Abstract

Human resource management practices have become the de facto standard for almost all large organizations. Today’s organizations consider human resource management as an all inclusive practice and view it playing vital role in their development. However, the significance of HRM practices in small enterprises is not yet fully realized and only a handful researches are done so far on HRM practices (Heneman & Berkley, 1999). This paper suggests the imperative role of HRM Function in small enterprises of Pakistan. The propositions made on the basis of literature review in order to emphasize this research are; firstly; HRM practices are likely to be significant for the survival of small enterprises. Secondly; because of this essential role of HRM for the survival of small enterprises, it is also likely to be vital for their growth. Thirdly; it is suggested that HRM practices, if implemented in early stages of the organizational life cycle of small enterprises, are likely to curtail down the unhealthy resistance to change by the old incumbents of organization.
