Measuring Progress

Transparent Reporting on Government's Progress

Organizational Capacity

59.6%

Target: Five per cent (5%) increase by 2020

How we are doing now

The following initiatives have been put in place and are being planned to support the attainment of targets:

  1. Introducing the Learning Fund Initiative
  2. Launching new Leadership Development Programs
  3. Launching new Performance Development guides for supervisors and employees
  4. Introduced new Organization and Staff Development workshops and courses
  5. Working on a Job Classification Modernization Project
  6. Recruitment of Workforce Management Advisors to increase capacity on deliverables for departments
  7. Additional training for Labour Relations Officers to increase capacity in negotiations and arbitrations
  8. Developing a strategic plan for the human resource priorities of government

How we measured

The results of the upcoming Employee Engagement Survey (EES) will be compared with the baseline data gathered from the 2018 EES. For every measure, there must be an increase of 5 per cent of the aggregate response of employees who participated in the survey, compared to the baseline data.

How we are doing over time

As we only have baseline data at this time, a chart with a trend line is not possible, but could show targets in the graph.

Why This Matters

Building capacity and harnessing the talents of our diverse employees in an inclusive and respectful work environment is critical to ensuring that Manitoba’s public service is effective and responsive in meeting the complex needs of its citizens.

Next steps

If targets are achieved (GREEN), targets will be increased and new indicators could be added.

If targets are not achieved but close (YELLOW), more resources will be allocated to areas where they are needed but we must also investigate the contributing factors in the measures in which we fell short.

If we will be far off from target (RED), re-evaluation of our data source including the measures will have to be done to eliminate possible subjectivity and multiple interpretation of the measures by data sources.

A new Public Service Act may have an effect on the measure.

Employee learning and development is undergoing a significant transformation. The Organization and Staff Development unit of the Civil Service Commission will be rebranded to function as a hub for training excellence across government.
