In the business or corporate world there are the people that work and put out products and there are the resources. However, often in the business world the people are considered the resources. There are human and resources connections within each business and corporation. No business is completely run on human efforts and no business is run without human efforts. Therefore the business world is built on the foundation of human and resources connections.
It can be harmful for the workplace to think of their staff as resources because then they become a commodity where anyone is dispensable and can be replaced. This makes the staff on edge about their stability and security in the work force. It is often important for staff to feel like they are part of something and the more content the staff is the more likely they will be to work harder towards their goals.
