About HCI

We help HR professionals plan, acquire, engage, and develop the talent they need to support their organization’s business strategy and accelerate business results.

Who We Are

Human Capital Institute (HCI) is part of Simplify Compliance. We are the first choice for high-performing HR professionals and teams who are focused on accelerating business results through strategic human capital practices.

What We Believe

HCI was founded in 2004, based on three core beliefs

  • Aligning human capital strategy with business strategy is the greatest accelerator of organizational success.
  • Organizations that align human capital strategy with business strategy perform better than those that don’t.
  • HR professionals and teams with the right strategic skill sets and mindsets are uniquely positioned to enable organizations to do this.
