Human Capitalism recognizes the importance of Human Capital in company success, both

  1. in attracting, nurturing and utilizing that Human Capital to build strong, profitable enterprises, and
  2. in sharing the financial rewards of the company’s success with that Human Capital.

The first part (effectively utilizing Human Capital) has become the focus of management in a growing number of companies. For others, it’s just now beginning. The second part (sharing the financial rewards with Human Capital) has been a focus of only a few (mostly privately-held) companies,. Human Capitalism is based on an understanding of Human Economics.

Human Economics is a description of how today's world works. It recognizes the central and growing role of human energy.

Applied Human Economics is the Management Science of growing and utilizing Human Energy Capital to build and lead successful companies.

Human Economics recognizes that ...

  • Human Capital is now the primary driver of the wealth creation process.

  • Human Capital consists not only of Intellectual Capital, but also of Spiritual Capital. Just as in life, so also in business, the complete human being consists of body (labor), mind (intellectual capital) and spirit (spiritual capital). See Spiritual Capital.

  • The Human ingredient is the core of the company, not merely a cost-based resource.

  • Companies are a set of human relationships and energy that flows through them, not merely a set of resources and transactions.

  • Work best contributes to corporate achievement when designed to enhance individual self-actualization and to stimulate expression of the full range of human talent and spirit.

  • When both the Material and Human dimensions are honored, integrated and balanced, companies are healthier and more prosperous.

  • Effective Leaders energize and inspire people toward shared goals. Leaders' beliefs, values and relationships are as important in this process as are their decisions and actions.
