Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 266)

Abstract

This paper demonstrates that human resource management (HRM) literature is moving towards a service science perspective in which value creation unfolds over time and is embedded in broader social systems [1, 2]. To contribute to this grounding, the authors draw on service science and service-dominant logic to promote a view of service (eco) systems and provide further theoretical foundation for hr and HRM [3, 4]. The purpose of this paper is to derive implications for the foundation, understanding and management of hr and HRM in terms of service exchange and value co-creation.
