ABSTRACT
This article presents an examination of the value placed on an organization's human resources. The author notes that it is becoming increasingly popular to measure the value of the individuals within an organization. He suggests that this interest is due to the notion that by failing to recognize the value of people organizations can suffer lapses in effectiveness. He examines what the need for measuring human value is for management, what research has been done to develop measures for measurement and what the managerial implications are for these developments.
