Human Capital Valuation and ISO Reporting

What is it?

HCMI's Human Capital Financial Statement (HCF$) is a comprehensive reporting framework that values the business impact of human capital in every stage of the talent management lifecycle and provides the key metrics to meet the ISO Human Capital Reporting Standards. HCF$ includes three unique statements:

  • Human Capital Impact Statement: measures the quarterly or annual impact of human capital on financial performance.


  • Human Capital Asset Statement: quantifies the total value of the workforce by job category


  • Human Capital Flow Statement: traces the flow of human capital showing where and how it is allocated and used

What are the benefits?

HCF$ details the cost, impact and return on all areas of investment a company makes in its talent. It also  meets the ISO Human Capital Reporting Standards. Use HCF$ to answer these questions:


  • How can we model our workforce to optimize cost, profit and productivity?


  • What is driving our Total Cost of Workforce and how is it trending? 


  • What is our workforce productivity? Is it increasing, decreasing or static?


  • What is the differential human capital ROI of different job roles?

Workforce Productivity and HR Benchmarking

Workforce Productivity Benchmarking uses HCMI’s advanced set of human capital metrics and over 10,000 company global benchmark database to quantify overall workforce productivity, compare relative performance to peers, highlight positive workforce trends and identify potential problem areas for future improvement. Include HR performance benchmarking to compare your performance against best practice to identify areas where you can improve.

Get these key questions answered:


  • What is our workforce productivity, how do we rank and are we improving? 

  • What is our Total Cost of Workforce, and how is it trending?

  • What is our ROI of investment in workforce?

  • Can we model our workforce to optimize cost, profit and productivity?

Why Benchmark Workforce Productivity?

Organizations need smart and effective employees to compete.  For this reason, understanding and quantifying human capital is critical for success and future growth. However, traditional financial statements contain little or no information on the workforce which makes it nearly impossible to benchmark an organization’s productivity and talent management effectiveness.  


Benchmarking and trending human capital metrics against best-in-class organizations can provide critical insights to optimize your organization’s human capital to drive business results. 


Workforce Analytics Capability Assessment

HCMI conducts a multi-dimensional workforce analytics assessment of current state capabilities vs. best practices in the areas of workforce data, systems, tools, standards and processes. The output includes a summary of strengths, improvement areas, risks and opportunities.


Also available is a customized analytics roadmap incorporating assessment results and stakeholder input received through interviews and focus groups. The roadmap outlines suggested action steps, milestones and deliverables to build and sustain a workforce analytics infrastructure and decision-support capability.
