“THE implementation and accomplishment of ‘succession plans’ for government agencies are a collective responsibility especially of senior managements, heads of departments and permanent secretaries.”
This was highlighted by guest of honour, Awang Jaini bin Haji Abdullah, Director-General of Public Service, during the certification presentation ceremony for participants of the ‘Implementing Succession Plans Workshop’ at the Civil Service Institute in Kg Rimba, yesterday.
The attendees comprised 13 participants from departments under the Prime Minister’s Office such as the Adat Istiadat Negara; Information Department; Radio Televisyen Brunei (RTB); Audit Department; Attorney General’s Chambers; State Mufti’s Office and Government Printing Department.
“I hope participants can apply the new knowledge learnt through this workshop in their daily duties. The strong support from heads of departments and senior management plays a crucial role in achieving success as they are the ‘champions’ in the succession plans in their respective departments.”
Prior to the ceremony, a recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah and Doa Selamat were held.
The workshop was organised by the Public Service Department (JPA) as a continuation of the briefing conducted throughout ministries and to share information and knowledge on implementing the ‘Succession Plans’ system. The content included an introduction to Implementing the Succession Plans, competency model, development and talent management as well as the formation of ‘Individual Development Plan’.
