TOKYO -- The Japanese government plans to create guidelines for companies to disclose "human capital" metrics such as employee diversity and human resource training as soon as this summer, Nikkei has learned.

Human capital, the abilities and knowledge of workers, is seen as an asset that can generate new ideas. The U.S. and Europe lead the way in this area, and the government hopes that the disclosure of such information will help attract new investment.
