EEA Creates Curriculum for CFO.University
The EEA is creating the first formal learning and certification program on Human Capital Management, Measurement, Employee Engagement ROI, and Compliance for chief financial officers for CFO.University, a leading community for CFOs that will qualify CFO.University members for an EEA CFO certification and annual membership status. This new course at CFO.University is focused specifically on the needs of the CFOs seeking to understand the basic principles involved with managing, measuring, and reporting on all aspects of human capital and employee engagement.
Reflecting the need for CFOs to have a greater understanding of human capital management, measurement, and return-on-investment of expenditures in employee engagement, the EEA has created a new membership category, education, and certification program for CFOs exclusively available through CFO.University
The EEA course addresses the value generated by corporate stakeholders starting with employees. It includes the need to anticipate the growing pressures from investors, as well coming disclosure requirements, human capital risks factors, ethics management, and opportunities for safe harbor protections through adherence to recognized human capital management and employee engagement practices.
, the only advanced education community designed for CFOs, is offering the EEA online classes specifically focused on the needs of CFOs on an exclusive basis and include an optional EEA certification and membership. CFOs can access the full CFO education program at CFO.University on-demand, which covers the key information they need to know as well as prepare for the optional EEA certification. The EEA certification is designed for those CFOs who believe certification will add value to their organizations or practice. CFOs committed to positioning themselves as stewards of human capital and measurement can join the EEA as an individual or organization to achieve a basic or advanced certification. The CFO.University
classes will go live in August 2020.
The 10-hour self-paced program includes such topics as:
• What is human capital management, how it relates to talent management, and why does the subject matter to CFOs?
• The economic and other benefits of a strategic and systematic approach to human capital management.
• What is employee engagement and why has it failed over the last 20 years?
• What is a human capital audit and how to conduct one?
• ISO 30414 human capital reporting and other standards.
• Concrete Human capital scorecards that will help improve organizational performance.
• Established methods to measure the return-on-investment of employee engagement tactics, from training, coaching, and communications, to recognition, loyalty, incentives, diversity, and other efforts.
• Information on human capital disclosures increasingly desired by investors, customers, and talent, including human capital external and internal reporting standards.
• The impact of human capital on valuations.
CFOs can earn an optional EEA Certification through an exercise that helps them apply these principles to their own organizations or expertise through a confidential process.
, founded by Steve Rosvold, who has over 21 years of senior financial management at Conagra and Cargill, is “a global professional development community dedicated to growing finance leaders by providing tools and learning opportunities suited to individual needs. Our focus is on delivering practical, convenient, performance-enhancing learning, economically.” The community consists of member-scholars, companies and trusted advisors committed to the development of finance leaders.”
Explains Rosvold, “CFOs have always had a some role in human resources management, but the trend began to accelerate over the last few years as more investors began to ask questions about people; when the concept of Stakeholder Capital and the need to address all stakeholders was popularized by the Business Roundtable; when European regulators imposed human capital disclosure requirements on larger companies, and the US Securities & Exchange commission proposed human capital disclosures. CFO.University
is about keeping our members at the cutting-edge of business trends and how they can add value to their corporations and clients through knowledge and insight.”
