Human resource development, social capital, emotional intelligence Any link to productivity? Kit Brooks and Fredrick Muyia Nafukho University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA Abstract Purpose – This article aims to offer a theoretical framework that attempts to show the integration among human resource development (HRD), social capital (SC), emotional intelligence (EI) and organizational productivity. Design/methodology/approach – The literature search included the following: a computerized search of accessible and available material using the key words “human resource development”, “emotional intelligence”, “social capital”, “human capital”, “organizational productivity”, “productivity”, and “organizational performance”. Findings – The literature review provides evidence that it is logical to assume that the relationship among HRD, social capital, emotional and organization productivity is highly integrated. This finding influenced the authors to conceptualize an integrated model that illustrates the interconnectivity of HRD, social capital, emotional intelligence and organizational productivity with internal and external environmental factors. Research limitations/implications – The integrated model conceptualizing the dynamic relationship among HRD, social capital, emotional intelligence and organization productivity is based primarily on the review of the literature. Originality/value – The integrated model developed by the authors provides a framework that HRD scholars and practitioners may use to develop innovative instruments to measure the relationship among HRD, EI and SC and their subsequent impact on organization performance. Keywords Human resource development, Social accounting, Intelligence Paper type Literature review This paper seeks to accomplish three objectives. The first is to provide meanings of human resource development (HRD), emotional intelligence (EI), and social capital (SC) and how they relate to organizational productivity. The second is to develop an integration model showing the complex relationships among HRD, EI, SC and organizational productivity. The third is to demonstrate the need for organizations to invest in people through HRD programs, EI activities and promotion of the development of social capital in order to remain competitive and succeed in the current ideas era characterized with uncertainty and inevitable change. Lack of recognition of the interconnection among HRD, EI and SC in the literature motivated the authors to write this paper. The research linking HRD and performance improvement is a relatively new body of literature and has endeavored to integrate economic theories, psychological theories and systems thinking models (Pate et al. , 2000; Nafukho and Hinton, 2003; Nafukho et al. , 2004; Swanson, 1999).
