Alludes to the often heard phrase ‐ “our people are our greatest asset” ‐ and wonders how many organizations have really captured the full value of their human resource (HR). Examines why the HR function has to change from being reactive, to becoming the agent of change. Outlines an example of cascading education throughout the organization to realize this greatest asset.
