Public Sector Human Resource Management

Four Volume Set
Edited by:


© 2012 | 1 456 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Human Resource Management (HRM) is of central significance to every nation as they strive to govern well and deliver services effectively. The evolution of HRM in the public sector from personnel administration to more strategic management has transformed mechanistic views of the enterprise to ones that are more organic, interactive and collaborative.

This collection provides articles and chapters that address the evolution, current state and potential future of HRM, both in terms of traditional origins and development in public administration and the more contemporary metamorphosis in public management and public policy. The articles are broadly comparative in perspective and include consideration of increasing globalization and inter-dependency among nations and their policies.
