The Strategic Human Capital Interest Group promotes research addressing the role of human capital in firm performance. Scholarship that is interdisciplinary and/or considers human capital at multiple levels of analysis is especially welcomed.

Questions We Attempt to Answer

Examples of the types of questions included in this conceptual space are the following:

  • How can firms purposefully create valuable firm-level human capital heterogeneity?
  • What are the mechanisms that link human capital to firm-level outcomes?
  • How do firms best manage the value appropriation challenges presented by “star” employees?
  • To what extent can firms gain competitive advantage through “people?”
  • Why and how do competitive interactions within labor markets (e.g., talent poaching) differ from competitive interactions in other strategic factor markets?
  • How do management practices that enhance the strategic value of human capital diffuse?
  • What factors explain differences in human capital productivity within industries?
  • How does human capital emerge and interact with other forms of intellectual capital (e.g., social capital, organizational capital) to influence firm-level outcomes?
