Human resource champions: the next agenda for adding value and delivering results

The writer argues that the jobs of human source execs has to be redefined to satisfy the aggressive demanding situations enterprises face at the present time and into the long run. He presents a framework that identifies 4 special roles of human source execs: strategic participant, administrative specialist, worker champion, and alter agent.

The wettability of a surface is determined by measuring the contact angle of a droplet of deionised water on the substrate surface. Both tissue culture plastic and glass coverslips are widely known for their significant wettability, making them suitable materials for the attachment of cells. Post-electrospinning, the nanofibres of PCL are of an extremely hydrophobic nature, with a contact angle of approximately 85°. In order to make the surface ideal for cell attachment, pre-treatment of the fibres is necessary.

5 Comparison of advantages and disadvantages for each collection mode Advantages Liquid reservoir • Very fine, long fibres can be drawn off the liquid surface. • Bundles with the smallest diameters are created using this method. • Bundles of this type have the highest Young’s modulus. Fixed point • Bridged fibres can be easily removed, submerged in deionised water, and twisted together to form tight fibre bundles. • Bundles of this type measure the highest tensile strength. Thin mandrel • Fibres can be easily removed from the mandrel edge, submerged in deionised water, and twisted together to form tight fibre bundles.

7 Predominantly aligned fibrous bundles fabricated from different collection techniques: (a) thin mandrel, (b) fixed point, and (c) liquid reservoir; (d) tensile strength and (e) Young’s modulus of these fibre bundles. 2 GPa and a tensile strength of 25 MPa (Maganaris and Paul, 1999). However, the literature suggests that mechanical properties of tendons vary according to the method of testing employed, the nature of the test (either in vivo or in vitro), the age of the tissue, the tendon source (human or animal), sedentary or athletic patients, and also the sample gender.
