Human capital enables success for individuals, organizations and societies. It is a function of the quantity and quality of education, learning and experience accumulated by individuals. Human capital is reflected not only in the quality of work, its innovativeness, financial and non-financial performance but also reflects the relation of the individuals to themselves, their professional careers, health, society and the environment. Quality of life in modern societies depends directly on the quantity of human capital accumulated by citizens, organizations and societies over the years. Human capital is directly connected to the management of knowledge, either at the level of individuals, organizations or societies. They all should be enabled to acquire knowledge, disseminate it and apply it in order to create an added value that could build the quality of life.
