Special Issue "Knowledge Management and Human Resources Management for Organizational Sustainability"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: Knowledge Management; Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior
The knowledge-based view of the firm evolved from the resource-based view of the firm , and acknowledges the existence of a very special resource category—the human capital. Managing such a powerful resource involves managing the employee’s efforts, performance, expectations, and career, as well as gaining access to the employee’s knowledge.
Sustainable development goals attendance demands the use of most common innovation dynamics, for example, knowledge strategies and human resources management . Thus, this Special Issue invites submissions focusing on knowledge management and human resources management as a means to reach organizational sustainability. We encourage interdisciplinary thinking; the main objective of this Special Issue is to approach the involved topics with new perspectives and methods, and to provide evidence from studies developed in original settings. Empirical papers reporting unique, systematic, innovative, and integrative research are targeted for this Special Issue. Bibliometric, systematic, and content literature review analyses are also requested. Both theoretical and empirical approaches are accepted. Submissions of empirical studies using either quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods analyses are the most welcome.
Knowledge management (KM) and human resources management (HRM) topics might include, but are not limited to, the following:
- KM and HRM integrative models for organization sustainability;
- KM and HRM analytics;
- KM, HRM and digitalization;
- KM optimization of traditional HRM tools;
- KM and HRM contributions to organizational learning;
- KM return-on-investment;
- HRM return-on-investment.
