The purpose of this study is to clarify how workstyle and self-learning affect human capital. Considering that both the economic value and the spiritual value of human capital have been evaluated, we attempted to analyze this two-sidedness of human capital in this study. It became clear that when young workers do work that can improve their own abilities, they raise spiritual human capital but lower economic one. We conclude that companies need to develop workstyle that can enhance the economic human capital by improving their skills.
