We study the impact of human resource management (HRM) in terms of technology management in the companies. Our sample, 17 of which are partially or totally foreign owned consists of 37 companies operating in Turkey. HRM applications in R&D management of the firms imply that in our sample; empowerment, career satisfaction of the R&D personnel, compensation and comfortable working environment for R&D personnel are supported. Therefore, in our sample career mobility in R&D personnel is not generally met. Their business environment satisfy them and they work efficiently, they don't move much. 9 respondents imply that R&D personnel is included in job rotation with different goals. Another result of our survey shows that for total sales and exports, R&D activities are considered to be highly effective. In conclusion R&D budget is evaluated as sufficient by 29 respondents in our survey. Further study will be made focusing on the sectoral differences about HRM effectiveness in technology management of the companies operating in Turkey. (C) 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
