About the author


Laura Kellers Queen, EdD has emerged as a leading voice in the Human Capital field. She has quite literally changed the language within these arenas to better reflect and quantify the role and impact of the workforce on corporate performance. "People Alpha" – or the excess return available to investors who recognize talent as strategic business assets -- has arrived and is creating advantages for those who adopt a more systematic, outcome-oriented approach to human capital management. Her book, People Economics: Defining and Measuring the True Value of Human Capital lights the way for those desiring to overcome a blind spot when it comes to assessing and valuing the role of people in the success of business. A 'Jersey-girl' at heart, Laura lives in Bucks County, PA. Loves include travel, street art, camping (yes, in tents), piles of books, gardening, skiing and bicycling. She and her husband, Tim are avid cooks and wine enthusiasts and cherish time with their adult children and fur babies.

People Economics
Defining and Measuring the True Value of Human Capital
by Laura Queen

Overview


This book shatters the barriers between traditional Finance and Human Resources by demonstrating that People Economics is a win-win for both companies and their employees. There have been many attempts to bring clarity to the term 'human capital', People Economics breaks through with common language and a relevant framework. The stories, real-life examples and calculable metrics provide tangible ways to bring human capital measurement to life. ESG and sustainability reporting, corporate transparency and disclosure of human capital measures are rapidly gaining prominence for investors, analysts, regulators and consumers. The United States lags other nations in this field; People Economics offers a path to rapidly accelerate understanding of this complex and challenging arena. It is an essential reference for investors, executives, human resources and finance professionals, and business educators.

  • grounded - it provides a range of organisational case-studies and interviews with senior practitioners
