This paper analyses measures which EU member states have undertaken in order to reduce their public sector operational costs since the beginning of the economic crises in 2008. Special attention is paid to the efforts directed towards the reduction of the number of staff and organisational restructuring, on the one hand, and cutting of remuneration levels on the other hand. The author concludes that most of the EU member states have undertaken serious measures to reduce operational expenditures, primarily through hiring freeze and freezing and reducing remuneration levels. In addition to countries that have most seriously been affected by the crises and required international financial assistance to revive their finances (e.g. Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland), other EU member states, such as the UK, France, Netherlands, Slovenia, Estonia, Lithuania etc. have also undertaken unpopular measures to reduce their wage bills. Some of the analysed countries, such as the UK, Lithuania and Slovenia to some extent, have achieved staff reductions on the basis of horizontal functional reviews of Government bodies. Bearing in mind that Serbia is currently in the process of reduction of number of personnel in the public sector, the author concludes that it would be useful to take into account the experience of these countries in furthering Serbian Government efforts to restore its public finances. Competencies should be interlinked with all human resources management processes, such as: human resources planning, job analysis, recruitment and selection, transfer and mobility, performance appraisal and reward system, personal and career development. This will require changes in legal framework - primarily in the Law on Civil Servants, and other supporting bylaws. In order to effectively implement the framework, there will also be a need for intensive civil servants training, especially of high level managerial staff.
