Employees are of crucial importance for the performance of healthcare organizations. (e.g. Townsend & Wilkinson, 2010). Therefore, enhancing our understanding of processes related to the management of these human resources in this sector is very relevant. Human Resource Management (HRM) can be defined as “involving all management decisions related to policies and practices that together shape the employment relationship and are aimed at achieving individual, organizational and / or societal goals” (Boselie, 2010, p. 5). Although the field of Human Resource Management (HRM) has become a widely studied research field throughout the years, there are some research areas that are in need for more investigation. In this dissertation, one of these areas will be examined in-depth. The focus of this dissertation is the innovation process of HRM related practices.
