Partnership for Change is a program of innovative collaboration between Slovenia’s public administration and private sector, led by AmCham Slovenia and the Ministry of Public Administration, aimed at exchanging and using good ideas, practices, and useful solutions, as well as employee exchange. In this program, employees in the public administration and business sector jointly push boundaries, break down stereotypes and create positive stories, proving that collaboration between the public administration and business, in a new, different and innovative manner, works.

The idea for Partnership for Change was born during a casual conversation with “pizza and beer” between the youth from Snowball and the Minister of Public Administration Boris Koprivnikar. The search for a better cooperation of public administration and business gave rise to the idea of employee exchange between business and the Ministry of Public Administration. In June 2015, the Partnership for Change pilot project was launched with the first employee exchange, involving 27 employees, 23 companies and the Ministry of Public Administration. In the very first round, participants broke down many stereotypes, primarily the one about “the lazy public service”.

"The respect between the public administration and the business sector that was created by the Partnership for Change was extremely important for fostering trust. My vision is one of a high quality of life in our beautiful country. The participants in the Partnership for Change embody the essence of this vision. Don’t quit but cooperate and SLOoperate as you have so far!"
Dr. Miro Cerar, Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia
