'Human capital' is sometimes used synonymous with human resources, although human capital typically refers to a more narrow view (i.e., the knowledge the individuals embody and can contribute to an organisation). Likewise, other terms sometimes used include 'manpower', 'talent', 'labour', or simply 'people'. So, we can say that those people who are educated, trained, skilled, experienced, energetic, physically healthy and mentally active, well-mannered and dedicated to their work are called human resources.

Skilled manpower is essential for the development of a country because they can produce maximum with the limited available resources. Only skilled manpower can do their work perfectly. Only a farmer can harvest crops perfectly. Only a businessman can do his work perfectly. So, it is necessary to have the skilled manpower in different fields for the development of a country.

Nepal has not made enough development yet. It needs manpower such as farmer, doctor, pilot, journalist, engineer, mason, advocate, teacher, administrator etc. The important thing is how many skilled workers are required in a particular field. It is decided by the government. When it has been decided, the required number of manpower is produced by training them. Then they are appointed to perform the task in every field. Thus, the plan of development is carried out successfully.

But this does not happen in our country. The result is that the number of problems arises during the process. In some fields, the number of skilled workers is more than the actual requirement. Consequently, unemployment problem occurs. Similarly, lack of manpower is created in some other field. As a result, the development work is hindered. The number of unemployed people is increasing day by day. Most people receive the only general education. They do not acquire skills. Some educated persons think it beneath their dignity to do a particular work. It should be remembered that no job or occupation is inferior. Work needs to be worshipped. When we work with this mentality, our village, town, district and country will prosper.

  • The number of people working for an organization  is known as manpower.
  • Skilled manpower is a group of working people who are energetic, experienced, dedicated to their work.
