Part 2 – One Problem Different Points of View
The students are given newspaper articles about controversial HR issues, they will work in groups of 6 (Or multiples of 6 depending on the size of the group) and each of them will be given a specific role in the group – the fact checker, the emotional, the pessimist, the optimist, the solution maker and the moderator. Afterwards, they must present the issue to the class, and share their suggestions of how to fix it.
Human resources are considered to be a valuable asset of any organisation. Taking sustainable development into consideration, we should think about human capital. The enhancement of its capacities is one of the most important requirements for development. Very often, organisations hesitate to invest in their human resources, forgetting that the return of this investment will be an asset for the organisation itself. The following material, in addition to other benefits will also be a guideline for the managers and/or future leaders of local organisations (present students) who first of all should think about the enhancement of the existing Human Resources capacities, for the impartial recruitment of staff as only in this way they may achieve the purpose and goal of the organisation.
In the 21st century, human resources are the success and the failures of organisations. The enhancement of the human resources capacities will notably influence its development. For our society, the resources of the organisation are simply considered as dependents and not as partners. Therefore, in this material we will explain the importance of the human resources in organisations, highlighting to the students that well-educated, trained and developed human resources, are not simply an asset of the organisation but of the entire society in general influencing the sustainable development of that organisation.
