This research investigates the role of selected human resource management (HRM) functions and the influence of Chinese culture on employee outcomes in privately-owned small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in China. The research employs a regression model to analyse the relationship between HRM functions and employee outcomes using a sample of 308 respondents. The results indicated that HRM functions, such as recruitment, performance management, reward management, learning and development, and HR planning, significantly contribute to positive employee outcomes. Interestingly, the study finds that Chinese culture moderates the connection between HRM functions and employee outcomes, emphasizing the importance of cultural factors in HRM strategies. This research provides valuable insights for SMEs in China, stressing the necessity for culturally tailored HRM functions to achieve better employee outcomes.
