Human Capital Development (HCD) is a talent management consultancy dedicated to helping purpose-driven companies and nonprofit organizations reach their next level of success. We help you to achieve this by focusing our services on the single most important element of your success, people!
HCD is based in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario but works with clients throughout Canada.
Organizational success is not achieved by having the biggest facilities, newest technology or even the best ideas. It’s achieved by having the most engaged and empowered employees. We provide our clients with innovative solutions for improving talent management at a fraction of the cost of employee turnover or disengagement. We have the experience and tools to achieve your talent management goals quickly and affordably.
Human Capital Development focuses on maintaining 5 core values.
Integrity – When we say we are going to do something, we do it.
Collaboration – Wherever possible, we are committed to collaboration with as many of our clients’ members as possible. Inclusion and collaboration are the true keys to lasting success. Succeed Together.
Empathy – Our work is considerate of the client’s entire human capital ecosystem. The impact of our work and recommendations are considered carefully.
Learning – The fields of HR and Talent Management are continually evolving. As new methodologies begin to form, we will serve our clients best by improving our own abilities and knowledge.
Value – We will provide our clients value in all the work we do. From individual coaching sessions to large organizational analysis, we will work to provide practical financial value for our clients.
Initial consultations for our services are free (and convenient.)
During this mutual “discovery” phase, we listen carefully to your comments and concerns so our proposals and work offer focused solutions for your specific issues.
