1. Are people always an organization's most valuable asset? Why or why not? Yes people are a valuable asset because employee skills, knowledge, and abilities are among the most distinctive and renewable resources on which a company can draw. Their strategic management is more important than ever. It takes people to build a business. 2. Suppose your boss ask you to summarize the major people-related concerns related to opening an office in China. What issues would be on your list? Some issues that would be on my list are that people worry that free trade is creating a “have/have not” world economy, in which the people in developing economies and the world’s environment are being exploited by companies in richer, more developed countries. This has led to anti-free-trade protests in many nations. Some other issues would be staffing, training, and compensation. 3. Will technology eliminate the need for human resources managers? Technology will not eliminate the need for human resource managers, it will only help.
