Barriers to employee development in small enterprises in Poland and Finland - a comperative study

Ewa Rak


The purpose of the study is to identify barriers to employee development in small enterprises. The findings suggest that both Poland and Finland face similar difficulties in employee development, as confirmed by results of other studies published in professional literature. Of the most important barriers to employee development reported, high cost of development and time constraints are represented in similar proportion. It may be interesting to note that, for Polish entrepreneurs, the most important barrier to employee development is the employee as such. They often subscribe to the view that employees are reluctant to change or lack the potential or skills for effective development. Some respondents also emphasise their concern for unethical behaviour on the part of employees .
