The given issue applied in the practise of food businesses in Slovakia is very actual. The objective reason is especially the fact that the food businesses are producers of domestic foodstuffs, production of which is considered very important not only from nutritional point of view for the population and availability of quality domestic products but from sustainability of employment in this branch, development and application of quality, qualified and committed employees, point of view as well. The objective of the paper is to find out how food businesses working in Slovakia implement and use new trends, in selected areas of human resource management, in reality. The research actively included 453 food businesses from all the Slovakia. The statistical relations and correlations between variables were performed by Cronbach alpha, Spearman test, Kruskal-Walis test using programs EXCEL and SAS Enterprise Guide 7.1. We found out that food businesses in Slovakia show significant reserves and shortcomings in a practical application of new trends within human resource management despite of the fact that their representatives realize the importance of human resources. In the conclusion, we provide suggestions and recommendations to improve the company practise.
