Chapter 14: The missing construct in strategic human capital research: humans
The field of strategic human capital, which has increased in importance and popularity, has developed largely from an economics perspective. While this perspective has been undoubtedly appropriate and useful, it suffers from assumptions (e.g., rational-economic man; repositories of human KSAOs) that often miss what it means to be human. In this chapter, we discuss these assumptions and incorporate additional perspectives (e.g., spirituality; sense of community) that can be incorporated with the economic underpinnings of strategic human capital to enhance future research.
