I’d like to ask you to read through the latest draft of Guidelines for Reporting Human Capital to Investors and submit a comment ( not here, but on the link provided. ) A few notes:
1. The team that developed it was 160 people strong, with economists, financial folks, hr analytics folks, generalists, and risk managers.
2. We know that it’s impossible to factor every critical HC metric for every type of business into a standard. The ANSI method discourages this. It looks for a minimally effective standard. If we knew more today about a company than yesterday, would these be the 6 items we would choose?
3. In a world far removed from most of our everyday lives, this type of disclosure has already been written, but without HRs perspective. The intangibles and sustainability community are already releasing data like this. But we can help make it better with more expertise in human capital.
And finally, the most critical.. ANSI standards are voluntary. No one is forcing us to disclose data we wish not to.
Please do shoot me questions or post them below!
