Nuclear power makes you smerter

From my inbox comes this delicious promotional tidbit:

Conventional wisdom says people who work in nuclear power are smart. But
employees at one nuclear power company are about to get a whole lot smarter.

Nuclear Management Company (NMC) - operator of six nuclear power plants in
the Midwest - is implementing an enterprise software solution to
strategically manage employee gain new efficiencies in human
capital management and regulatory compliance.

Ok obvious Homer Simpson jokes aside, does it strike anyone else as slightly demeaning that the vendor refers to worker-bees (nuclear or otherwise) as "human capital?" Sounds like a euphemism straight out of Soylent Green.
