Аbstract: Human resources represent a generic term for describing the approach and framework for managing people in an organization. In many countries there are significant differences in terms of public and private sector employees.

Based on the efficient implementation of human resources management in organizations operating within the private sector, it is necessary to find a model for effective governance in organizations operating within the public sector. Research on the role and impact of human resources management on improving the performance of public sector organizations has not been the subject of significant research in the Republic of Serbia so far. The results of the theoretical and methodological analysis in this paper should contribute to a better understanding of the link between human resource management and the performance of organizations in the context of public sector organizations.
