Public sector payroll systems in Austria, Slovenia and Sweden


year: 2020

This comparative analysis is an overview of public sector wage systems in Austria, Slovenia and Sweden. The goal is to contribute through the experiences of selected EU countries to the discussion on reform of the public sector wage system in the Republic of North Macedonia. The analysis was made within the project "Bringing change - good governance and effectiveness in public administration" funded by the British Embassy in Skopje. The project provides support to the Ministry of Information Society and Administration (MISA) in the process of public administration reform.

The subject of the analysis is the salaries in the public sector. The salaries of the public administration have been considered in detail as an essential part of the public sector, and reference has been made to the so-called public sector and in a broader sense that includes public enterprises, enterprises where the state has a majority or minority share, public institutions that are not part from the public administration and the companies that perform services on the principle of public-private partnership.

The results of the comparative analysis show that the analyzed EU countries practice different approaches to regulating wages in the public administration / public sector. Austria has a traditional, very expensive and, to the smallest detail, a regulated wage system that is gradually changing. Sweden practices a widely liberalized system that fits a developed and highly productive society. Slovenia is between these two systems, with clear regulations, but with flexibility in implementing wage бонус in the public sector.
