Other Projects

There are other projects being implemented across the public sector that will positively impact the management of human resources. These include:

The Public Sector Learning Framework (PSLF) A strategic approach to HR management and development in the public sector will require policies and programmes which facilitate the development of employees across the sector in terms of the skills and competencies needed for the sector to meet its overall strategic goals.

Performance Management and Appraisal System (PMAS) A robust and effective system of performance management, aligned with organisational strategies and objectives is central to the success of human resource management. The system developed by the Cabinet Office, has been implemented in a small number of entities to date. The intention is for the roll out to be restarted after the system has been reviewed and refined where necessary.

Special Early Retirement Programme

The Special Early Retirement Programme (SERP) is for eligible employees between the ages of 50 and 59 years. Under this Programme, eligible persons can choose to retire early. Special incentives have been included in the Programme such as two weeks’ salary for each year of service up to a maximum of one year’s salary and payment in lieu of accumulated vacation leave.

The SERP is designed, as far as possible, to ensure that the process is fair and takes into account both the needs and preferences of the employee and the needs of the employer to ensure that the organisation remains sustainable.  

Eligibility Criteria

To be considered for the SERP, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You are a permanent employee of GoJ;
  • You are vested in your pension plan, i.e. contributing for a minimum of 10 years;
  • You are eligible to retire early as per the rules of your pension plan.

To apply, please complete the application form and submit it to your HR Department.
