Chapter 27: Keeping strategic human capital resources: mobility
Although sizable literatures have developed in the areas of human capital and employee turnover/mobility, these developments have mostly occurred in parallel. This chapter reviews human capital and turnover/mobility constructs, and argues that there are substantial opportunities to understand how the two areas relate to one another as well as to unit performance and competitive advantage. Such progress will require: differentiating human capital loss from turnover; identifying positive consequences of mobility; measuring employee movement differently; and integrating fragmented literatures that are approaching the same topic from different theoretical and empirical perspectives. The chapter concludes with five broad recommendations for future research.
