B.E. Assessment

Guide to assessing the influence of the business environment on small enterprise employment, ILO 2004

    There are three topics of assessment described in this guide:

    1. Profiling small enterprises and small enterprise employment
    2. Assessing the policy, legal and regulatory framework for small enterprise development
    3. Assessing markets and the business environment for small enterprises

    In addition to the three fields of assessment contained in this guide, a fourth field has been designed: The Small Enterprise Employment Survey Kit. This is presented in a separate document because it deals specifically with a survey approach to assessment. The survey described can be used to determine the influence the policy and legal framework and the broader business environment has on the employment decisions of small enterprise owner-managers.

    The Survey Kit, prepared in 2002, can also be downloaded from the link to the right.
