Report of the committee for improving the management of human capital in the public sector
The Government decision adopts the report of the committee for promotion of a reform for improving the management of human capital in the public service. According to the decision, special headquarters are to be established at the Civil Service Commission, aimed at implementing the reform's recommendations. The reform covers various topics in the management of human capital in the public service, including: Improved feedback and employee evaluation processes, establishment of a national seminary for training of personnel within the civil service, the drafting of an ethical code for workers, defining term durations for senior staff members, improved tender processes, extending the period of eligibility for tenure, implementing planning proceedings and developing a strategy for human capital in the civil service. The reform will be implemented in stages, starting with a pilot study (at the "Nachshon" offices) with the aim of eventually implementing it in all government ministries and support units.
As at October 2016, it can be said that the decision has been partially implemented. After three and a half years, substantial parts of the reform are in advanced stages of implementation, such as the implementation of feedback and employee evaluation processes, term duration mechanisms, the formation of an ethical code and establishment of the leadership seminary. Other parts of the reform have still not been implemented and are in their initial stages, such as the transition from internal tenders to bi-ministerial ones, simplification of tender processes and the inclusion of excellence in human capital in the civil service. The matter of extending the period of eligibility for tenure has not been promoted at all. In addition, a continued plan to implement the reform following the three years originally defined has not been outlined yet.
