Date & Time: Thursday, July 15, 2021 2:00 pm ET

Late last year, a new SEC ruling came into effect requiring publicly traded companies to disclose their human capital resources, along with related measures and objectives for achieving business success.
This requirement is a critical opportunity to position people investments in the right light: as amplifiers of performance and strategic business advantage. It also represents an important shift in thinking. Rather than viewing employees as a “cost,” the new requirement is an acknowledgement that employees are valuable assets.
In this webinar, Josh Bersin will discuss highlights from a recently published report on the topic. The discussion will cover recommendations for:
- How the new disclosure requirements create a massive opportunity for HR and business leaders to emphasize the importance of human capital investments
- Practical advice for meeting the new requirements, including the creation of cross-functional teams
- Insight into disclosures from winning talent brands
- Strategies for identifying and prioritizing the metrics and qualitative evidence that best support your company’s story and its vision for the future
Joining the conversation are James Webb, vice president of global people development, engagement, and communications for the Fossil Group, and Sarah Waltman, vice president of talent management and organizational development for Dentsply Sirona. These leaders will share examples of how they have used reporting requirements to differentiate their companies and shape communications to shareholders, board members, and employees.
