“Based on our Organizational Maturity Ratings (OMR) for a sample of 60 of the largest (market cap) companies quoted on the London stock exchange today, the average score for their capability in human capital management is 51.5%.

A much more professional attitude towards human capital management (HCM) has demonstrated the creation of significant increases in company value (Goldman Sachs AA-, Toyota A+, Admiral A+). The top 150 quoted companies currently have a combined market value of over £2 trillion: every 1% improvement is worth £20 billion.
