Handbook of Research on Strategic Human Capital Resources

Edited by Anthony J. Nyberg and Thomas P. Moliterno

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.

Chapter 25: Commentary on Larkin and Nyberg and Reilly

Barry Gerhart


I briefly comment on two chapters on the topic of compensation, one written from a “micro” perspective and the other from a “macro” perspective. To begin, I catalog what I see as some important facts describing compensation in the workplace, and comment on areas where research could better align with such facts. Next, I identify commonalities and differences in the issues addressed by Larkin and by Nyberg and Reilly, as well as providing a few of my own thoughts on these issues. I find that the two chapters have few commonalities, instead focusing on different issues in the study of compensation. Comparing and contrasting these different perspectives is helpful in identifying some important takeaways as well as in thinking about what research is needed going forward. I provide my thoughts on both.
