Societal and economic implications of firms' resource-investments

Angelina Zubac, Kate Hughes, Linda Brennan

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper elaborates upon how a resource-investment conceptualization of the
firm could be used to learn about the determinants of institutional change, including the role of firms in social and economic development. It explains how the resource investment decisions of managers and owners are instrumental, and how by understanding these gender equity and inequity in the workforce research can be
better informed. It concludes it could be appropriate to define ‘work’ in gender specific resource-capital-payments parity terms.
