Human Capital Development

Touchstone Business Solutions has always been committed to helping businesses develop their people. We are proudly affiliated with LifeThrive to bring you the best in human capital management and development solutions.

As a business owner you rely on data, metrics and measurement in almost every area of your business – Planning, finance, marketing, production, etc. – experience has proven that we make the best decisions when we base them on objective information.

Ironically, one area that most businesses don’t measure effectively is the H-Factor, the human factor. Consider this:

  • In most businesses, people are our single biggest expense category (payroll, benefits, etc.). If we are investing so much in people, shouldn’t we optimize this?
  • Our people are absolutely essential to our value creation – “our single greatest asset.”
  • And research shows that statistically 75% of our “Greatest Challenges” are people challenges.

Yet when it comes to our managing people most companies don’t have a clear picture – they don’t have the data!

We can help! We use objective data driven solutions to develop employee and team potential – Your People. Using the LifeThrive process we have proven solutions for maximizing employee productivity, improving individual and team performance and impacting corporate profitability!
