Time to remove the word “Resources” from Human Resources

There is no harm in using the term “Resources” for inanimate objects such as laptops, networks, printers etc. But, humans are different.

Human Resources Department was created to manage people in the industrial age. Factories and Manufacturing are the words that crop up in people’s mind. Of course, things have changed for the better; but humans continue to be treated as resources. There is no harm in using the term “Resources” for inanimate objects such as laptops, networks, printers etc. But, humans are different. They need to be treated with care, respect and a great deal of empathy. When this is done well, human beings tend to do achieve their full potential, sometimes, exceeding it beyond their own imagination.

In today’s age, technology has invaded and touched almost every human with the proliferation of the smartphone. So, it is time all companies apply this to the way they deal with humans.

Time for change in this attitude is NOW.

Treating every human (not employee) uniquely in any organization will increase their experience beyond their association as an employee. Knowing each person’s strength or innate psyche can be empowering to the managers and leaders collaborating along side them (not working for them!).
