Abstract

The main aim of this paper is to evaluate the perception of the Slovak small and medium sized entrepreneurs (SMEs) of risks related to human resources issues that are connected with potential participation of SMEs in the cluster cooperation. To do so, it compares the attitudes of entrepreneurs categorized by type of clusters that operate in Slovak republic: technological and tourism. A study about risk perception was conducted in 2017 -2018 on a sample of 515 tourism and 471 of technological small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that participate in cluster cooperation, or have experience/knowledge about it. Further we used descriptive statistics and our hypotheses have been evaluated by means of chi-square method. Following risks were evaluated: 1. Risk connected with human factor (individualism of human), 2. The qualification and skills of employees, 3. Personal risks connected with brain drain, 4. Partners’ behavior. We have found out that perception of selected risks is different only in case of technological SMEs.
