Behavioral Accounting

A form of accounting that attempts to value key personnel such as executives or technicians. That is, behavioral accounting places a number on what an important person in the company can contribute and includes this as an asset. As with other intangible assets, this can be extremely difficult, but it can result in a more accurate picture of a company's worth. It is also called human resource accounting.
