As part of efforts to increase productivity and quality of service delivery in the civil service, the Federal Government has introduced new performance management and reward system.
Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, also reiterated her commitment to giving focal and priority attention to capacity building.
According to her, this would be done both at the level of respective Ministries and at service-wide level especially on core values and code of ethics of the Civil Service.
Yemi-Esan spoke during her address at the maiden meeting with Permanent Secretaries, service-wide, Accountant General of the Federation, Auditor-General for the Federation and Surveyor-General of the Federation on Tuesday in Abuja.
She said the new Performance Management System to be put in place to replace the biased and often abused Annual Performance Evaluation Report (APER) would help improve productivity and quality of service delivery in the country.
Director, Information, HOS Office, Olawunmi Ogunmosunle, quoted the Head of Service as saying that
the goal of ensuring stability in the Federal Civil Service would inform decisions and the fulcrum on which other objectives will be linked.
She emphasised that the service will continue to reward and recognize excellence, innovation and dedication.
She affirmed her belief that the “successful implementation of an institutionalized reward and recognition system, will produce well-motivated, disciplined, skilled and accountable Civil Servants”.
