About Us


Human Capital was launched in June 1997 and created a niche of its own as India 's first business magazine on HR, reflecting views, insights, issues and successful practices in HR. Today, Human Capital is a strong brand in the HR space in the country and is respected, not just for its legacy and as a pioneer in the HR magazine industry, but also for its consistency, commitment to rich content, strong editorial ethics and widest reach among a niche, but huge HR audience.


Human Capital's tagline 'realising business strategy through people' is truly reflected in its content… meticulously planned, well researched articles on workable solutions to real people issues; cutting- edge HR practices of progressive organizations; and thought-provoking views of HR opinion makers on futuristic topics. Only the most selective inputs from HR bigwigs and the choicest contributory articles from HR intellectuals make it to Human Capital. Regular content innovations like 'Debate', 'Persona', 'HR Roundtable' and 'Q&As' give the magazine an edge.


Time and again, Human Capital has demonstrated its leadership by launching and marketing a host of allied products, which have captured audience interest successfully… again all 'firsts' for the HR audience in India…
