STAFF AUDIT UPDATE
The reasons why the audit is necessary include:
To obtain accurate data for analysis of the current staffing situation; To take stock of skills/competencies and create a skills inventory;
To generate data that will inform re-designation plan;
To accurately inform the inpost status of the staff establishment; and, To capture the current deployment status.
The staff are required to present the following for verification: Academic and professional certificates National ID Card; 2 Coloured passport size photographs;
Letter of 1st Appointment, Promotion and/or upgrading letters 3 pay slips; and,
Letter of current deployment. At the audit centre:
The officer presents him/herself in person;
Present the required documents for verification originals and copies;
The officer takes back the originals and leave the copies with the audit team; and,
Signs off in a departmental register.
WHERE WE ARE AT:
In the week preceding the audit the board held well-attended sensitization meetings with staff in their respective departments. The process started and has proceeded smoothly. The audit started on 24th June 2019, the first station being Nanyuki at the County social hall. Overall, the turnout has been very good and staff have been very cooperative. As at close of business on 9th July 2019, 877 members of staff had presented themselves and gone through the verification exercise. The number will rise significantly by close of the week as staff from the Department of Health & Medical Services are being audited from 10th through 12th July 2019.
The exercise will thereafter continue until 2nd August 2019 where staff will be audited in Nyahururu, Rumuruti and Doldol are set to be audited.
It is expected that CGL staff will derive the following benefits, among others, from the audit exercise:
Finalization of staff establishment and organogram;
Right-placing of staff skills matched with roles;
Re-designation of officers to appropriate offices;
Improved staff motivation/job satisfaction, hence enhanced productivity; and,
Training programs to address identified skill gaps.
The citizens will enjoy better service delivery if the staff are motivated and have the right skills therefore giving them value for their money.
