Let’s talk about Human Capital. What is it? Human capital is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as "the skills the labor force possesses and is regarded as a resource or asset." As a business owner, the success of your organization depends upon the work productivity of your staff. So, when you have employees who feel valued and cared for, they will be happy and business is good. Take the time to assess your human capital just as you would every other part of the business. Investing in people is just as important as investing in equipment or upgrading technology.
I often hear "It's so difficult to find good people." Employers search far and wide for employees who have a good work ethic and positive attitude in addition to skills, experience and knowledge they can bring to the table. So once you find talented people, take good care them!
