Human Capital Rating System Available at No Cost

JP Morgan Chase Has Much Room for Improvement, Ratings Find
 
A process for rating the organizational maturity of organizations developed in the United Kingdom is now available at no cost to help organizations “develop a greater understanding and the professional practice of organization maturity and human governance,” according to statement by Maturity Institute (MI) and Organizational Maturity Services (OMS) LLP. Organizations can use the methodology to score themselves, their clients, or companies in which they are considering an investment. See previous ESM article on the Maturity Institute and its OMINDEX.
 
The Maturity Institute recently used the template to rate JP Morgan Chase. Based on a review of filings and public ratings, JP Morgan received a B grade, with much room for improving shareholder value, lowering risks and creating a more engaging work environment. See below for more details.
Provide a Means of Comparison
According to Stuart Woollard, Partner, OMS LLP, “Sharing this methodology will show boards, investors and key stakeholders the power of Organizational Maturity to analyse and measure so- called intangibles such as corporate culture, human governance and workforce management and, at the same time, understand their impact on sustainable value and material business risk. We know from our own experience with companies and the investment community that this is compelling technology that enables comparative measures of critical organizational factors that are currently missing. It also facilitates the design of roadmaps for powerful organizational change to make companies fit for purpose in today’s evolving business paradigm.”
 
Adds Paul Kearns, MI Chair: “We also see this as a crucial step in helping OM30+© become the defining global standard for measuring comparative organizational maturity which is linked to sustained value creation and risk mitigation. The original design of OMINDEX is aimed for ratings to sit alongside traditional credit ratings, which are unable to provide good whole system insight into current and future corporate ‘health’. We have now begun to see this aim being realized and hope sharing this IP (Intellectual Property) will greatly move us forward.”
 
Room for Improvement in Stakeholder Value 
The Maturity Index rating process was recently used by the Maturity Institute to rate Chase Bank, which received a grade of B, with a Total Stake Holder Value of 0.53 and a risk factor of 63%. Woollard says this means that Chase could nearly double its stakeholder value with a more strategic focus on human capital and significantly reduce risks to stakeholders. For instance, he noted, JP Morgan Chase has paid more than $28 billion in fines and penalties – funds that could be more productively deployed. 

The ratings were based in part on the following conclusions from publicly available filings and information sources:
