Podcast: Telling Your Human Capital Story | The Conference Board

HR Effectiveness Podcast | Webinar

Two weeks ago, I made a post about The Conference Board’s recently released report, Telling Your Human Capital Story. The 20-page report guides organizations on how they can tailor the messages of their human capital story to different stakeholder groups (e.g., investors, current and prospective and current employees, etc.) while still drawing from a single source of truth. As a supplement to that report, here is a 30-minute podcast episode of CEO Perspectives, where Steve Odland (The Conference Board President and CEO) and Rebecca Ray (Executive Vice President of Human Capital at The Conference Board) discuss how businesses can—and should—tell the story of their human capital strategy. Rebecca helps answer questions such as: 1) Why is it increasingly important to measure and share your human capital strategy with various stakeholders? 2) What should businesses consider disclosing about their human capital? 3) How should businesses determine which metrics to look at and which to share? 4) What are the key components of a human capital strategy? 5) How can you create a narrative around your strategy and communicate it to a variety of stakeholders? These two resources provide several ideas for how organizations can develop a human capital narrative that meets the unique needs of different stakeholders.
