Why the name Elite Human Capital?

The three words “Elite Human Capital” embody the core focus of our business which is to assist clients acquire and retain high quality talent who add value. The name also reflects our expertise with helping ambitious individuals to elevate their career.

“But ‘elite’ is a tricky word, so let’s be careful to define our terms. In this case, the elite are not the rich or the one percent or the stars of stage and screen. In the historical context, it was those with the interest in and capacity to use the scientific and mechanical ideas in the Encyclopedie. It was they who set the groundwork for growth in the coming industrial era. While they may also have been rich, that wasn’t the point.” Entrepreneurs, Economic Growth, and the Enlightenment.
