Introduction. Large-scale processes of informatization development in recent decades determine the need and opportunity to reconsider the role and importance of the human in modern society, determine his place in the modern economic system, and increase his role in the activities of the organization. Theoretical analysis. A review of the main trends in the development of post-industrial economy and its characteristics as a type of society with a predominance of innovative, progressive scientific and post-industrial components in the structure of the economy and a redistribution of the employed population structure from industry to the service sector is carried out. The main factors influencing the increase in the importance of the individual (person) in an organization in the system of post-industrial economy are considered. Results. In post-industrial economy, human capital becomes the key resource, and the role of the human is undergoing significant changes under the influence of technological progress, the growth of knowledge-intensive sectors of the economy, automation and changes in the structure of production. An important factor is the ability to learn, adapt and develop skills that meet the modern requirements of post-industrial economy. The human role does not disappear, it evolves, and its ability to adapt and innovate become determining factors in the success of organizations and economic progress in the post-industrial era.
