Modifications to the organisational structure were necessary to implement Attrition Policy, and to fine-tune responsibilities and objectives, while maintaining the fit between organisational strategy, resources, structure and processes. Internal and external opportunities would create a culture which is conducive to, and supportive of innovation and change.
The Ministry has included the recommendations of the Final Report on a Review of the Functions and Organisational Structure of the Department of Labour of Grenada. As a consequence, the administrative functions is expected to be in line with the ILO Standards contained in ILO Convention No 150 and Recommendation 158 on Labour Administration.
The essential elements of the recommendations are:
Industrial Relations/Labour Relations;
Labour and Safety Inspections;
Manpower and Employment Services;
Research and Labour Statistics;
Regional and International Affairs.
Equally important are the nine (9) main interventions and thirty four (34) recommendations contained in the Report on the Strengthening of Personnel expenditures and the Action Plan for the Ministry of Labour.
The main strategic interventions are:
Human Resource Planning, Job analysis;
Training and Development;
Transformational Human resource Management;
These changes will allow the Ministry to perform effectively and optimise the consistencies between its strategies, structure, staff capacity and processes. An important underlying factor to the success of these changes depends on the multiplicity of positive attitude to ensure that the efforts of the Ministry are well coordinated, directed and guided towards the achievement of goals.
