The Importance of Human Resources
Human Resources is simply a term used to describe the organization or individuals who make up the workforce of an organization or the PEOPLE. People constitute an organization’s most important and vital factor in its success or failure. The most important resources of an organization are its human resources – the people who supply the organization with their work, talent, creativity and drive.
