This chapter examines the measure of organizational capital in relation to human capital. It discusses recent related findings that the returns from the adoption of advanced technologies are improved by the adoption of state-of-the-art human resource practices. This chapter explains the three broad components of organizational capital which include workforce training, employee voice and work design, and explains the important links and synergies between each of these categories that contribute to the overall value of organizational capital within a firm.
