KAMPALA – At least 35 administrative staff at the rank of secretaries and office supervisors were on Tuesday taken through a one day sensitization training on new outputs.
This was in line with Public Service’s generalised outputs for common-cadre positions as per the Establishment Notice No. 2 of 2020.
The training which took place at the Judicial Training Institute in Nakawa was organised by the Human Resources Department and JTI.
In her opening remarks, the Executive Director of JTI, Justice Damalie N. Lwanga, said secretaries and office supervisors are public officers whose performance must be assessed because their output is of interest to the people they interact with at their respective stations and the entire Judiciary.
She informed the participants that the Ministry of Public Service changed the assessment of performance to output oriented assessment, in line with the principles of Result Oriented Management (ROM). The assessment would see public officers agree with their supervisors on key outputs, performance indicators and performance targets.
“The generic outputs would be used to customise the individual outputs to fit into the mandate, Strategic Plan and Annual Performance Plans of the Judiciary,” Justice Lwanga noted.
She urged the participants to adapt and appreciate the new performance appraisal tool to ensure they remain relevant in the workplace.
The Principal Human Resource Officer, Ms. Sandra Jackline Ongom, urged the officers to participate actively, share experiences and ideas so that by the end of the training, they are well equipped to enhance performance at work.
The participants were taken through performance appraisal tools, outputs for secretaries as well as office supervisors, communication and customer care.
The main facilitators were Mr. Adam Mugarura (Assistant Commissioner Public service), Ms. Jackline Nankunda (Senior HR Officer) and H/W Moses Gabriel Angualia, who moderated the session.
