Foreword by Jac Fitz-enz, author of The ROI of Human Capital

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 book addresses four overarching questions:

  • How much should we invest in human capital, and is it possible to spend too much?
  • Why is it important to invest (and invest properly) in human capital?
  • What measures should be monitored? (the author identifies 24)
  • What are the roles of the CEO and other executives and senior team members?
A practical approach to an often mishandled asset, Investing in Your Company's Human Capital is a valuable tool for driving any enterprise's bottom line.
