An Assessment and its implications on the Human Resources aspect

The whole world has been affected by the phenomenon of globalisation. The Mauritian economy itself felt the full presence of globalisation since over two decades now. At the same time the SME Sector has grown in importance such that it has become one of the leading employment providers in Mauritius.
This study aims to make an assessment of the impact of globalisation on SMEs' ability to develop their human resource capabilities effectively in Mauritius. The methodology used for this study is based on extensive literature research in books, publications and the internet. High profile professionals involved with the SME Sector has also been interviewed. The findings and analysis have been elaborated with the use of meticulous and very challenging in depth analysis.
These led to the conclusion that most SMEs are somehow struggling to develop their human resources in their quest to cope with the challenges of globalisation. Hence, a set of recommendation have been developed for the benefit of all stakeholders.

The pattern of economic competition has been modified with the arrival of the global economic competition widely known as globalisation. Organizations around the world have been affected by technological, economic and political changes, which have implications on the social and business environment, consumer expectations and employee relations.
Businesses who were previously fighting for survival on their own home soil, have now reluctantly found themselves on the international stage competing against thousands unknown organisations from different countries. New products, new technology, new management concepts, new markets and the quest for innovation and sustainable development are constantly arising to change industrial competitive advantage.

The Small and Medium Enterprise Sector (SME) has also been affected worldwide with the different changes that have occurred especially with the emergence of new technology developments and increasingly competitive markets. Seen as the lifeblood and cornerstone of the economy in many countries, the SME Sector has had to restructure its activities, skills and facilities in order to remain competitive and survive.

In Mauritius itself, economic sectors such as the Tourism Sector, the Manufacturing Sector and even the I.C.T Sector are experiencing one of the most turbulent times of their existence. The SME Sector too has not been spared from this disillusion. Following a constant growth since the introduction of the Business Facilitation Act of 2006, the Mauritian SME Sector is now somehow struggling to sustain its growth against the current challenges and constraints.
In order to compete, SMEs have to pay special attention to their most important assets, which are their Human resources. A skilled and trained workforce would definitely provide a huge competitive advantage to SMEs. Seen by the Mauritian Government as the real engine of sustainable and equitable growth, the SME Sector has to surge forward and fully play its role in job creation, economic growth and equity in order to become the MAIN pillar of the economy of Mauritius. The future ahead lies with the SMEs. . .
