The Role of Reflective Practices in Building Social Capital in Orgs From an HRD Perspective
Social capital has been receiving increasing attention in the field of human resource development (HRD). However, little is known as to how social capital has been formed or has grown over time with HRD interventions. There is limited research and discussion on how reflective practices play a role in the development of social capital as individuals reflect together in interactive social contexts such as networking activities. We will introduce an integrative model of institutional social capital and reflective practices. In particular, we highlight how HRD interventions can help facilitate social capital building in organizations using some example of HRD interventions.
