Out now: “HRM and Change Management: Comparative Results from Three European Cities of Excellence"


In this paper published by the Deutsches Forschungsinstitut für öffentliche Verwaltung Speyer, Marco Salm and Christian Schwab examine the role of HRM in public management reform in the Cities of Bilbao, Mannheim and Tampere – all three former EPSA winners, nominees or awarded best practices. This publication provides some insights on the correlation between change management and HRM reforms and their (presumed) effects. Thus, it contributes to compiling evidence on the effect of reforms and role of HRM at the local government level.
