DJIA Companies Derive Financial Value from Their People

Talent Drives More than $4 Trillion in Value Across DJIA Companies from Visa to Pfizer

ATLANTA, Nov. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National management consultancy Talent Growth Advisors (TGA) today announced the results of its annual Intellectual Capital Index (ICI) for 2016, a yearly study that measures the specific dollar-figure contributions talent makes to the market value of companies in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). The analysis reveals that a majority of the enterprise value -- on average 88 percent -- is driven by the company’s people instead of its tangible assets, even in companies often perceived as industrial companies such as Caterpillar and Dupont. The analysis also reveals that the overall value of talent-driven intellectual capital across DJIA companies now totals more than $4.3 trillion -- a growth of more than $300 billion over 2015.
