Abstract

This study pertains to a primary data-based analysis of some vital variables regarding Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) in the Gurgaon Entrepreneurial Agglomeration, Haryana (India), which is a thriving industrial complex in the Delhi National Capital Region. The study finds that the size of hired workforce responds positively (and strongly) to the origin class and prior training of the entrepreneur as well as self/family based management and financing of the enterprise. The turnover of enterprises is explained well by the structured recruitment practices and training imparted to the hired employees as well as the innovative practices adopted by the enterprise. The findings also reveal that the entrepreneur’s favorable family background, his/her prior training in the business, training imparted to the hired employees, and adoption of innovative practices ward off the health problems of the enterprise.
