From Human Resource to Human Capital Management

The purpose of this website is to assist IT Line Management and IT HR Business Partners who are wanting to grow from effective Human Resource Management to effective Human Capital Management.

Human Resource Management is NOT the same as Human Capital Management.
In Human Capital Management, the Accountability for certain processes shifts from HR to Line Management. These processes include:

  • Organisation Design
  • Capability Management
  • Competency Management
  • Knowledge Management
  • Career Management
  • Leadership Development
  • Performance Management
  • Employee Engagement
  • Reward Management
  • Workforce and Succession Planning
  • Workforce Analytics

HR Management is essentially about managing the Employee Life Cycle and establishing the policy environment for the management of the organisation’s people. This includes:

  • Organisation Culture Management
  • Compensation Management
  • Employee Benefits Management
  • Recruitment and Selection Management
  • Safety and Security Management
  • Wellness Management
  • Employee Motivation
  • Employee Communication Management
  • Employee Administration Management
  • Training and Development Management
  • Policy Development and Maintenance

These processes remain as important as ever and most HR people will want to stay in this field.  Human Capital Management adds to Employee Life Cycle Management and is about understanding, measuring, and managing the value that the workforce adds to organizational value. Human Resource Management remains responsible for ensuring that relevant policies and processes are in place so that IT Line Management are able to drive organisation success through their people using Human Capital Management processees.

So, this website is for:

  • HR Managers, Consultants and Business Partners who are wanting to grow their skills to IT Human Capital Management, and
  • IT Line Management who want to manage the performance and contribution that their team makes to Organizational Value and Success.

We do this by:

  • Facilitation – helping you to understand, define and reach agreement on what aspect of Human Capital Management are important to you right now
  • Consulting – providing advice and guidance on the different aspects of Human Capital Management, and
  • Coaching – providing guidance and holding management accountable for the agreed deliverables.

We hope that you find the information here useful and informative, and we look forward to a long and continually developing relationship with you.
