In our society today, it is generally accepted that human resources are the most valuable asset possessed by an organization. The basis of this premise is simple—regardless of the state of technology achieved, it remains the task of people to perform the functions and make the decisions which are vital to the survival and well-being of any organization. Technological advances increase the importance of the human element in the sound management of organizations. Freed from many routine functions, including less important decisionmaking tasks, executives are able to devote a greater percentage of their time to more critical matters. Technological process therefore necessitates the recruitment and retention of high caliber management talent as an aid to organizational vitality.
