Mobilization of Human Resources
This chapter looks at the role graduates play in the mobilization of human resources. A distinction is drawn between graduates’ mobilization of their own capabilities and their role in mobilizing the capacities of others working in the same organization. The chapter starts with an analysis of the mobilization of graduates’ own capacities during higher education, in terms of study hours, effort and extracurricular experiences. Attention is subsequently paid to an analysis of the development of competences which are thought to be particularly relevant to mobilizing human resources, and the features of higher education that contribute especially to this. After this, several indicators are described that are thought to be relevant to mobilization of one’s own and/or others’ capacities at work, and the effects of competences, higher education characteristics and experiences, and work and organization characteristics on such mobilization are estimated.
