Key considerations in reforming the government compensation system
Abstract:With agencies now forced to restructure and "do more with less", ensuring continuous employee commitment has become a priority. Given that employees have to perceive changes positively, it may be that a new compensation system should be implemented in stages. It is recommended that projects to replace existing systems involve five phases: i) confirmation of the need for change; ii) collection of evidence for decision making; iii) planning and development of the new system; iv) implementation; and v) evaluation. Prior to implementation, top management should commit to system assessment at the end of each year, and to correcting problems as soon as they are detected.
