Proving the value of HR Investments. Finally.

Clarify, value, and prioritize your HR projects

CHROs need to be able to directly connect talent initiatives and outcomes to business value so they can gauge ROI and better prioritize HR efforts.  This ensures more value-added contribution and credibility throughout the organization.  Our proprietary framework brings this discipline to every project to help leaders clarify, value, and prioritize HR projects by linking them directly to business results.

Our Proprietary Algorithm

By blending deep expertise in finance and talent, decades of practitioner experience inside Fortune 100 firms, and an obsession with using data to make decisions, we embarked on a data-based analysis (The Intellectual Capital Index) that used financial statements and economics to evaluate the return on talent investment and calculate the value of intellectual capital produced in businesses.  

Our book, Talent Valuation: Accelerate Market Capitalization through Your Most Important Asset, is the culmination of that work.  It proves the ability to measure the market value of intellectual capital and the importance of using it to prioritize talent-related efforts.  This lays the foundation for the approach we now bring to every engagement, and it provides a means for consistently making smarter people investments, measuring critical outcomes, and driving continuous, data-based improvements.

For too long, proving the value of HR investments has been an elusive goal. Meaningful connections between talent initiatives and business outcomes have centered around soft measures of questionable relevance outside of HR teams.  Our approach breaks this cycle and unleashes truly strategic and business relevant talent investments.
