Strategic HR which would encompass HR Planning Recruitment Retirement and. other HR policies to ensure best practices in the Service.

RRA in this Report,Specific Reforms for the RRA, 1 19 During meetings Management and Staff Associations averred that after. 14 years of existence of the RRA the need for certain reforms has become. imperative in order to enable the Commissions to deliver on their respective. mandate pertaining to befitting organisation structure catering for the specificity of. Rodrigues better existing human resources to adapt to changes and new. responsibilities,Pay Review 2016 4,Rodrigues Regional Assembly Introduction. Findings and Considerations, 1 20 During consultations with Management of the different Commissions of the. Rodrigues Regional Assembly and the Unions the following salient features were. highlighted, i A few divisions sections cannot deliver their objectives effectively in. accordance with laws and regulations in the absence of the appropriate. structures human resources Some divisions are manned by a single officer. and as such this causes long delays and work being attended to only. ii In several sections the most senior officer is being paid an ad hoc allowance. for performing higher duties in addition to the normal ones. iii Some structures need re invention and modernization as they do not fit the. new sets of expectations in line with the new policy framework and the new. direction These structures have so far proved to be defective to meet the. gradual increase in demand, iv Certain structures particularly in those sectors constituting the major pillars. require professional and trained staff on their establishment. v Some structures call for strengthening at the top to cater for additional. administrative and technical responsibilities as there is a gap in the overall. supervision coordination hence the need for a permanent head to be. accountable, vi Other structures need reinforcement at the promotional level even on a one. to one basis as of necessity to be in compliance with legal requirements and. regulations in force, vii There is need for polyvalent and multifunctional personnel in some sectors. which would prove beneficial in terms of the judicious use of available human. resources job enlargement and a reduction of the multiplicity of grades and. grade appellations, viii Some schemes of service need restructuring to remove rigidities and to widen. the field of recruitment, ix With the advent of rapid development in the island and the consequent. changes the services of officers in a few grades would no longer be required. 5 Pay Review 2016,Rodrigues Regional Assembly Introduction. Conclusions, 1 21 To address the foregoing issues we have among others professionalised certain. functions strengthened several structures with the creation of posts at the apex to. ensure proper accountability strengthened other cadres to ensure an adequate level. of supervision phased out those grades which are no longer required and. restructured the schemes of service of a few grades to remove rigidities to widen. the field of recruitment and to align with the provisions set in the guidelines for. prescription of scheme of service In other instances where more in depth studies. are required we have recommended that appropriate HR assessment exercises be. undertaken for a complete modernisation of the whole service. 1 22 In the process of making our recommendations we have taken into consideration. the physical separation of Rodrigues its isolation the limited opportunities for. employment and career fulfilment as well as the special needs of Rodrigues in view. of its distinct identity, 1 23 We are in this Report while making recommendations taken into consideration the. i the qualified job market, ii service provided to communities by certain cadres and. iii harmonisation to the extent possible of cadres with what obtains in the Civil. Consequential Structural Changes, 1 24 In general structural changes effected in the General Services Administrative. cadres Purchasing and Supply cadre Finance cadre Internal Control cadre and the. Workmen s Group in the Civil Service have as appropriate been extended to the. Rodrigues Regional Assembly These changes are dealt with in details in the. relevant Chapters of Volume II Part I of this Report. Structure of the Report, 1 25 As the organisation structures are linked to and depend upon the mandate of the. Commissions Divisions and the pay structures are based on the number of levels in. the organisation structures the Bureau considers that for this present review. exercise it would be practical to look at both structures i e organisation and pay. Commissionwise Divisionwise as it was the case in past reviews Such an approach. would besides emphasising the link between the mandates of the. departments divisions and their structures facilitate the treatment of specific issues. proper to each department division, 1 26 The recommendations related to organisation design and pay structures have. therefore been made under the respective Commissions Divisions The Master. Conversion Table is given at Annex I,Pay Review 2016 6. Rodrigues Regional Assembly Introduction, 1 27 In the introduction in respect of each Commission Division we have wherever. possible defined and spelt out clearly the goals objectives and future orientations. for our users and have emphasised the link between the mandate of each. Commission Division and the pay and grading structures a link primordial in the. context of the drive to inculcate a performance management culture in the Public. Sector In defining the mandates we have had the collaboration and inputs from all. parties more particularly management which we acknowledge. 7 Pay Review 2016,Rodrigues Regional Assembly Introduction.
