AUTOMATING STAFF MANAGEMENT AT THE COUNTY.
County Public Service sub sector is working towards enhancing quality services delivery by the County staff. Among these strategies put in place for the realization of this objective include the development of Public Service policy, implementation of performance contracting and appraisal system as well as carrying out regular staff assessment.
It is now partnering with ICT sub sector and County public service board in the roll out of Human resources management system(HRMS) that would enhance proper maintenance of employment information and staff management. This system that requires all the county employees to register, submit all their credentials and present their biometric details into the system.
Today the stakeholders met to assess on the progress of the system’s roll out. According to the Chief officer for Administration & public service- Philip Towett, the Public Service sub sector is focussing on enhancing effective staff management for a result oriented Service delivery. He added that this platform will provide data to support routine and repetitive human resource decision making and planning.
Speaking during the meeting, Ms Eliseba Arusei who is a member of the County Public Service Board pointed out that the system will also be integrated with the online Jobs portal rolled out for Public Service Board so as to help in managing Human resource need assessment and the recruitment process.
The system’s implementation is geared towards improving performance and productivity by county employees countywide. This will be achieved through the system’s ability to manage all the employees’ information, provide for training and capacity building needs, manage staff appraisals, handling promotion, demotion & transfer, provide information on staff operations and safety, managing staff absenteeism and turnover and even handling discipline matters.
The Chief officer for ICT and e-Government, Jonathan Misoi highlighted that such automations will greatly impact the County in the realization of its transformative agenda through integration of technology thus enhances efficiency especially in management and Service delivery. He added that the ICT sub-sector will soon realize its objective of automating the operations by all county departments.
