The focus on human capital and talent in corporate governance is intensifying, as more stakeholders led by large institutional investors seek to understand how companies are integrating human capital considerations into the overarching strategy to create long-term value. After all, a company’s intangible assets, which include human capital and culture, are now estimated to comprise a significant portion of a company’s market value. At the same time, there is an ongoing cultural shift brought about by new generations of workers, digitization, automation and other megatrends related to the future of work. In this new era, it is critical for management teams and boards to keep pace with this transformation and consider redefining long-term value and corporate purpose. Creating value for multiple stakeholders, including employees, will ultimately help build and sustain shareholder value over the long term.
