Introduction

Introduction In this assignment, I am going to show and explain how managing human, physical and technological resources can help improve business performance. Human Resources, The Human resources can improve the Tesco's performance in many ways. There are two main processes which are looked at when managing human resources. The most important is to employ they correct people for the job, people that will carry out the job role correctly. Then the correct resources have to be provided for them so that they can carry this process out to the best of their standards. Treating these employees with care and sensitivity is important. They are not like physical or technological resources; humans need to be dealt in certain ways, as they are protected by legislations and laws.

It is very important for the organization to build up the skills of peoples so that they can deal with certain issues that arise in the business. It would be wise to train more than a few people at certain things, for instance in their absence, there should be somebody to handle that specific area. If an experienced person were to leave the organization, it would be hard to find another person that would be able to fulfil that job role with the same amount of skill as the previous person.
