The rapid changes that have been mainly caused by the information age are numerous and irreversible. That have affected our way of life on the front and almost all have left many old companies in ruins, giving rise to new ones emerge and grow rapidly to unprecedented high profitability, literally overnight. But nevertheless, there are still some things have not changed. For example, computers can not think for themselves and make the right decisions, at least not yet. So someone has to analyze the data and then on the basis of the information, to make a decision about what to do before finally feeding the computer with instructions for application. In fact, human resources have become even more important in this age of information. While it is true that companies have greatly reduced in people (and still continue to do so), the truth is that many of these jobs have been transferred to other areas and departments. For example, most companies have a fairly large number of staff to help manage their websites.
Despite what might have been considered earlier, it is increasingly clear that the human resource element in business is, in fact, increasingly important and not the reduction or decrease in importance. A Lean Enterprise, for example, means that virtually no employees who act as checks and balances of the important tasks and decisions. Secondly, the skills required of human resources are absolutely critical in any online transaction. Take, for example, online marketing, which is simple and straightforward as it is offline. The staff resources with the skills are in high demand. It has therefore become very important for workers to be motivated and able to work independently with minimal or no supervision of the lean to get things done in companies everywhere. The human resource management and motivation of staff are still very important and often overlooked fact the keys to success in this exciting, yet chaotic information age.
