Summary/Abstract: If we analyze the contemporary literature in the field of personnel department, and human resources management at the global level, we will find more or less the statement that a man is the most valuable potential of organizations that people are the greatest wealth and irreplaceable factor in every organization. At the level of the UN numerous declarations were adopted on human rights, in order to protect and improve their basic rights. On the basis of national legislations numerous laws were adopted about the rights of employees, women, children, minorities, etc. Many associations were formed for the protection of the so-called “vulnerable” groups and communities, in order to preserve His Majesty, man. However, practice shows a completely different situation and tendencies. The more you talk about the man or about the people more problems arise on that point. It turns out that the status or treatment of the man in the organization at the national, but also at the global level is far below declarative submissions or preferences. This refers especially on companies and organizations with high organic composition of capital that is, where technology prevails. It has never been more wars, inter-ethnic and inter-state conflicts with tragic consequences, millions of refugees and migrants who go from one continent to another in spite of a large number of resolutions at the level of the international community on human rights. If we would test the top management of large companies about their knowledge of human dimension in their organizations, we would come to devastating results, and that is that they are far more familiar with the material factors (instruments of labor, tools, accessories) the time necessary to execute the repair of machines, replacement of some parts, assemblies and subassemblies. In contrast to the above, the human potential is not being talked about, or it is talked about in secondary and irrelevant discussions. All indicates that the technology is being developed, and that man is not equally developed with it, although it is he who has created it. All stated above imposes the need to point out the place and importance of man in modern, technological, turbulent and uncertain organization. The aim of this paper is to show and prove the growing importance of man in the organization through arguments, especially from the standpoint in the future and in terms of increasing usage of modern information technology.
