About Us

We founded HCI on the principle that strategic Human Capital Management is the most powerful lever for performance and growth. We believe that your talent strategies and partnerships with the business create value and improve people's experience at work. 

Since 2004, HCI’s research-based learning solutions have helped leaders, human resource and talent management professionals plan for, acquire, engage, and develop their people. In class, online, or in house, we equip HR with the capabilities to translate strategy into results.
