Human resources management (HRM) is interested in studying factors and best practices to manage the workforce to reach maximum efficiency. However, HRM models for large organizations are not applicable to startups. The startup workforce lives in a different environment and constraints that should be dealt with differently. In addition, the inherent uncertainty in the startup nature places implications and changes in the workforce, which need different HRM approaches. Most of the previous HRM researches have been focusing on studying large firms despite the impact on startups on economies and job creation. In this paper, a literature review is given on startups and their differences for big corporates, in addition to the current startup HRM models. As entrepreneurial activity is not limited to startups, HRM model for corporate entrepreneurship is discussed. Despite the rise of interest in startup HRM, a more rigorous and comprehensive startup HRM model is missing.
