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.
This makes the line between human and resources elements of the business a fine line. The people at the business are most definitely responsible for the function of the business, but without the resources there would be no business. However, if there were only resources and no people, the business could not exist.
It is important for businesses to treat both the human and resources elements of the business as individual but intertwined elements of the company. The executives of the business often command the way the business is run and the way the staff are treated. They are also often the people who organize the resources. Therefore the executives of the business are an integral part of the relationship between the human and resources elements of the company.
Most businesses will have a human resources department that will take care of and look after the needs of the staff. This is an important role of the business because it not only keeps staff content but also deals with the hiring and termination of staff. The human resources department deals with the staff in a personal manner in addition to as a resource. A company or organization will flourish, struggle, or fail in the business world. It is often the staff and the resources involved in the company that are responsible for how well the business does thrive.
Both the human and resources aspect of the business should be handled delicately and as integral parts of the business. Having a strong human resources department in the organization can be a substantial department of the business. The more content the staff is, the harder they will work and in turn the productivity will be increased.
