Is Your Current Leadership Team Up to the Human Asset Management Task?
The topic of human capital is everywhere today but how do organizations implement a robust human capital structure and culture, one that goes from talk to action? In my previous blogs, I discussed moving the narrative about human capital to the next level – human asset management. If we do that, we think about employees and, more importantly, managing employees like the dynamic and robust assets they can be. We need to think about employees relative to peak performance and productivity, value creation and relevant and future-focused skills and knowledge upskilling. As leaders, we need to view our employees as continually appreciating assets. This is good for both the employee and the organization.
Human asset management cannot exist organizationally without the critical function called leadership. Only leadership can focus on how employees are upskilled and ready to meet the organization’s workforce challenges and demands of today and tomorrow.
