Employees are not important to a business; they are vital. In fact, the employees or workforce are what makes businesses move. They have been the drive that established many businesses that have shaped the advancement in every society. Aside from inventions and technology, the human workforce can be pointed out as the single mass factor in the existence of a business.
Unfortunately, many companies more specifically those managers in HR departments do a very poor job of managing their employees. They don’t have the skills and traits that could help their subordinates unleash their full potential. Without knowing how to unleash the store of creativity, productivity and innovation existing in every employee, you cannot be a successful manager. It is your job to unleash those assets and apply them to the goals of the organisation.
With the boom of technological machines, tools, and gadgets, the business area has never been more productive and efficient. These tools have aided many companies to make their works and daily tasks easier.
However, their value to modern businesses can not decrease the value of the human workforce. Although these are objects and are not entitled to have compensation and benefits, in their own right, they can also be liabilities. They can also be expensive and can also be useless once they malfunction. If totally destroyed, the company has to purchase another unintelligent unit.
On the other hand, human workforce is intelligent creatures – they have the initiatives to complete their tasks on their own and the capacity to decide what to do in order to complete their work easily and more efficiently. They know what to do, they can solve job-related problems, and they can store information in their brains and nothing can delete this information except illness. These are just some reasons why employees are more important than any machine in your workplace; humans are irreplaceable in business.
