Public Employment and Management Working Party

 

The Public Employment and Management (PEM) Working Party serves as a collaborative forum and platform for policy-makers and experts from public sector entities entrusted with civil service management responsibilities. The working party collectively addresses major PEM and HRM challenges. Its goal is to strengthen the performance and strategic orientation of public sector organisations by helping countries to improve human resource investments, management and development to create the conditions for inclusive growth and resilient economies. 

The PEM Working Party last met on 26-27 March 2018, to discuss how to ensure civil services are fit for purpose and ready to address 21st century governance challenges. The Working Party is currently developing the first OECD instrument on civil service capability.
