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 27: Keeping strategic human capital resources: mobility

John P. Hausknecht


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.
