Product Description

Governments of today are under increasing pressure to deliver more and better services within the constraints of limited resources. Employees are central to service delivery and the calibre of those appointed in a public institution is often evident in the quality of services rendered and the number of complaints received. Managing human capital in the public sector encompasses all activities starting from the recruitment of staff to the final termination of services.

Managing human capital in the public sector is rooted in theory while using case studies to bring the learning experience closer to a public sector work environment. It supports a problem-based learning approach and prepares graduates to perform duties in a human capital environment with minimal on-the-job training.

Contents include the following:

  • Strategic human capital management
  • Acquisition and assimilation of employees into the workplace
  • Affirmative action, employment equity and managing diversity
  • Public sector compensation
  • Motivating staff
  • Performance management
  • Training in the public sector
  • Career management
  • Talent and retention management
  • Employee relations
  • Managing employee wellness in the workplace

Managing human capital in the public sector is aimed at students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as human capital practitioners in the public sector.
