Die derzeitige Ausgangslage sowie Ziele und Trends, denen sich das HCR gegenüber sieht, werden verdeutlicht. * Die Systematik des HCR10, welche unmissverständlich klar macht, welche Kennzahlen einen Bericht über Personal (sei es im Geschäfts-, im Nachhaltigkeits- oder im Personalbericht) aussagekräftig machen wird im zweiten Abschnitt vorgestellt. * Der dritte Abschnitt widmet sich der konkreten Ausgestaltung des HC-Reportings. Anhand von illustrativen Beispielen wird verdeutlicht, wie die Berichterstattung der einzelnen geforderten Kennzahlen aussehen kann. * Wer bei der Erstellung eines Berichts welche Aufgaben übernehmen und welche Daten liefern sollte, wird im vierten Abschnitt erörtert. Zudem wird diskutiert, welchen Nutzen ein dem HCR10 entsprechendes Reporting für diverse Interessengruppen wie Personalleiter, Aufsichtsräte, Wirtschaftsprüfer oder Bewerber hat. * Im abschließenden fünften Abschnitt wird eine Vision für das HC-Reporting in Deutschland formuliert. Über die Autoren Prof. Dr. Christian Scholz ist Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Organisation, Personal- und Informationsmanagement an der Universität des Saarlandes.
