As part of measures to ensure optimum productivity in the public service, the Public Services Commission (PSC) has come up with a revised policy framework on leave entitlements and management for the public services of Ghana.
In the roll-out of the policy framework of the Revised Leave Entitlements, it shall be the responsibility of the Heads of Institutions and the Human Resource Managers to ensure the dissemination of the policy guidelines and the information contained therein to their employees.
The PSC believes the need for a revised leave policy and management of leave types in the Public Service cannot be over-emphasized.
The framework is the lifeline for a productive, healthy and a well managed workforce delivering quality services to the people of Ghana.
‘’ Prudent management of leave does not only save the government money in terms of committal of leave to cash but also promotes good health amongst employees. It also ensures conformity with international best practices in human resource management’’ the commission said.
See the details of the revised framework below.
