Human Capital Strategist (HCS) Certification

Create a competitive advantage through strategic human capital management

Human Capital Strategist (HCS) Certification

Today’s economy mandates a new approach to doing business. Traditional people management strategies falter in the face of disruptive technology, continually evolving skill sets, and an increasingly global workforce. HCI’s Human Capital Strategist Certification Program is the only training and certification course that addresses strategic issues at the intersection of human capital and business. 

The course is built on a foundation of proven talent management best practices, with practical examples from leading organizations. Learn how McDonald’s transformed its talent practices, how Wal-Mart addressed its most critical onboarding problem, and how FedEx succeeded with innovative new retention strategies for critical employees, among others. This course will help you build a roadmap to integrate crucial talent management drivers across the 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.

With examples from companies like IBM, GE, FedEx, Starbucks, P&G, Microsoft, Marriott, Zappos, John Deer and Toyota, course participants will recognize that the most important way to ensure enduring strength and financial returns is to engage in effective talent management practices.

Over the course of two days, course participants will synthesize research, thought leadership and practical examples of best practices in workforce planning, talent acquisition, engagement, development, deployment, managing and leading talent, talent retention and data and analytics. The course is highly interactive, providing the opportunity for networking with HR leaders across industries.
