Human capital management on InfoBasis summit agenda

Professor William Scott-Jackson, director of the Centre for Applied HR Research at Oxford Brookes Business School, will deliver the opening keynote at the InfoBasis Summit 2006, on 'Measuring human capital for performance benefits'.

Explaining the background and importance of human capital, Professor Scott-Jackson will stress that although human capital is not tangible, it can - and should - be measured.

He said: "Intangible assets are increasingly important as part of a company's value, and human capital often makes up the majority of intangible worth. Yet most organisations struggle to understand or fully utilise the capabilities of their workforce.

The keynote address will consider how to measure people capabilities, and how to link them to organisational strategy. "This is no longer a nice-to have," commented Scott-Jackson. "In the modern economy, understanding the strategic capabilities of your workforce is essential."

The InfoBasis Summit 2006 takes place on 19th September 2006 at Millbank Tower, London, and is organised by skills management company InfoBasis.

Other speakers include Alan Hewitt, Partner at IBM, PA Consulting senior consultant Phil Rice, as well as case studies from Transport for London and Touchpaper.
