The HR-Performance link: Identifying key HR practices in Irish hospitals as a precursor to exploring effective delivery mechanisms
This research set out to identify the link between HR practices and employee, patient and organisational outcomes in the Irish hospital sector. In a resource-constrained public sector context, this will facilitate the prioritisation of these practices, to support service delivery.
The research was undertaken in three stages. Stage 1 involved a consultation phase and the preparation of the literature review. Stage 2 involved the development and distribution of the survey instrument, and analysis of the associated data. Stage 3 involved the feedback and validation of the findings; the preparation of a practitioner report and briefing paper and; the preparation of papers for publication in academic journals, in the health and public policy fields. Further detail regarding the completion of the research stages is provided below.
