Her Excellency the Governor Elizabeth Carriere and the Hon. Minister Delmaude Ryan will head up a Human Resources transformation program called Empowering Excellence. This in accordance to the Governor who says, “Minister Ryan and I have already begun the groundwork to put in place two key mechanisms, a public service task force and a public advisory committee that will ensure input from both the private sector and the public service.”

Under much pressure from media sources and otherwise generally it is often expressed that the operation of the public service and in particular human resources, which is considered the heartbeat of this service, holds a mediocre and sometimes unprofessional attitude.

“We intend to adopt transparent communication on progress through the implementation of this exercise,” the Governor told the media at her most recent press conference on September 23, 2016.

The Governor continued that Minister Ryan and her, will make a further and more detailed announcement once these entities are established and have provided their input into how the work will go forward.

Following up on her criticism earlier of how the public service conducted the business of government and again in particular human resources, the Governor claimed that while some work has been done and is ongoing, the sort of piece meal approach to doing things, while it has yielded some small incremental changes, does not affect the real transformational change that is being sought.,

“So while we may do some of those smart incremental things,” she said, “they will be part of a larger plan,” citing the intention of implementing some aspects of the Public Administration Act, which is not possible immediately until there are regulations in place.

“There are aspects we’re looking at,” she said. “…the code of conduct which is a very good code of conduct – can we implement through other means while the regulations are being drafted?”

The Governor also suggested, “that applies to a number of other things in the act. Some of those things can be done – by changing general orders and so on and so forth.”
