Humanidei provides comprehensive human capital solutions that help credit unions become workplaces that work for today’s workforce. Credit unions work with Humanidei to integrate their most important asset- their human capital- into organizational growth plans and win the war for talent.
- Develop human capital strategies that maximize the unique value of humans in a digital world: When every individual is able to contribute at his or her highest capacity, the product is a diverse, equitable and inclusive organization positioned to reach full potential.
- Create cultures where people feel open about who they are as individuals, thereby leveraging the humanity of their workforce.
- Empower staff for success through planning, individual and team coaching, succession planning, and executive and volunteer recruiting.
Inclusive credit unions are the employer and volunteer cause of choice for mission-driven people ready to use their unique time and talents to make an impact.
Help credit unions take action to build inclusive workplaces that leverage human capital to its highest potential.
What’s In a Name?
This name is a play on humanity, a word defined as both the fact or condition of being human and human beings, collectively.
Emphasis on the word Human:
The best organizations leverage the humanity of their workforce, where individuals are comfortable bringing their unique individual value to work and contributing at his or her highest capacity.
Use of the root -dei
The adjustment to the end of the word—the use of –dei rather than -ty— is a nod to one of the most important and differentiated areas where Humanidei consults: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategies that help companies achieve better business results.
Who Do We Work With?
Humanidei is designed for organizations that believe their most valuable asset is their people, and that are committed to putting this belief in action. They know their path to long-term relevance is through leveraging human capital and understand that yesterday’s workplaces do not work for today’s workforce. They are eager to make cultural changes that will help them win the war for talent.
Organizations will choose to work with Humanidei when they are ready to tap into the greatest strengths of each individual in their organization, increase the diversity of their teams, build a culture where the best talent feels at home, or create a structure that leverages human capital to implement change and achieve ambitious growth goals.
