Human Capital Resources Reminders From the SEC
By George Wilson
Thanks to the ever-vigilant Alyson Claybaugh of Intelligize, below are two recent SEC comments focused on human capital resources disclosures. Both comments relate to Form S-1 disclosures:
Employees, page 132
17. Please amend your disclosure to describe any human capital measures or objectives that you focus on in managing your business, if material. See Item 101(c)(2)(ii).
Employees, page 100
2. Please amend your disclosure to provide a more detailed discussion of your human capital resources, including any human capital measures or objectives upon which you focus in managing your business. For example, describe any measures or objectives that address the development, attraction, and retention of personnel. See Item 101(c)(2)(ii) of Regulation S-K. Alternatively, please tell us why you believe you are not required to include this disclosure.
The above comments provide reminders about this now effective requirement in Regulation S-K Item 101:
“A description of the registrant's human capital resources, including the number of persons employed by the registrant, and any human capital measures or objectives that the registrant focuses on in managing the business (such as, depending on the nature of the registrant's business and workforce, measures or objectives that address the development, attraction and retention of personnel).”
As always, your thoughts and comment are welcome!
