ISO 30414 for Human Capital Reporting has been available as ISO standard since end of 2018. The introduction of this guideline is intended to establish a globally uniform HR Reporting standard. The goal of the "ISO 30414 certification" is to provide official proof that your Human Capital Reporting is in line with ISO 30414. The certification enables you to position your HR Organisation towards stakeholders, both internally and externally.
We support you on your way to compliance with the Human Capital Reporting Standards ISO 30414. In our latest project we were mandated by Allianz SE and were able to award the official certification.

Importance of ISO certification for ESG
The ISO standard has a direct impact on the ESG strategy of organisations - especially on the "S" (social) and the "G" (governance) in ESG, which are often underrepresented in the public ESG discussion. Human capital reporting is relevant for ESG strategies as it covers the social dimension, minimises risks, creates competitive advantages, promotes long-term sustainability and strengthens the relationship with employees.
ISO-Certification at Rheinmetall
We would like to congratulate Rheinmetall AG on achieving ISO certification for Human Capital Reporting, a milestone that underlines the importance of transparency and standardization in HR. This certification, a privilege previously granted to only a few DAX-listed companies, marks a decisive step in the development of HR strategies and practices. It serves as a globally recognized benchmark for quality and efficiency in HR administration and signals a strong commitment to optimizing HR processes and metrics.
It not only provides a solid basis for internal decision-making processes and performance improvements, but also contributes to improving ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) performance. This strengthens stakeholder trust and positions Rheinmetall as a pioneer in HR innovation. We at 4C Group are proud to have been able to support this project and would like to emphasize Rheinmetall's commitment to a future-oriented HR policy.

"My first experience with the 4C GROUP was in 2014 in the context of the 'NextGeneration HR' reorganisation. Dr. Mauterer impressed me very much with his relevant wealth of experience, professional competence, methodology and personal commitment at that time. On the basis of this positive experience, I recruited Dr. Mauterer to work in the DIN standards committee 'Human Resources Management', where he is still an internationally sought-after expert and partner at DIN/ISO level with a current focus on 'Human Capital Reporting' (ISO30414). Dr. Mauterer has played a major role in shaping the core elements of this standard and has syndicated them in international committees."
