Due to the constant industrial growth there is an increasing need for an academically capable workforce. A Knowledge Worker's benefit to a company could be in the form of developing business intelligence, increasing the value of intellectual capital which is a vital asset for each and every organization. Therefore, organizations' HR departments need to manage their workforce in a way which would motivate them, retain them in the company and search simultaneously for more and more capable workers. During these procedures, the errors are usual and knowledge is not always covering a company's needs. Only by implementing contemporary methods of both HR and knowledge management, an organisation could take the best of their knowledge workers. The present work is a literature review study which examines generally issues of Knowledge and knowledge workers and mainly answers the question: 'which are the main human resources issues and policies regarding knowledge workers?'.
