Paul Kearns has been specialising in putting a hard value on “human intangibles” for more than 25 years. As a professional in the field of human capital management, he was one of the founders of the Maturity Institute (MI), a multi-disciplinary body he now chairs, which measures organisational effectiveness and produces comparative company ratings. MI has produced clear evidence to reveal strong links between corporate governance, human capital management and company valuation. This has drawn attention from the investment community and regulators at the New York Fed and the Bank of England. Paul is also a prolific writer of books and articles concentrating on professionalism and effective strategies in human capital management and has been teaching at executive and MBA level for many years.
In response to Board Agenda’s interview with Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild on inclusive capitalism, Paul Kearns of the Maturity Institute continues the debate with the idea that “inclusive” really should mean inclusive.
