About us

It is common knowledge that human capital is the biggest asset of a firm. Organizations have constantly strived to harness the full potential of its human capital. With the constant changing environment within organizations and the world around us, there seems to be a big gap between aspirations and reality.

In their effort to see meaningful impact, most times firms are focused on large scale interventions which promise big bang impacts. These take time, money and acceptance within the organization.

At Leanhcm, we take a very simplistic yet meaningful approach to human capital management. We believe that small, timely and powerful actions help organizations achieve great things.

Our service offerings are smart, simple and scalable. 

Some of these are very simplistic and simple actions which have a systemic impact on the firm and its workforce. Yet, many times these small interventions are overlooked because the firms are busy focusing on big bang initiatives.
