Human Capital and Leadership Initiative

Human Capital is the foremost strategic lever for enterprises to perform, grow and deliver sustainable stakeholder outcomes. Almost all CEOs agree that Human Capital honed and harnessed well, significantly enhances firm performance. Yet, our readiness to develop and deploy human capital is woefully inadequate. Businesses are faced with the challenge of designing and deploying Human Capital strategies that get our workforce to be future ready.

There is an urgent need for industry-relevant research and education in Human Capital strategy area. Human Capital and Leadership Initiative (HC & LI) was set up at ISB with the objective of providing industry-relevant offerings in research, education and on-going in-career learning.
