'To formulate, develop and promote in close collaboration with line Ministries and Departments, progressive human resource policies, strategies and management systems in support of the business of Government and to assist and support line Ministries/ Departments to achieve Government plans and programmes and to render an efficient service to the public.’
The People & Standards Division, within the Office of the Prime Minister, is led and coordinated by the Director General (People & Standards), supported by the workings of three important directorates, namely, People Resourcing & Compliance, People Support & Well Being and the Research & Personnel Systems Directorate. The People & Standards Division is primarily focused on developing and sustaining its strategic role at the centre of HR Management and across the Public Administration. In 2011, PAHRO, as it was formerly known, continued to progress from the traditional concept of micro HR Management, towards a macro and comprehensive outlook to workforce planning, change management, guidance and support provision to line Ministries and Departments, monitoring the implementation of HR Management in line Ministries and Departments, as well as promoting leadership development.
The People & Standards Division will continue to spearhead the implementation of the provisions of the Public Administration Act, progressive human resources strategies and policies, the increased decentralisation of procedural processes to line Ministries and Departments, and the ongoing streamlining of the business of Government in the field of HR Management.
