Handbook of Research on Strategic Human Capital Resources
Strategic human capital resources are a relatively new construct with a scholarly literature that is still evolving. Work in this area requires the integration of multiple theoretical perspectives and empirical approaches, but that integration rarely occurs. Within these pages, the editors have combined the voices of leading scholars from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds to provide a comprehensive introduction to the current state of the field.
The Handbook of Research on Strategic Human Capital Resources brings together fifty prominent strategy, organizational behavior, human resource management, and organizational theory researchers who share a scholarly interest in human capital resources (HCRs). These authors draw on their diverse expertise and backgrounds to explore two broad domains of questions: how do we conceptualize HCRs and how do we actuate HCRs in organizations? These two domains each comprise four topics, and each topic is examined through 'micro' and 'macro' perspectives. In this way, the authors in each topic area shine a light on commonalities and differences in their scholarly perspectives surrounding HCR theory and practice.
The result is a foundational and definitive volume for understanding the current state and future directions of research on HCRs, making it invaluable for scholars interested in learning more about HCRs, doctoral students across a variety of fields, and practitioners.
