Aims:
  • I will identify how various factors (including institutions, reforms, leadership, job design, careers and culture) support or detract from governments’ image as an employer
  • develop new theory that combines the public management and strategic human resource management literatures

Young Public Servants

This study continues my research in the under-theorized area of workforce planning in public services. It focuses on the international problem of attracting and retaining young people in ageing public workforces. Governments can use the findings to develop evidence-based solutions that will attract a high quality workforce and ensure continuation of essential services.
