Clearly, thought and planning are required to insure that the organization knows where it wants to go and how it will achieve its objectives. Mello (2015) states, “Developing an effective strategy to manage an organization’s human assets requires considering employees as investments” This ensures that all HR practices. . . are clearly in sync with the organization’s overall strategy”.

Discuss: What can HR do to make senior and line managers take more of an investment approach to human assets? Also, do you agree that we have to consider employees as assets to manage employees as Mello states above?
