A growing body of research shows a close association between human resource practices and the effective performance of an organisation. Most of this research has been undertaken in the private sector. Mary has looked at this issue in local government. She has worked with five London councils to investigate whether there are similarities and differences in the way that excellent councils implement their HR practices compared to councils that are judged to be performing less well.

The thesis explores distinctive features of public sector organisations and local government in particular, that affect the nature and implementation of human resource management. It also presents a critical evaluation of the shifting criteria used to judge the performance of local government bodies.
