Green HRM (Green Human Resource Management), Startup Enterprises, Sustainable Development, Long-term Sustainability, Environmental Practices


The concept of incorporating environmental practices into human resource management, commonly referred to as Green HRM, has become increasingly popular. This is because sustainable development, particularly its ecological aspect, plays a crucial role in establishing a competitive edge for modern firms. The objective of the study was to compile a comprehensive inventory of the environmentally conscious human resource policies and processes used by startup enterprises in Poland, and subsequently assess their impact on the long-term sustainability of these organizations. In order to accomplish these objectives, a survey was conducted on a representative sample of 150 young enterprises. Based on the findings, the concept of Green HRM is relatively recent in Poland. There exists a strong correlation between the evaluation of the impact of particular Green HRM initiatives on the long-term sustainability of businesses and their subsequent implementation. The research indicates that a higher rating of an activity's impact resulted in its more frequent implementation in the evaluated firms. Based on the aforementioned analysis, it can be inferred that the dissemination of information regarding the favorable impacts of Green HRM on the sustainability of organizations is crucial in fostering greater adoption of this concept among young Polish enterprises.
