The article discusses the increase in the demand for highly skilled knowledge workers globally and the headlong global shift to knowledge-based economy in May 2006. The concept of knowledge economy stems from the idea that employees are an organization's most important asset. This trend will cause human resource (HR) leaders to have a thorough grasp of organizational strategy as knowledge is likely to become more specialized, and strive to create networks within an organization for the exchange of knowledge.
