Talent as a critical enabler of long term value creation
Market capitalization of public companies is increasingly driven by intangibles, but which ones? The Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism is tackling that fundamental question through the Embankment Project for Inclusive Capitalism (EPIC).
The EPIC project had 31 participants: 22 asset managers and asset owners with US$30 trillion under management and 9 public companies with US$2 trillion in market capitalization. Clearly, investors are calling companies to become more long-term oriented as a strategic opportunity to define a value creation model. Investors want to know more about human capital management and organizational cultural alignment.
The panel will review the approach and conclusions of EPIC as it relates to talent. What is the market looking for and how shall we measure progress? How shall companies in our industry articulate their human capital value narrative, especially in an era of scarce talent?
