The Covid-19 crisis is accelerating a trend already well under way: the need for CEOs to have a strategic and systematic approach to human capital management and metrics that engage all stakeholders—employees, customers, distribution and supply chain partners, and communities, etc.—in the organization’s brand, culture, goals and objectives. Over the last year, the World Economic Forum, the Business Roundtable, the Embankment Project led by the Rothschild family; Larry Fink of Blackrock; the hedge fund investor Paul Tudor Jones and his Just Capital outreach group—have all espoused a new charter for capitalism that focuses on achieving sustainable organizational goals by strategically addressing the needs of all stakeholders, not just shareholders. At least $17 trillion in investment capital is now focused on ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) investing, and ESG funds have not only outperformed the general indices during the recent crash and over the last eight years, but more money is flowing into them since the Covid-19 crisis than any other category, according to Morningstar.
What many leaders lack is any training on how to develop and implement a strategic and systematic human capital plan with clear metrics and a measurable way of engaging all stakeholders in the organization’s brand, culture, and goals.
An HR visionary will share how the field can profit from this unprecedented convergence of trends favoring a new focus on people.
