CREATING A PROPERLY MANAGED WORK FORCE THAT IS READY TO ADAPT TO A MODERN PUBLIC SECTOR

For many years HRM governance in the Jamaican public sector has been fragmented with dispersed responsibilities among central agencies and limited enforcement capacity over Ministries, Departments and Agencies and , in particular , over the more than two hundred public bodies. It has therefore not been possible to develop, promulgate and sustain coherent and strategic whole-of- government HR policies and practices or even to manage the human capital of the sector effectively through information and knowledge, regarding numbers, demographics and the level, type and deployment of skills and competencies.

The government is aiming to maximise its human capital by, among other things, putting in place systems that facilitate strategic decision making in relation to the deployment and management of the entire GOJ workforce.
