PSC to upskill staff

POOR performances, stress and anger, and poor research and development processes will soon be a thing of the past for civil servants.

As part of efforts to improve the services provided by public servants, the PSC has outsourced a number of programs identified by ministries and departments as priority areas for training.

Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said these training modules were part of reforms to ensure well-trained personnel who would provide a professional public service.

A memorandum of understanding was signed on Thursday between the PSC and four outsourced training providers who will provide up to seven different modules of training for officers from the government.

The training providers include the University of Fiji, the Centre for Vocational and Continuing Education (CVC) of the University of the South Pacific, and private consultants such as Jagjit Singh who specialises in research and data, and Subhash Appana who is a Human Resource consultant and trainer.

The MOU's areas are strategic management, research and development processes, quality assurance, managing poor performance, statistics and data management, basic counselling skills, stress and anger management.

The training workshops start in August.
