Roundtable – Cost Center No More

Most companies invest 50% and 60% of gross profit into people! That’s an enormous expense and understanding how to calculate the economic value of these investments and the impact on profitability is a skill every practitioner should have.

Join us as we talk with Solange Charas, PhD., and Founder and CEO of HCMoneyball and Distinguished Principal Research Fellow at The Conference Board and learn the five human capital metrics related to a company’s financial performance. In other words, connecting human capital expenditures to EBITDA.

We will discuss:

  1. The math. How to calculate the five metrics.

  2. Is there a positive or negative return on your company’s human capital investment?

  3. Are the human capital expenditures advancing the company’s desired financial outcomes?

  4. How do you demonstrate over time the impact of the economic value of human capital?

Whether you are someone who is already a practitioner of connecting human capital outcomes to business outcomes, someone who is just getting their toes wet or someone who knows they need more measurement but do not know where to start- this round table is for you!

As always- No sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation.
