Not only in word, but in deed, that what great leaders do with human capital....
Here's an interesting anecdote, that I came across, that brings this point home:
"If managers say that employees are their greatest assets, why do they-
- Read their emails DAILY
- Pay their bills MONTHLY
- Check their inventory QUARTERLY
- Service their machinery HALF-YEARLY
- Check engagement and performance of their employees only once a YEAR?
Human capital practices have not caught up with financial management practices and are still tuned to the industrial age.
And yet, human capital represents 77% of total expenses."
