Abstract

The objective of this study is to examine the impact of human resource (HR) configurations (combinations) and intellectual capital (lC) in the Australian biotechnology industry. This study investigates how HR configurations facilitate the development of IC elements, which, in turn, enhance organisational performance. More specifically, it explores how HR configurations affect an organisation's level of IC; which IC elements contribute the most to the organisational perfomance; and whether innovation capital acts as a mediating variable between the three IC elements (human, organisational, and social capital) and organisational performance or whether it acts as an independent variable.
