This paper is very much on work in progress. Only this year did we decide to start research on HRM in small and medium sized enterprises (SME’s) in the Netherlands. Personnel management in SME’s has been little researched, yet SME’s are very important for economic activity and many owners/managers struggle with personnel issues. In this paper we will introduce an outline of our research so far. The paper offers a literature overview leading to our research model, and discusses our research approach and tool. Some results of our pilot study are presented and discussed, even though the pilot itself was less successful than we hoped.
