Resource description

The paper investigates the relationship between human capital characteristics and firm performancein engineering consulting. Because general experience, firm-specific human capital and diversitycarry specific costs and benefits we hypothesize curvilinear (taking inverted U-shapes) relations tofirm performance. We find little effect of general experience and firm-specific human capital, butthe findings give some support for the curvilinear relation between performance and human capitaldiversity.
