About HCI

You believe your HR team's work drives better talent and business outcomes. So do we. 

You want to solve your organization's most pressing challenges. We work on your behalf to find solutions.

You need to grow in your career. HCI can help.

About Us

We founded HCI 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 outperform others.
  • Human Resources and talent management professionals with the right strategic skill sets and mindsets are uniquely positioned to enable organizations to do this.

The key to this success lies in HR professionals’ ability to become strategic partners in their business by planning, recruiting, engaging, and developing their people. Since 2004, we have built our research-based learning resources on your behalf to achieve that mission. Our certifications, conferences, and on-demand content build strategic capabilities that drive personal and organizational transformation.
