Outdated States wasting millions, says new HR head
We, of course, could have pointed this out
Under the biggest public sector reform in decades, sweeping changes to the way that staff are managed, paid and appraised could see automatic pay rises replaced with pay progression for learning new skills, and new emphasis on succession and career planning to stop reliance on importing staff for top jobs.
The aim of the proposals – due to go before ministers next month – is to create a modern and efficient public sector to prepare for the demands of the ageing population in the decades to come.
Newly arrived human resources director Mark Sinclair says that the States are decades behind normal working practices and that years of underinvestment in basic human resources services such as performance management, career progression and IT systems have left the public sector haemorrhaging money.
