Though human and relational capital are vital to the success of firms, little research exists on the dynamics of how these resources change in response to firms’ growth. We consider knowledge worke...

Context†emergent turnover theory (CETT) focuses on the contextual factors that influence the turnover†firm performance relationship, yet to date, has not investigated how particular firms weather the detrimental effects of loss more effectively than others.

Specifically, we argue that bundling human resources prior to e...
