Assessment of our people management priorities for 2002-03
Results of the second year people management benchmarking audit
Early in 2003 the department's results from the ANAO people management benchmarking audit were received. The audit found that many of the department's people management practices were performing well. The audit highlighted the need for work in a number of areas and task forces were asked to recommend changes to improve our systems including:
- improving the efficiency of our recruitment process to improve business outcomes
- achieving better alignment in our performance management systems
- revising the secretary's statement of skills to help ensure organisation outcomes are better understood.
The audit also highlighted some issues about the adoption of workforce planning. The task forces have developed their recommendations and, after consideration by the People Management Committee, actions will be implemented during the second half of 2003.
