Companies have promoted very proudly that “people are their most important asset.” But behind closed doors, they managed human capital as an expense. Recent changes, however, at The Securities and Exchange Commission now say “put up or be shut up!” Public companies are now required to disclose information about “human capital resources.” The lines between old-school workforce management and bottom-line growth are merging. While this new requirement currently only applies to public companies, it is not a stretch to say this will affect businesses large and small, public and private. What metrics should human resources start tracking today to comply with the demands of the modern marketplace? This week we reached out to Solange Charas, PhD., Founder and CEO of HCMoneyball and Distinguished Principal Research Fellow at The Conference Board, will share what this means for the future of Human Capital Management.
Our second segment features a favorite passion topic of Geeks Geezers Googlization - candidate and employee experience. There is no better resource than UX and CX strategist Debbie Levitt, “the Mary Poppins of CX/UX” and Chief Experience Officer at Delta CX. She recently shared that “hiring for UX and CX jobs is a freaking disaster.” Descriptions are ambiguous, expectations are unrealistic, and screening is often not aligned with the skill requirements of the job. Debbie’s solution? She recently wrote an 8+ hour training with 50 videos (Attracting and Retaining CX and UX Talent) to help HR and Recruiters learn more about UX and CX and how they can attract and retain great talent to their companies.
