Walton Brown on human resource
House: human resources reform
The Government will reform its decentralised human resources management, the Cabinet Office minister said.
Walton Brown explained that human resources functions are to be united under a Department of Employee and Organisational Development, which will also oversee all union agreements.
He told the House of Assembly on Friday that a talent acquisition manager will help to make the Bermuda Government “the employer of choice”.
Mr Brown said the decentralised model had caused “duplication of effort, inconsistent service delivery, a weighty compliance regime, and an inordinate amount of time to execute basic functions”.
Mr Brown said the new department would get its administrative set-up over the next six months, with phases two and three unfolding over the next year to two years as the old HR system is phased out.
There are 4,680 employees in the public service, with six unions to represent them and seven separate collective bargaining agreements and/or conditions of service orders.
