This professional development workshop will provide early career and interdisciplinary scholars with 1) insights regarding research in strategic human capital from a keynote speaker and 2) an opportunity to receive feedback from expert scholars on their current papers in progress on topics addressing the role of human capital resources in unit and firm performance. We expect this workshop to be particularly beneficial to early-career faculty and scholars from other interest groups who are grappling with human capital issues as they will be exposed to ideas, critical issues, and promising avenues of research. The workshop will open with a brief networking session, which will include an icebreaker intended to introduce participants to each other. This will be followed by a keynote address regarding emerging trends and questions in the field. There will be a Q&A session following this. In the second part of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to receive feedback on their current papers in progress from expert scholars as well as to provide their own feedback to their peers in a round-table session format. Groups are expected to be 1 faculty and 3 to 4 participants.
