This report assesses the Slovenian public sector salary system.  It examines the salary structure; the job classification framework; wage relativities – level of compensation and method for determining wage increases, and the wage negotiation framework; use of cash supplements; use of performance incentives; and the role of social dialogue in bargaining employment conditions.      


Key messages of this report:

  • The public sector salary system is in need of significant further reforms, in order to strengthen forward-looking human resource management, support a performance-oriented public administration, and strengthen capacities for effective public governance.                    
  • These reforms should be a priority for the Slovenian governement, which requires sufficient powers to manage (and if necessary reduce) the public wage bill, as part of active policies in support of fiscal sustainability.
  • Further reforms should not weaken the central control necessary for coherence and transparency, or re-introduce the weakness that characterised the previous system.
  • For the reforms to be effective, broader aspects of public governance need urgent attentions: reform of the referendum system, the removal of remaining corporatist elements in legislation, and the development of a more effective relationship with the labour unions.
  • The reforms need to be set in the framework of an agreed, coherent and complete HR strategy - linked to budget management processes - in order to avoid a series of disconnected and sub-optimal processes.
