Ministry of Labour Issues New Job Performance Measurement System for Civil Servants

The Ministry of Labour recently issued a new System for Job Performance Measurement that applies to civil servants. This system requires all civil servants to set objectives and key results to be achieved during a specific period of time that are tied to the strategic goals of the entity and as agreed with their respective line managers. The system identifies five grades for the evaluation of civil servants, and stipulates that the names of those achieving the highest scores are published within the government entity in question.

The Ministry of Labour has been trialling this system under a programme named “Ejada” since the beginning of 2022. The issuance of this system marks its graduation from being a trial and its official adoption as a requirement on all civil government units.
