Is there Something as an Ex-Yugoslavian HRM Model? – Sticking to the Socialist Heritage or Converging With Neoliberal Practices

Nina Pološki Vokić, Andrej Kohont, Agneš Slavić

Abstract


The question of this paper is whether there is an ex-Yugoslavia HRM model
drawing upon Western imported features fused with ethno open-socialistic and
self-management elements? In the empirical part Cranet data for 341 companies
from Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia are analysed. Main characteristics of HRM systems
in ex-Yugoslavia are: the HRM strategic partner role is still neglected, the mind-set
of taking care for everybody is omnipresent, the value of performance management
is not fully entrusted, the full-time employment still predominates, and the trade
unions retained their barging power. Although 30 indicators revealed specifics of
ex-Yugoslavia HRM model, the theorized hybrid HRM system was not disclosed.
