    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Using a sample of 74 Chinese small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), this paper explores the influence of ownership on human resource management (HRM) practices by SMEs. It concludes that ownership determines the level of complexity in the application of HRM practices, which are more likely to be adopted by foreign-related and domestically private-owned companies than by collective and state-owned enterprises.
