Managing People in Small and Medium Enterprises in Turbulent Contexts explores a range of Human Resource Management (HRM) issues specific to Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs). Based on a series of research studies and secondary sources of data, the book’s primary aim is to contextualise HRM issues in SMEs operating in a variety of national economic contexts that are (or have recently experienced) a turbulent situation. SMEs are the backbone of these economies. It is, therefore, critical that we study HR practices and concepts within such enterprises. The book covers HR practices in SMEs, such as Recruitment & Selection, Training & Development, Performance Evaluation and Employee Relations, by focusing on three types of turbulent economies: emerging market economies in Asia, the Pacific, Africa, and Latin America; transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe; and crisis contexts in Southern Europe.
Managing People in Small and Medium Enterprises in Turbulent Contexts is a useful resource for organisations, practitioners, academics and scholars in the fields of HRM, Employee Engagement, Small & Medium Business Managements and related disciplines.
