Abstract

Theorie und Unternehmenspraxis weisen auf die hohe Relevanz des Humankapitals für den Unternehmenserfolg hin. Investitionen in die Ressource Mensch werden im Jahresabschluss allerdings mit wenigen Ausnahmen als Aufwendungen erfasst. Das Humankapital ist somit nicht als Vermögensgegenstand in der Bilanz für die Adressaten sichtbar, weshalb eine verbale Darstellung des Humankapitals geeignet erscheint. Vor diesem Hintergrund dokumentiert der vorliegende Beitrag die Qualität der verbalen mitarbeiterbezogenen Unternehmenspublizität der HDAX-Unternehmen, welche mithilfe eines auf Basis der bestehenden Literatur entwickelten Scoringmodells ermittelt wird. Darüber hinaus wird analysiert, welche Determinanten die Qualität der Humankapital-Berichterstattung beeinflussen. Als wesentliche Erkenntnis kann festgehalten werden, dass trotz der hohen Bedeutung die Qualität der mitarbeiterbezogenen Publizität in den Geschäftsberichten eher gering ausfällt. So wird ein nennenswerter Anteil wesentlicher Aspekte in den Berichten überhaupt nicht angesprochen. Vor allem Aspekte, die für eine breite Anzahl von Stakeholdern wichtig sind, werden selten thematisiert. Wesentliche Determinanten der Qualität der Humankapital-Berichterstattung stellen mit der Höhe des Personalaufwands sowie der Bedeutung patentgeschützten Wissens unternehmensbezogene Charakteristika dar.
