SRC held stakeholders job evaluation sensitization workshops on June 29 and 30, 2016. Stakeholders drawn from Disciplined Services Sector; and Research, Public and Tertiary Educational Institutions Sector were sensitized on the job evaluation process. The exercise for the two sectors is expected to be completed in November, 2016.

SRC has contracted The Consortium (AON Kenya Insurance Brokers Ltd, MUCMAR Management Concept Ltd and PARKER RANDALL East Africa) to undertake job evaluation for these two sectors. Several institutions are to be evaluated during this exercise. In the Disciplined Services Sector, there are 8 sub sectors including Kenya Defence Forces which has three service units; National Intelligence Services; Kenya Police Service; Kenya Prisons; Kenya Forestry Services; Kenya Wildlife Service; Witness Protection Agency; and National Youth Service. On the other hand, the Research, Public & Tertiary Educational Institutions comprise of 45 Research Institutions; 59 Tertiary Institutions; and 33 Universities.

The broad objective of this exercise is to evaluate the positions and jobs in the two sectors. Specifically, the job evaluation exercise is expected to determine the comparable worth of jobs and produce a rationalized, harmonized, defensible and equitable grading structure. The results will be used to grade the positions, and develop compensation structures that will be a basis for setting and reviewing remuneration and benefits.

In her opening remarks, the Chairperson of SRC, Mrs. Sarah Serem, noted that the fruits of the exercise will be a better public service, improved performance and productivity, and growth in the economy. “Ultimately, the job evaluation will facilitate development and implementation of equitable and harmonized remuneration and benefits structure within the public service”, she observed.

Following the sensitization workshops, the job evaluation exercise in the two sectors will proceed to the next step that entails nomination of representatives from the various organisations who will undergo training, and thereafter undertake job analysis in their respective institutions. The analysts will not only be part of the sector committees that will conduct the job analysis, but also they will act as change and communication agents in their respective institutions.

Over 470 participants attended the workshops including Cabinet Secretaries, Permanent Secretaries, Inspector General, Vice Chancellors, Heads of Research and Disciplined Service Institutions, Regional and County Commands, Principals, Human Resource Professionals among others.
