The article presents the types and features of virtual organizations and the characteristic features of human resource management. Human resources management in virtual organizations is characterized as a matter of decision-making in a fuzzy environment. Based on the peer comparison of expert estimates for the alternatives, including on the hierarchical analysis method, detection of the contradictions in the expert estimates and multiplicative aggregation methods, a decision making technique is proposed for the recruitment of the employees. The empirical experiment of the recruitment issue based on the proposed technique is described (pp.15-24).

Keywords: virtual organization, human resource management, selection of employees and partners, decision making, analytic hierarchy process, multiplicative aggregation.
