Human Resource Management: Some Vital Considerations
Are human beings 'Resources'? On this question there is a sharp division in opinions. There are scholars, not much ethically inclined, who adore the practice of considering human beings as resources. They visualize a continuum - from the inert objects to the most refined intellectual endeavors - from the one end to the other, as resources to productive activities. On the other hand, there are a plenty of scholars who abhor considering human beings just a complement to other means (e.g. animals, plants and inanimate objects) of production.
