In the last few decades, human capital management has become more prevalent and talked about by human resource professionals. Understanding and measuring it comes from a sociological perspective and can be used successfully to support staff and help the organization.
To understand how to best manage human capital, it needs to be defined. Human capital is what an employee brings to the organization. It is their talents, skills, experience, and qualifications that define if they can do the job or contribute to their future or that of the organization. Human capital is an economic activity.
