 Delivering on the Promise

Delivering on the Promise

(Simon & Schuster, 1998) Business has long struggled with the notion of “human capital,” but do companies really know the value of their people? All too frequently, companies lay off thousands of workers to boost share price while, at the same time, their annual reports promise that “people are our greatest asset!” Now, for the first time, human capital experts Brian Friedman, James Hatch, and David M. Walker show how companies can deliver on this promise. They reveal how Arthur Andersen’s breakthrough five-stage framework, “Human Capital Appraisal,” enables managers to measure, manage, and leverage their companies’ investment in people.
