Traditional people management strategies are underwhelming and outdated. They fail to keep up with the pace of technology, evolving skill sets, and an increasingly global and remote workforce.

The Intersection of Human Capital and Business

Effective talent management is hard work. People are complex, and the individual and collective issues within the workforce require a new set of skills and a more holistic approach to driving human capital. Change is constant, and HR practitioners must keep up to remain relevant.

HCI's Human Capital Strategist Certification Program is a training and certification course designed to address the strategic issues at the intersection of human capital and business: maximizing talent strategies, implementing strategic workforce planning, engaging talent, and developing employees to their fullest potential.

Why Should You Attend?

Theory, Practice, and Feedback HCS is built on a foundation of talent management research and best practices, and is guided by HCI’s Talent Management model. Throughout the class, you will participate with your peers in activities designed to help you practice new skills and apply them to your own work. HCI facilitators will provide developmental feedback to ensure you are learning new skills and are confident about how to use them on the job.

What You’ll Learn HCS is a highly interactive course that prepares new and entry-level human capital practitioners to move beyond tactical skills and into more strategic roles within their organizations and careers. You will see firsthand that effective talent management practices are critical to ensuring organizational strength and financial returns. You will explore HR in the context of the business, and learn how to align your work to support and inform organizational goals.

HCI’s extensive network of organizations, subject matter experts, and evidence-based research in the human capital field supplement this curriculum. You will hear from companies like PricewatershouseCooper about the global trends in talent you need to know about, and learn how organizations like Airbnb have redesigned their recruitment strategy. This course will help you build a roadmap to influence human capital management drivers and create a competitive advantage in your organization.

Learning objectives:

  • Explain how good talent management is a competitive advantage and its worth to your organization

  • Determine the strategies and processes necessary to move from tactical to strategic talent management

  • Identify best practices for each of the components and how you might use them at your organization

Who should attend

The course is designed specifically for senior decision makers in your organization, with a focus on strategic business issues and topics rather than narrower traditional processes and functional issues of HR. Some of the roles that will benefit from obtaining the Human Capital Strategist designation include:

  • Human Resources - Human Resources professionals must understand and become expert in Strategic Talent Management in order to advance their careers and add value to their companies.

  • Recruitment and Staffing - Today’s corporate recruitment professionals must understand how their roles connect to talent management requirements across the lifecycle.

  • OD and Corporate Education - Corporate transformation from industrial era management practices to global economy talent leadership is now a central focus for OD and corporate education leaders.

  • Line Managers and Executives - Knowing how to acquire, engage, align, deploy, develop, inspire, empower and lead highly talented people are critical business skills for every leader, at every level of the enterprise.
