Redeployment Guidance, 04/04/2020
Other than key workers, most public servants are working from home. The need to ensure that front line colleagues are focused on supporting Covid 19 activities, significant workforce redesign and redeployment has been needed.
To support redeployment many PPMA members have been asking staff to volunteer and provided information that can support a redeployment. For many organisations, this need to re-adjust workforces has accelerated existing workforce planning (WP) activities. For those who don’t currently do this work, this exercise is capturing the data needed to provide a strong foundation for future strategic workforce planning.
This section includes redeployment questionnaires and staff communications. Questions about the contractual elements of redeployment are included in the Pay and Ts & Cs section.
