the last three years led by Stefanie Becker from Germany.

Learn from Jeff Higgins, CEO of the Human Capital Management Institute (HCMI), to get an insider’s view of the standards and the process that led to their creation as well as the reasons why the standards are necessary. Jeff has been an active member of the ISO working group since its inception. Jeff explores the following:

  • The need for human capital reporting standards in general and more specifically the need for public disclosure of key human capital measures

  • The process used by ISO to create the standards

  • The types of measures covered

  • Prospects for adoption and steps organizations should begin to take now to be ready
