Application: Human Capital

Human capital refers to the combined knowledge, skills, and ability
of a workforce to perform labor functions and is a vital part of
strategic human resource management. Employees, i.e., human capital, are
assets that could improve in value with some investment by the
organization. Consequently, when an organization’s assets increase in
value, the entire organization gains worth. Yet, many employees have
resources within them that are rarely, if ever, tapped and used.

For this Assignment, review this Week’s Resources. Review Chapter 2 of Human Resources Management for Public and Nonprofit Organizations.
Focus on the concept of human capital as it relates to strategic human
resource management. Review the “Strategic Human Resource Management”
segment on the course media. Think about what makes human resources
strategic. Consider how human resources have changed from a largely
administrative function. Identify a government or non-profit
organization and focus on its use of human capital and strategic human
resource management.

The Assignment:

Analyze the impact of human capital on strategic human resource
management in the government and non-profit organization you selected.
In your analysis:

  • Explain the mission of the organization.
  • Describe at least 2–3 strategic goals or objectives of the organization.
  • Explain the skills and competencies agency personnel need to
    manage and implement in the agency’s present and future strategic
    goals, objectives, programs, and services.
  • Explain the need for review, redesign, or implementation of human
    capital programs and activities to attract, retain, develop, and
    motivate the types of employees that will be needed.

Be sure to support your Assignment with specific references to
the resources and other current literature in the Walden Library.
