Co-chairman of the the Public Sector Transformation Oversight Committee (PSTOC) Danny Roberts says the committee has endorsed a survey that will assist in engaging public sector workers in fulfilling its mandate.
Roberts said that the survey, to be undertaken by the Hugh Lawson Shearer Trade Union Education Institute and the Mona School of Business and Management at the University of the West Indies, will allow employees to contribute openly to the discussions and the direction of organisational growth and transformation.
“This will provide the starting point for further engagement between the Public Sector Transformation Oversight Committee and public sector worker”, he said.
The decision was taken during the third quarterly meeting of PSTOC on July 12, which reviewed the second-quarter benchmarks and commitments under the Memorandum of Economic and Financial Policies, as set out under the Precautionary Stand-By Arrangement (SBA) between the Government of Jamaica and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
PSTOC is the broad-based committee — comprising stakeholder representatives of the public and private sectors, trade unions and academia — set up by Prime Minister Andrew Holness in November 2016 to review the Government's implementation of the public sector transformation-related activities and structural benchmarks and report to the public.
