Human Capital Management Systems

What are the right systems to put in place to attract, select, develop, and retain talent, while fostering a culture of continuous improvement and support?

HC_Wheel-centerBattelle for Kids has worked with school districts across the country to implement various human capital strategies that empower and support employees to meet organizational goals. We believe that comprehensive human capital management systems (HCMS) are critical to recruiting and retaining top talent and ensuring equitable access to excellent educators. 

Recognizing that schools need knowledgeable and skilled human capital professionals now more than ever, Battelle for Kids collaborated with the American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) to develop a certification program for human capital leaders in education. The program is rooted in new professional standards that outline competencies for human capital leaders in four core areas of a comprehensive HCMS:

  • Performance Excellence: Defining strategic goals, aligning efforts to address those goals, and using data to drive improvement
  • Strategic Staffing: Recruiting and selecting staff through a strategic, data-driven approach
  • Talent Management & Development: Providing resources and support to help educators improve their practice
  • Culture & Total Rewards: Fostering a culture where employees feel valued and engaged

Recruitment and Selection

You need the right teachers on your team to ensure the best possible learning experience for students. We can help you build your brand as part of a comprehensive recruitment strategy. We'll also help you implement a consistent selection process to identify the best fit for your culture—using multiple data points—to select the right candidate.

Career Pathways

Once you have the right people for the job, how do you onboard them? How do you develop and retain them? We help school systems develop career pathways, ensuring that educators have meaningful opportunities to learn, grow, and succeed.

Strategic Compensation

Excellence should be recognized. Schools across the country are adopting innovative recognition programs and compensation models that reward teachers for their hard work and success in the classroom. If you’re ready to align your compensation system with goals for improvement, we can help you design, gather stakeholder feedback, and implement a model that is fair, transparent, and aligns with your school system's priorities and culture.
