Sources of human resource information and the link to organizational profitability
The human resource (HR) directors of 201 large U.S. organizations responded to a survey concerning the relative use of different sources of new HR information. Academic research-related information sources were used much less frequently than practitioner-related sources. However, analyses suggested that only academic sources were significantly related to organizational profitability. The strength of the relationship between the use of academic information and profitability also varied across industry types. © 1997 NTL Institute.
