Stick with work plan

STAFF need to plan for work activities that are realistic, measurable and achievable.

Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said this while opening the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs two-day corporate planning workshop at the Centre for Appropriate Technology and Development in Nadave, Tailevu on Thursday.

"The annual corporate plan becomes the performance agreement of the permanent secretary which he or she is assessed against," he said.

"The ministry needs to be aware of its opportunities and challenges and strategies to achieve and overcome them."

Mr Chand also said there was a need to continue with human resource capacity building and implementing reforms to improve productivity.

"The workshop should provide platforms for team-bonding and team-building for management and staff," he told participants.

"You should be frank and open in your discussions and in reaching consensus." He told the staff to consider the option of implementing reforms within the organisation as well as strengthening the capacity of the ministry staff.

"Take advantage of the ICT solutions available to automate some of your processes that could allow you to achieve your outputs and improve service delivery," he said. "Explore divestment and outsourcing opportunities of some of your functions to allow for greater efficiency."

Mr Chand also told the staff to look at the 2012 Service Excellence Awards feedback report as it could help the ministry improve on its internal processes for 2013.
