Public workplace commitment in a post-bureaucratic context: dominant anchors and publicness

Abstract : In most OECD countries today, public administrations are attempting to best reconcile values and a public service ethic with their ongoing managerialism. In this particular context, employees are now tempted to redefine their public identity, or even rediscover the sense of their workplace commitments. A more general reflection leads us to question the new references of employment relationships woven in a priori opposed dynamics (public vs. private). At the heart of this indeterminacy dwells issue of the publicness of workplace commitment. This thesis thus mobilizes a critical reflection on public employment and its peculiarities. Besides, its ambition is to enlighten the mutations at work within post-bureaucratic public administrations, and their implications for individual attitudes and behaviors at work. It provides valuable tools for public HR practitioners in their strategic management and valuing of the human capital.
