Human resource management (HRM) plays an important role in every enterprise. Nowadays, in China, more and more enterprises, not only large companies, but also small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) choose to outsource their HRM activities for economic and strategic benefits. According to the feature of HRM in SMEs, this paper builds a more systematic and practical human resource management outsourcing decision model for SMEs. In this decision model, HRM activities are classified into transaction, profession and strategy levels, and economic benefit, core competence enhancement and risks are taken into consideration. Applying multi-objective intelligent weighted grey target decision method based on combination weighting approach, the decision model can help the enterprise decide which HRM activities should be outsourced in priority sequence. The study proposes a scientific guidance for China’s SMEs to make the HRM outsourcing decision.
