Strategic Human Capital and Human Resource Management: The Role of Context

Track L

Date: Sunday, September 21, 2014


Time: 08:00 – 09:15

Interest Group Panel

Room: Copenhague

Session Chair:

  • Rebecca Kehoe, Rutgers University


This session will feature a panel of Strategic Human Capital scholars who will discuss various perspectives on the role of context in the study of human capital. The session seeks to combine Strategy and Human Resource Management perspectives, with specific discussion points including the role of HRM in shaping the (internal) organizational contexts in which human capital is developed and deployed; opportunities for formal HR practices to shape the environment surrounding newcomer socialization processes to support learning-by-hiring and improve the transferability of new hires’ performance to the hiring firm; and the role of HRM in creating alignment between the knowledge, skills, and abilities of an organization’s human capital and the (external) national, cultural, and industry contexts in which the organization competes.
