Abstract In this paper I analyse the (usually contractionary) employment policy in the recession times, analyse employment as a source of company’s profits, dismiss the “greatest management lie”, i.e. the empty declaration that “people are the greatest asset of the company” and try to find what are really the most important assets of the company. According to my research they are, as a rule: еhe brand and reputation of the company, fixed assets of the company, company’s rights to natural resources, money owned by the company, patents, algorithms, secret recipes, systems and processes owned by the company and company’s customer base.
