Competency in public service is key to development - Kinyua
Posted on Friday, November 11, 2016 @ 12:16:42 CST by kwpnews


NAIROBI (PSCU) -The Public service sector needs to strengthen the culture of competency to improve performance and service delivery, Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua has said.

Mr Kinyua said competency could be boosted through measures that reward high achievers.

 He was speaking this morning when he presided over the release of Job Evaluation Results for Public Service at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Nairobi.

 Mr Kinyua said a culture of competency would make Kenya an economic giant.

“Results based management therefore, would be used as a management tool that enables us realize the development goals set out in Vision 2030,” said Mr. Kinyua.

The Head of Public Service said fairness and transparency have already become important features in public affairs and governance.

“Indeed the past years, prior to the promulgation of the Constitution it was unusual to reveal the salary of the President. But today the salary of state officers is in public domain, it is a measure of how far we have progressed in our public affairs,” said Mr. Kinyua.

He said over the years, the Government has emerged as the employer of choice for Kenyans but asked the relevant agencies to check if they are attracting people with the right skills to deliver quality services.

“This is what the tax payers will expect the agencies like SRC, Public Service Commission and other such agencies to bear in mind to ensure we also develop the capacity of the public officers to be effective in the delivery of their duties,” he said.

 Mr Kinyua urged all government agencies to invest in strategies that boost productivity and performance.

 He said Kenya needs to emulate countries like Malaysia that have developed programmes to equip workers with skills that enhance productivity to reduce wastage.

  “We are living in a competitive global economy where the country is facing intense competition from the neighbouring countries for foreign direct investment,” he pointed out.

 Mr Kinyua also called on Salaries and Remuneration Commission to ensure that the expenditure on public wage bill is affordable and fiscally sustainable.

 He said the rate at which the public sector wage bill has increased over the few years has seriously constrained the capacity of the Government to allocate enough resources for operation and maintenance, and development programmes.

 The Principal Secretary, Public Service and Youth Mrs. Lillian Mbogo Omollo, who spoke on behalf of the Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki, said the job evaluation exercise is timely saying the objective is to bring comparative worthy of jobs.

 Other speakers included the Chairperson of Public Service Commission Professor Margaret Kobia and the Chairperson of Salaries and Remuneration Commission Sarah Serem.
