Abstract

The current economic, social, political and technological conditions and the ever-increasing demands for higher growth, form the perpetual need for improvement of the public sector administrative operations. One of the major problems to be overridden by the Greek public administration (from which originated numerous pathogens) is the dysfunctional recruitment system. For decades, the Greek recruitment system faced widespread problems such as lack of meritocracy and corruption because of the intense patronage state. The current system has undergone many improvements, but certain deficiencies and pathogens of the past continue to exist to a large extent. This article provides a comparative analysis of recruitment systems in Greece and in Europe attempting to reduce good practices to improve the existing selection process in the Greek public sector. The ultimate goal of the study is to contribute to the strengthening of the recruitment systems in Greece, supporting respectively the effort to improve the overall efficiency of the country’s public administration.
