The Impact of Human Resources on Knowledge Management in the Corporate Sector  42-47  
Pankaj Kumar, Jaya Kalra

Abstract: … HR and KM are essentially business-oriented, concerned with the management of people in order to obtain added value from them, and thus achieve competitive advantage. It is a deliberate strategy for the acquisition, improvement, and preservation of the corporate sector through the KM process, and is aimed at coordinating the requirements and availability of different types of employees. In this article we focus on the knowledge evolution cycle, strategy, and the initiative in HR as they pertain to knowledge management. Knowledge is seen as power, and in a competitive environment there could be a tendency to hoard knowledge. The key to the success of KM is the creation of a Knowledge Sharing culture and the elimination of organizational and cultural barriers to communication.
