Understanding the New SEC Human Capital Disclosure Requirements – and What is Expected from Your Firm

Thursday, December 3, 2020 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. EST

Are you prepared? Do you know how to get ready?

Human Capital disclosure is now part of reporting requirements from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Last year, the SEC published a proposed rule about human capital reporting requirements as part of the Modernization of Regulation S-K Items 101, 103, and 105. On August 25, 2020, Regulation S-K, which focuses on companies’ non-financial reporting requirements, was finalized. At a summary level, the rule requires public companies to provide:

“…a description of a registrant’s human capital resources, including any human capital measures or objectives that the registrant focuses on in managing the business.”

This additional information is now going to be required for organizations to report publicly. While this change is a new requirement from a compliance standpoint, it also offers organizations new opportunities to differentiate in their marketspace through sharing of data and potential impact on investor perception.
