The Department of Personnel Management will be holding a two day workshop at the end of September to train line agencies on how to write Key Result Areas (KRA’s) for their respective heads.
The training is part of ongoing trainings conducted by DPM to equip HR Managers and Planning Managers on how to create KRA’s for their respective agency heads.
Department of Personnel Management Secretary Ms Taies Sansan said, the Performance Management System (PMS) is part of the Performance Based Agency Head Contract system committing agency heads to deliver services and programs in accordance with the performance targets agreed with the portfolio minister for Departmental Heads, Governor for Provincial administrations and Board chairpersons for other funded public authorities.
“Since the department started rolling out the Online Performance Management system in 2019, I have observed that agency heads are either not submitting their key result areas or are submitting them very late.
This is defeating the purpose of the performance based contracts that have been executed between
the head of state and the Agency Head”.
Through a circular instruction sent out to HR Managers of all national departments, provincial administrations and other funded public authorities an invitation is extended to all Human Resource Managers and Planning
Managers to attend the training to be run by DPM’s Executive Resourcing Service branch on how to write Agency Heads Key Result Areas from corporate plans.
The 2 day workshop will be held at the Pacific Institute of Leadership and Governance from the 28th to the 29th of September 2021.
