Exclusive research by Personnel Today and global consultancy Deloitte shows that, 12 months after Denise Kingsmill published her taskforce’s Accounting for People report, many companies still have a long way to go in implementing its recommendations on human capital management (HCM).
The survey finds that despite an increasing familiarity with the term ‘human capital’, a quarter (27 per cent) of all organisations do not use any measurements. More than 10 per cent of HR professionals admit to never using the term at all.
The latest findings are the second joint survey by Personnel Today and Deloitte on human capital. The first, carried out in September 2002, showed that, despite measuring human capital being regarded as useful by many organisations, only half appeared to be doing it successfully.
