How much does human capital add to a company’s value?
Abstract: “Human capital” is often one of the most valuable — and difficult to replicate — resources that companies own. It includes a trained and assembled group of workers who know how to operate equipment, follow the company’s policies and procedures, innovate to build new products and services, and work together as a team to achieve the company’s strategic goals. This article explains the types of human capital assets and common ways to value them. A sidebar outlines the top reasons valuators may be asked to value human capital assets.
