Understanding Human Capital Helps Companies Outcompete – Mike Piker

Published on 2014-12-02

HUMAN CAPITAL IS AS IMPORTANT AS FINANCIAL CAPITAL. So say Mike Piker, Vice President of Lenovo. He believes that the way companies measure and deploy talent is as important as the way capital is moved around, to out-compete and out manoeuvre their competition. Piker believes that the new science of HR involves predictive workplace analytics, which allows human capital to become the weapon to outcompete.
Prior to joining Lenovo, Mike was a Partner and lead international consultant for Mercer based in Shanghai, China and New York, USA. His other corporate HR experience spans Syngenta, Alcoa, and Cisco in various executive roles. His other consulting HR experience spans Buck Consultants and ORC Worldwide in several regional and client facing roles.
Mike is a co-author of the report Talent Mobility Good Practices – Collaboration at the Core of Driving Economic Growth which was produced in collaboration with the World Economic Forum and presented at the World Economic Forum on East Asia in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.
