Why Human Resource Development is so important?
Economic crisis' impacts on Asian countries and the world in the past years reflect the risk caused by globalization. If we deeply think about it, the seriousness of impacts varies based on each country. Even the countries that are equally injured have different recovery rates.
The competitiveness in the globalization era not only relates to economic and social system of each country but also prevents and solves problems arising from globalization in the century's transition. This reflects the importance of human resource structure for the survival in globalization era.
Singapore, a country, which is not rich in natural resource, can achieve highest economic status and living standard of the world because of its continuous and high investment in human resource.
There is also no exception for Thailand. The absence from adequate and in-time human resource development will hinder the country's development. The country will lose its competitiveness because of its rising labor cost caused by the economic situation. If several sectors fail to upgrade the workers' skills, they cannot produce more technological-advanced goods and services and will lead to economic crisis.
Human resource development by giving education is a right way. However, there will be some limitations in term resource allocation and the standard. Basic management includes helping people get more access to education and bringing knowledge to create more value-added by helping people to create their own learning process which lead to process thinking, learning culture and life-long learning.
One of the problems is that Thai youths have been involving in teacher-centered process so they lack systematic learning and other related skills such as analytical skills, problem-solving skills, creativity and application of knowledge to their daily lives. Moreover, Thai people especially, youths lack opportunities of exchanging ideas and knowledge about themselves and their society.
Prof. Dr. Chira Hongladarom, the Leader of Asia Pacific Consultant Company Limited's vision focuses on working by using networking. He is also strongly supported by experts such as Thai and foreign academicians and modern businessmen to produce high quality works for the society. His work emphasizes on modern organization development to excellence by capacity building, establishing the management standards, strategic planning and creating learning organizations and culture. These lead to sustainable organizational development. This is why we are called “Chira Academy”
We try to be the domestic and international leader of modern organizational development by focusing on human resource development, the most important resource of the world.
