We initiated a conversation between two prominent scholars in the field of employee mobility who come from different disciplinary backgrounds: Rajshree Agarwal — from the human capital research perspective — and Matthew Bidwell — from the human resource management research tradition. Their cumulative work leads to vastly different conclusions. In this chapter we had an opportunity to explore their differences and share the roots of their motivations, interests and research philosophies. The discussion provides diverging, yet insightful directions for future research.
