Human Capital Risk Infographic

“Almost everything that can go wrong in a business has a human capital component.” This quote from David Creelman of Creelman Research points out the critical importance of managing human capital risks. Often, risks associated with human actions are given only cursory attention until “something bad happens”. Unfortunately, when one of these risks contributes to a loss, it can be very costly in terms of brand, reputation, morale, or revenue.

Human capital risks commonly stem from these five critical areas:

  1. Complacency
  2. Turnover
  3. Occupational fraud
  4. Catastrophic workplace events
  5. Negligent hiring or retention

This latest infographic summarizes each area and offers tips to help organizations better manage their human capital risks.
