The Critical Nature of Human Resources and It Effect on Accounting Decision Making
A tradition in the American business environment sees employees as “at-will” members of an organization if they are not contractual hires, and therefore they can be separated from a business at any time without notice. Historically, the development of people is related to helping them be successful on their jobs in order to perform better and make the business more profitable. Yet Christians see people as created in the image of God, and having inherent value that organizations have the potential to develop and harness. God Himself is in the people-developing business (Van Duzer, et.al, 2004). In this setting Human Resources has the opportunity to focus on guiding believers to identify and utilize their calling as well as building people’s skills and experience through various development opportunities.
