Why I Don’t Like the Term “Human Resources”

The famous management expert Henry Mintzberg once said:

An enterprise is a community of human beings, not a collection of human resources.

If businesses want to create a more positive, productive, and supportive work environment, then they need to stop treating their employees like resources to be managed and start treating them like valuable human beings.

We are in a war for talent.

In our exciting, post-pandemic era, the success or failure of a company will depend on how it treats its employees.

I wonder how many realise this.
