    • Abstract:
      While the demand for reform in government addresses virtually every aspect of public sector performance, discussions about reinventing government inevitably turn to human resource management (HRM). Critics charge that HRM processes often hinder, rather than help, public-sector managers do their jobs. Of course, negative criticism is heard in most organizations, public and private. The Wisconsin State Government HRM system is grounded in two fundamental and time-honored principles: merit and collective bargaining. Collective bargaining in Wisconsin Government also has long history tracing its roots to the beginnings of organized labor in the U.S. Wisconsin's reform strategy is to create a consensus for change by involving all stakeholders and customers including the Governor, the legislature, state agencies, labor unions and interest groups. This approach has enabled Wisconsin to make changes to improve service in key HRM areas including recruitment and selection, classification and compensation, diversity and labor relations.
