Abstract: This bulletin summarises the findings from a six-month study, commissioned by the CIPD, investigating the ways in which ten major UK-based firms from a variety of sectors, evaluate their human capital. It aimed to relate the theoretical aspects of human capital to actual practice and identify the significant issues for managers who want to better understand their organisation's human capital. The research aimed to investigate the growing disparity between the contribution that human capital makes to business performance and the existing means of identifying and valuing that contribution. The research design recognised the lack of consensus as to what human capital means, how it is measured and how it is managed. The brief for the researchers was therefore to identify some common principles upon which the CIPD could build practical guidance for practitioners.
