SEC's Clayton says companies should tell investors how employees are being managed

3 May 2019 9:58pm
US public companies should give investors more information about how they attract, train, and keep employees, US Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton said, while stopping short of endorsing a federal disclosure requirement.

“If I’m an investor looking at businesses today, I want to know what you’re doing with your human talent — how you’re growing your human talent, how you’re accessing new talent, how you’re retaining existing talent,” he said at a Washington conference* yesterday. “I’d like to see companies engage with investors around this.”

But Clayton expressed wariness about requiring across-the-board disclosure measures for companies.
