Abstract:In order to cope with the demands of the globalized economy an organization must accordingly empower its human resources. This is achieved primarily through education, which provides the appropriate skills to address the ever-changing socio-economic affairs. This is the case not only for the private but also for the public sector organizations which cannot be left unaffected. Therefore, the state must be proactive in order to plan and manage the educational staff to ensure that the desired skills and learning goals for pupils and students will be accomplished. Besides, if you do not change the people who man the educational sector, education itself will not change.
Under conditions of economic and political crisis, however, human resources management reforms are considered particularly difficult and entail political costs. At the same time though, the lack of a coherent plan and a clear strategy in human resources management is an obstacle to the whole process of improved educational results both tangible and intangible. Our paper will go through the labyrinthine route of assessment in Greek education and its implications in human resources management.
