New research from the Korn Ferry Institute demonstrates than human capital is 2.33 times more valuable to an organisation than its physical global capital. 

The results of the research seems to contradict many media reports on how the future workforce will become more and more automated and technology led. As our children become increasingly savvy with technology and its potential, both in education and at play, it is easy to believe that work in the future will follow suit. However, this global research suggests that organisations who invest in technology at the expense of investing in their people do so at great risk. Critical success factors continue to be human. The ability to lead, manage, inspire, engage, motivate and drive people to perform to fulfill their potential will be the difference between organisational success or failure.
