Frequently asked questions

Human capital refers to the knowledge and skills employees possess, which a company can use to improve its products, services and brand. Often, employees are the most valuable asset to an organization. 

One important aspect of human capital is Human Capital Management (HCM) – a set of practices and strategies that involve managing the end-to-end employee lifecycle to optimize productivity, improve engagement and enhance business outcomes. 

Adopting a human capital solution often involves significant changes to existing processes, systems, and workflows. Consider the impact on employees, their readiness for change, and the need for effective change management strategies to ensure successful implementation and minimize resistance.

By offering features such as wellbeing initiatives, employee feedback, and recognition programs, a human capital solution creates a supportive and engaging work environment. These features contribute to increased employee satisfaction, loyalty, and motivation, which, in turn, lead to higher retention rates. With a human capital solution in place, organizations can foster a positive employee experience, strengthen their employer brand, and ultimately retain their top talent for long-term success.

Organizations can gain valuable insights into their employees' performance, skills, engagement levels, and overall workforce trends by leveraging human capital data. It helps identify areas for improvement, forecast future workforce needs, and measure the impact of HR initiatives. The insights align their HR efforts with business goals, ultimately driving better outcomes and maximizing the potential of their human capital.

A human capital solution includes monitoring employee engagement and satisfaction, conducting sentiment analysis, and implementing feedback mechanisms to ensure an inclusive and equitable work environment.
