Introduction In this assignment, I am going to show and explain how managing human, physical and technological resources can help improve business performance.

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.
