Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

PREFACE In consonance with its role as the central human resource institution of the Philippine Government and in line with its vision of becoming Asias leading Center of Excellence for Strategic Human Resource and Organizational Development by 2030, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) designed an Agency Strategic Human Resource (HR) Plan Toolkit anchored on Civil Service Law and Rules to serve as guide in developing the Agency Strategic HR Plan. This Toolkit consists of three (3) chapters, as follows: Chapter 1 - Overview: Understanding and Appreciating the Strategic HR Plan Chapter 2 - Getting Started: Essential Elements in Carrying Out the Strategic HR Plan Chapter 3 - Strategic HR Planning Process: Procedural Guidelines in the Development of a Strategic Plan
This Toolkit offers a step-by-step guide to Agency key players in crafting their Agency Strategic HR Plan. In fact, the Commission already prepared and

compiled a wide array of HR templates which may be customized for Agencys use. The Agency Strategic HR Plan is everybodys business and not only that of the Agencys HRM Practitioner. The support of top management and full cooperation of every member are vital.

Chapter 1:
OVERVIEW: Understanding and Appreciating the Strategic HR Plan

It is every persons duty to attain perfection.


- Jose P. Rizal

Legal Basis The Civil Service Commission, as the central personnel agency of the government, shall establish a career service and adopt measures to promote morale, efficiency, integrity, responsiveness, progressiveness, and courtesy in the civil service. It shall strengthen the merit and rewards system, integrate all human resources development programs for all levels and ranks, and institutionalize a management climate conducive to public accountability.
(Section 3, Article IX B, 1987 Phil. Const)

The development and retention of a competent and efficient workforce in the public service is a primary concern of government. It shall be the policy of the government that a continuing program of career and personnel development be established for all government employees for all levels. An integrated national plan for career and personnel development shall serve as the basis for all career and personnel development activities in the government (Sec 30,
Revised Administrative Code on Civil Service)

Each Department or agency shall prepare a career and personnel development Plan which shall be integrated into a national plan by the Commission. Such career and personnel development plans shall include provisions on merit promotion, performance evaluation, inservice training including overseas and local scholarship and training grants , job rotation, suggestions and award incentive system, and such other provisions for employees health, welfare, counseling, recreation and similar services. (Sec. 31, Revised Administrative Code on
Civil Service)

In line with its mandate and in cognizance of its vision of becoming Asias Leading Center of Excellence for Strategic Human Resource and Organizational Development by 2030, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) designed an Agency Strategic Human Resource (HR) Toolkit anchored on Civil Service Law and Rules to serve as guide in developing the Agency Strategic HR Plan.

WHAT IS THE AGENCY STRATEGIC HR PLAN? The Agency Strategic HR Plan is a Human Resource roadmap which defines or provides direction for the Agency in the development and implementation of programs that are aligned with the Agency Strategic Plan of government agencies or Executive-Legislative Agenda or Annual Investment Plan for LGUs to ensure high employee performance and organizational productivity. As such, essential elements are focused on the acquisition, development, retention, and proper management of HR as well as addressing gaps and proposing interventions. It is aimed at capturing the people element of what an agency is hoping to achieve in the medium to long term, ensuring that: it has the right people in place; it has the right mix of skills; employees display the right attitudes and behaviors; and employees are developed in the right way with enabling mechanisms and appropriate strategies.

HOW WILL THE AGENCY BENEFIT? If a Strategic HR Plan is in place, the agency will be able to equip employees to effectively accomplish the Agencys programs, projects, and flagship priorities. In the long run, the organization will boast of a contented and motivated workforce that succeeds in their work endeavors and reaches greater fulfillment and competitive advantage in their career; greater work efficiency and productivity since knowledge, skills and attitudes are channeled in the right place; HR systems that are easier to utilize, manage, monitor as well as useful in the Agencys future endeavors (e.g. fulfillment of requirements for the accreditation of agencies, assessment of new programs and activities, etc.); highly satisfied Offices that accomplish their plans; higher benefits and rewards as a result of efficiency; heightened Agency integrity for successfully providing the services it is mandated to deliver; and very satisfied public/clientele who reap the full rewards of efficient government service.

The illustration below provides an overview on where the Agency Strategic HR Plan lies on the entire Agencys scheme of things from its mission and vision up to its realization of goal which is client satisfaction.

The Agency Strategic Plan serves as the basic reference point for an HR Plan. The success in crafting an Agency Strategic HR Plan depends on the commitment, readiness and enthusiasm of the Agency and its key players as well as sufficient knowledge on the important elements to consider in its development and implementation. These considerations along with how to go about it will be discussed fully and in detail in the succeeding chapters.

Chapter 2:
GETTING STARTED: Essential Elements in Developing the Strategic HR Plan

So you have to force yourself out of a comfort zone and really try to figure out what are the key ingredients, the key skill sets, the key perspectives that are necessary, and then figure out a way to attract the very best people to fill those particular roles.
~Steve Case, co-founder and former chief executive officer and chairman of America Online (AOL)

The requisites in developing the Agency Strategic Plan are as follows: 1. Organizational Profile; 2. Agency Strategic Plan or Roadmap; and 3. Key Players Organizational Profile A study of the entire agency, and the key challenges it faces. This includes the Agencys Vision, Mission, Core Values, and Organizational Statement. Agency Strategic Plan The Agency's defined strategy and direction, programs and projects in pursuing its goals, as well as in making decisions on allocating its resources (i.e. time, money, human resources, and materials). The Agency Strategic Plan is vital since it provides directions in the pursuit of Agency goals and objectives. It ensures that efforts are not wasted on programs not related to the thrust and mandate of the Agency. Key Players The Key Players have strategic roles and responsibilities in the development and implementation of the agency strategic HR Plan. They are the: 1. Agency HR Champion; 2. HR Planning Team; and 3. HRM Office. An official directive should be issued specifically designating the key players and defining their roles, as follows:
Agency HR Champion Criteria Preferably the highest official incharge of HR in the agency with a track record in HR transformation and organizational development HR Planning Team Comprises the following: Heads of offices of: HR/Personnel Planning Admin/Finance Other Office Representatives Employees Association Representative HRM Office A group of trained and experienced HRMPs from the Agencys Human Resource Management Office

Chapter 3:
STRATEGIC HR PLANNING PROCESS: Procedural Guidelines in the Development of a Strategic HR Plan

The journey of a thousand miles begins in a single stepin the right direction.
(Ms. Tess Tolosa HR consultant, taking off from a Chinese proverb)

Strategic HR Planning Process entails six (6) major steps, as follows: Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6 Organizational Profiling Competency Mapping HR Systems Check Prioritizing Gaps and Proposing Interventions Instituting a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework Communicating the Strategic HR Plan

Step 1 Organizational Profiling Organization profile contains the following, but not limited to: a) Agencys vision, mission, and value statements; b) Strategies in the form of measurable goals, and objectives with reference to Executive/Legislative Agenda or Annual Investment Plan for LGUs, Strategic Plan or Agency PGS Scorecard for other agencies; and c) Human resources (number, issues, quality and role in the organization). Organizational profiling is done by the following actions and outputs:

1. Review of Vision, Mission and Strategic Objectives The Vision describes where the organization is headed and what it intends to be. Mission is the reason for the Agencys existence and provides the best rationale for the Agencys Strategic Plan. These principles are then supported by the Agencys corporate culture or Value Statements which define how people want to behave with each other in the organization... are statements about how the organization will value customers, suppliers, and the internal community... [and] describe actions which are the living enactment of the fundamental values held by most individuals within the organization (Adapted from Susan M. Heathfield, About.com Build a Strategic Framework: Mission Statement, Vision, Values ...).
Designed by the Civil Service Commission Page 6

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

The following is a sample of the CSCs enhanced Vision, Mission, Values Statement and Agency Strategic Priorities lifted from the five-year CSC Roadmap (attached under Annex B).
CSC VISION: For 2015: A model of excellence in the service of the Filipino People. For 2030: Asias Leading Center of Excellence for Strategic Human Resource and Organizational Development. CSC MISSION: We, as the central human resource institution and as adviser to the President on personnel management of the Philippine Government, exist to be the forerunner in: Upholding merit, justice and fairness Building competence, expertise and character Ensuring delivery of quality public services and products Institutionalizing workplace harmony and wellness Fostering partnership and collaboration VALUES: Inspired by the Filipino dignity and the unique values of Pagmamalasakit, Bayanihan and Pagmamahal sa Diyos at Bayan We Commit Integrity in our Decisions Transparency and Accountability in our Actions Respect in our Relationships Efficiency and Excellence in our Services STRATEGIC PRIORITIES: I II III IV V VI Developing Competent and Credible Civil Servants Exemplifying Integrity and Excellence in Public Service Cultivating Harmony, Morale and Wellness in the Workplace Effective and Efficient Performance of Quasi-Judicial Functions Building Partnerships and Strengthening Linkages Managing Support Mechanisms

2. Conduct of HR Inventory
Designed by the Civil Service Commission Page 7

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

An HR Inventory is necessary to identify the current capability and skills of employees, provide information on what the employees can do, and identify the current or future threat/s to the Agencys ability to perform. In the absence of an existing baseline data of the HR complement of the Agency, the service profile or 201 file of employees may be utilized. Updating of employee Personal Data Sheet (PDS) is required in order to acquire the information. Sample Templates B1 and B2 found in Annex A may be used to generate information in coming up with an HR inventory of the Agency. Template B1 provides extensive information of Agencys personnel complement. The information gathered will be grouped according to status of employment (as defined in MC 40, s. 1998), and levels of positions (as enumerated in the Omnibus Rules Implementing Book V of EO 292) and remuneration (using the latest NBC and LBC). Template B2 is a summary of the number of personnel in various categories (i.e. employees Age, Educational Attainment and Length of Service in the Current Position and in the Government, Employment Status, and other pertinent information that may be deemed appropriate to generate data from the HR Inventory.)

3. Determine Job Requirements The key goal in HR planning is to get the right number of people with the right skills, experience/s and competencies in the right jobs at the right time at the right cost. This will require determining the right job requirements for the Agencys strategic priorities. After accomplishing Columns 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of Template A, the head of the lead office of each program, project or activity will identify the following: a) b) c) d) Job - Required key positions to produce the identified deliverables; Job Description - Duties and responsibilities; Competencies - knowledge, skills and attitudes; and Number of employees.

Agency will be guided by the sample below:

These employees will be the respondents to the job analysis that will be conducted. The Agency may adopt the Job Analysis Questionnaire (Annex C) or design other forms or questionnaire appropriate to the Agency. Actual functions, specific tasks, duties and competencies of employees relative to their involvement to the identified program, project and activities will be culled out from the identified respondents. (For a more comprehensive job analysis, all the employees in the Agency may be asked to answer the questionnaire.)

Having identified the job requirement and the competencies needed to perform the job required of an employee, the required versus the current HR competencies will be plotted using Template C1. The attached competency inventory and assessment tool in Annex E can be a helpful guide in identifying the Agencys human resource competencies and its operational definition and competency level. However, other competency inventory guides may also be used. In doing so, the following factors will be taken into consideration: number of people required to have these competencies; number of people who currently have these competencies; and reasons (factual and objective) for not having the required competencies.

Using Templates A, B1 and B2, the above data will appear in the sample accomplished Template C2 below.

6. Conduct Gap Analysis


Designed by the Civil Service Commission Page 11

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

After identifying required and current HR competencies of the Agency, gaps will surface. Possible recommendations for improvement will be determined to bridge the gaps. Below is a sample of the results of the Competency Gap Analysis.
Competency Gap Analysis First Level There are only nine (9) first level employees who have the competency on records keeping. Of the 9, only 1 has the competency level of competent. Five (5) of them have basic knowledge while the three (3) have minimal knowledge on records keeping. No Training and Development Programs in place to enhance skills and knowledge of First Level employees.

Second Level There are no competent personnel in the Administrative Service who are knowledgeable and competent in Information Technology Development. The current market trend, high demand and strong job competition with the private sector prevents the Agency from recruiting personnel with this skill.

Executive Managerial There are executives who still lack competency on Knowledge Management because the Agency has not allocated budget for Executive Development Programs. Also, there are no Career Pathing and Succession Planning Programs in place to provide development opportunities for second level employees to advance in their career and acquire managerial skills.

7. Identify and Rank HR Issues and Concerns After going through the entire process, HR issues and concerns will be identified. These issues may be captured by reviewing the performance evaluation results of the employees in the Agency or through the Journals which Supervisors maintain to monitor subordinates performance, and to record critical incidents and/or avert any untoward incident or address constraints and challenges, if any. Likewise, it can be viewed through personnel records such as employee dismissals, early retirements, dissatisfaction of varying kinds, etc. Note that the focus is on the people issues that affect the implementation of the Agency Strategic Priorities as they relate to the HR Plan. Feedback from employees may also be gathered through a workshop or survey using Annex D Supervisors Observation Checklist which describes job performance areas that indicate employee issues, and signals the action the Agency should take. Similar tools that fit the Agency may be devised. From the list of answers gathered, the most common and top five (5) priority issues that need to be addressed through appropriate HR interventions and development strategies will be identified using Template E.
Designed by the Civil Service Commission Page 12

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

People Issues e.g. Lack of capacity Low morale Frequent absenteeism / tardiness Fast turnover of employees

Step 3 HR Systems Check

Taking off from the results of Gap Analysis and the top five (5) people issues, HR Systems should be looked into whether they exist and are operational. This process will help in formulating the appropriate interventions, as shown in the sample template below (Template F).

Employee Health and Wellness Assessment An assessment of Employees Health and Wellness is indispensable in HR Planning. A healthy employee predicates good performance and optimum productivity. Reference is made to CSC MC No. 30, s. 1994 (Checklist of Reasonable Working Conditions in the Public Sector) and other CSC Issuances on Health and Wellness should be used as basic references. Attached Template G provides a sample checklist of such programs and facilities, for reference.

Step 4 Prioritizing Gaps and Proposing Interventions

Building on data gathered on related HR gaps (e.g. low personnel, job and competency complement, non-operational or absence of certain HR systems, poor or absence of wellness programs/services and facilities) and its corresponding HR interventions (learning and development interventions, staffing and placement strategies, job enlargement/job enrichment, health and wellness programs, HR mechanisms, and/or other interventions), decision and agreement will be made as to which of these interventions, HR actions, systems and mechanisms will have to be pursued. These will be examined in view of their importance to the Agencys organizational goals, realities, and constraints. Identified needs will be determined if they are real, if they are worth addressing, and will be specified according to their importance and urgency. HR gaps will be prioritized and corresponding interventions determined using Template H. This will be clustered according to 1) Organization; 2) HR Competency; 3) HR Systems; 4) Health and Wellness Programs. A sample action plan is shown below:

Step 5 Instituting a Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanism

In the previous activities, HR gaps (Organization, HR competency, and HR Systems), and propose HR interventions to address the gaps were identified and prioritized. At this point, a Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanism will be used in assessing the progress of the proposed HR interventions in line with the expected results. This will be a comprehensive appraisal that looks at the long-term impacts of the propositions, and exposes what worked, what did not, and what should be done differently in future endeavors.
Designed by the Civil Service Commission Page 15

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

One model that may be used to monitor and evaluate the status and relevance of the proposed HR Plan is shown in Template I). Agencies are, however, encouraged to use different frameworks that will fit the nature and demands of the particular Agency. The status of Plan implementation as well as its percentage of success should be reported by the HR Office to the Head of Agency.

Step 6 Communicating the Strategic HR Plan


Designed by the Civil Service Commission Page 16

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

The final step of the planning process is to strategize on how to communicate most efficiently and effectively the right information to the right people at the right time. It will help in ensuring that all employees, internal and external clients of the Agency have the information they need to be able to play their expected role as well as respond accordingly, relative to the Strategic HR Plan implementation. Below are the suggested elements which may be considered in crafting the communication plan:
Goal To effectively and efficiently communicate the Agency Strategic HR Plan to all officials and employees of the organization and its stakeholders. To prepare the organization on the impending organizational change and personnel movements within the organization Target Audience Internal Management Department Heads Employees Association Rank and File employees Contractual and Job Order employees External: Development Partners Clients media Objectives To provide information and awareness about the Agency Strategic HR Plan; To create transparency in HR management and development ; To gain support from decision and policy makers, and stakeholders in funding Agency programs, projects, and activities Medium Memorandum Circular Press Release Briefing Information Advisories Web pop-up Flyers General Assembly Consultation Meetings General Orientation on Change Management Status Reports Desired Results High level of awareness on the Agency Strategic HR Plan Better appreciation of the HR management and development program Funding for capacity development Strategic mobilization of Human and financial resources Acceptance of and support for the implementatio n of the Agency Strategic HR Plan Timeline 1 month to 3 months Lead Office HRM Office

From what was accomplished, human resource planning becomes closely tied to the needs and strategies of the Agency. This will be the thread that ties together all other human resource activities and integrates them with the rest of the organization.

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

The final challenge in human resource planning is balancing current with future organizational and employee needs. Achieving this balancing act depends on whether employees are currently at the right place doing the right things with the flexibility to adapt to different activities when organizational change is needed.

Proposed discussion points of key players include the following: Alignment of HR Plan to the Agency Strategic Plan Agency Heads Commitment to fiscal resource mobilization Impact on and changes to HR policies, practices and systems Individual Staff contributions to HR Plan Implementation Support to the Staff if there are changes in HR policies Meeting the Challenge, Shaping Future HR Profile

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

PROPOSED SUCCESSION PLANNING GUIDELINES FOR THE PHILIPPINE CIVIL SERVICE I. CONCEPT 1. Leadership is essential in providing direction in attaining the thrusts of an organization especially in the public sector where continuous public service delivery is crucial. 2. Leadership does not just happen nor exercised by anyone at any given time. 3. It takes years to groom an effective leader. 4. In the hierarchy of positions or in a table of organization, leaders are seen in the ranks of supervisors, managers, executives. 5. Should there be a vacancy in these ranks, an important question arises: Who succeeds? Is the successor qualified to assume the duties of subject positions? Is the successor ready? 6. The matter of succession planning becomes then an imperative.

II. Legal Bases Section I, Chapter 1, Book V, E.O. 292 xxx the Civil Service Commission, as the central personnel agency of the Government shall establish a career service, adopt measures to promote morale, efficiency, integrity, responsiveness, and courtesy in the civil service, strengthen the merit and rewards system, xxx. Advancement to higher position, particularly to a supervisorial, managerial and executive is done either through designation or promotion. Section I, Rule VI, Rules Implementing Book V of E.O. 292 - Promotion is the advancement of an employee from one position to another with an increase in duties and responsibilities as authorized by law, and usually accompanied by an increase in salary. (underscoring supplied) A comparative degree of competence and qualification shall be determined in matters of promotion. Other than performance, education and training, experience and outstanding accomplishments, physical characteristics and personality traits, potential is an indispensable requisite for advancement to a higher position. Section V, Rule VI, Rules Implementing Book V of E.O. 292 (e) Potential this takes into account the employees capability not only to perform the duties and assume the responsibilities of the position to be filled but also those of higher and more responsible positions. (underscoring supplied) CSC MC No. 15, s. 1999 Designation is merely an imposition of additional duties to be performed by a public official which is temporary and can be terminated anytime at the pleasure of the appointing authority. (underscoring supplied)

Agency Strategic HR Plan Toolkit

Rules on Appointment and Guidelines on Designation shall be adhered to on the matter of succession III. WHAT IS SUCCESSION PLANNING A process of preparing an individual who will take the role of a manager or a leader in the organization by providing appropriate competencies and experiences to ensure continuity of management. It is a systematic approach that enables an organization to identify talented employees and provide development opportunities to fill key or critical organizational positions. The real key in succession planning is to create a match between the organizations future needs and the qualifications of a potential candidate for succession. Succession planning serves as an interface between the human resource functions and the strategic direction of an organization.

IV.

SUCCESS FACTORS OF SUCCESSION PLANNING 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Personal involvement of senior leaders Accountability of senior leaders for growing leaders Commitment of employees toward self-development Linkage between strategic planning and talent investment in the future Reliable workforce data and analysis Emphasis on leadership competencies as basis for selection and development 7. Use of deep selection process regardless of rank and position 8. Prioritization for identification and development of a pool of talent

I.

CONCEPT 1. Looking at the spectrum of human resource management, emphasis on development is given from entry to the middle stage of ones career in an organization. 2. The development of human resources, particularly at the public sector should be a continuing process given the demands of public service delivery. It should not stop however, at the years preceding retirement. 3. A look at development interventions provided to different levels and stages of a civil servants working life in the government service are few if at all available to prospective retirees. 4. This is also true with respect to giving rewards and recognition to them. 5. It is thus indispensable in Valuing HR and Transforming HR in government that an ultimate Pre-Retirement Program is in place.

II.

Legal Bases 1. Rule VIII of the Omnibus Rules Implementing Book V of Executive Order 292: SECTION 1. Every official and employee of the government is an asset or resource to be valued, developed and utilized in the delivery of basic services to the public.
