PeopleCap is a boutique firm specializing in helping organizations develop People Strategies aligned with their goals.
The essential insight that led to PeopleCap’s founding was the belief that an organization’s People Strategy should be considered equal to their operating and financial strategies. PeopleCap’s principals know from experience that good and bad workplaces are products of intentional choices and management. A workplace in which employees feel happy, productive, respected, safe, and engaged in meaningful work will be inherently more productive, which has real implications for a company’s profitability. PeopleCap can identify when and if this is not an employee’s experience and offers the objectivity, experience, and capacity to develop logical action plans to remedy these situations.
In addition, a well-defined People Strategy is another element of managing risk in business, not unlike fraud assessment – most executives would much rather invest in audits and investigations of their company’s accounting than pay the costly penalties for fraud discovered too late. Companies should regard their People Strategy in the same way: sustaining what works and repairing what doesn’t before valued employees depart, underperform, disrupt the working environment, or create other distractions.
