Investing In Your Company's Human Capital

Investing In Your Company's Human Capital: Strategies To Avoid Spending Too Little--Or Too Much

by Jack J. Phillips
 The importance of an organization's human capital -- its people -- cannot be overstated or overlooked, but like any other asset, it must be carefully managed and monitored. The people in a company reflect the investment not only of money, but also of the time dedicated to developing and executing projects and programs. Investing in Your Company's Human Capital presents five strategies for establishing appropriate levels of investment -- monetary and otherwise -- in workforce initiatives.

The Workforce Scorecard

The Workforce Scorecard: Managing Human Capital To Execute Strategy
by Mark A. Huselid, Brian E. Becker, Richard W. Beatty
  The Workforce Scorecard argues that current management and human resource practices hinder employees' ability to contribute to strategic goals. To maximize the power of their workforce, organizations must meet three challenges: view their workforce in terms of contribution rather than cost; replace benchmarking metrics with measures that differentiate levels of strategic impact; and make line managers and HR professionals jointly responsible for executing workforce initiatives.

edited by Casey Ichniowski, David I. Levine, Craig Olson, George Strauss.
  This volume contributes to a growing consensus about effective workplace practices. The collection combines detailed studies of single industries (automobile assembly, apparel, and machine tools) with cross-industry studies of financial performance. Compared to most past investigations, the research here has better measures of both workplace practices and organizational performance. The contributors find that systems of innovative human resource management practices can have large effects on business performance.

The Human Equation : Building Profits by Putting People First

The Human Equation : Building Profits by Putting People First

Jeffrey Pfeffer
  Instead of cutting costs as a means to increase profits, companies should focus more on building revenue by relying on solid people-management skills. Through dozens of examples, Pfeffer demonstrates that successful companies worry more about people and the competence in their organizations than they do about having the right strategy. Pfeffer contends that the strategy part is relatively easy--it's the day-to-day execution that's hard. Companies that understand the relationship between people and profits are the ones that usually win in the long run.
