Supporting reforms to reinforce efficient and high quality public administrations

Innovative human resources management in Ireland

This project supported the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in its efforts to introduce strategic human resources management in the Irish civil service. Following a series of one-to-one sessions, discussions and extensive design processes, the project helped to develop a blueprint for the future HR operating model and a work plan for its implementation.

Through capacity reallocation, human resources management is being able to focus on real issues, such as strategic workforce planning and talent management. Furthermore, the recommended creation of a cross-department project team is helping deliver the reforms across the entire civil service.
