Discussion 1 The Evolution of Human Capital Management
In your studies for this unit, you have examined many facets of human capital management. Throughout the course, you have also examined the development and evolution of the field of human resource management.
For this discussion, analyze the influence of human resource management on the evolution of human capital management. Specifically, how have human resource management models helped to shape human capital management practices?
Be sure to address employee recruitment and selection, or training and development, in your post. Provide examples, and use the course readings to support your statements. Recruitment, selection and training development represent core functions and responsibilities of the HRM professional. Doing these well is essential to becoming an expert in the field. Clients in all areas of work expect the HRM professional to perform these functions at a very high level.

- Describe what you could do, as an HRM professional in your organization, to help your organization transition into a learning organization.
