Workforce transition

Policies and information on managing staff through organisational changes, including redundancy.

What policies cover workforce transition?

Policies on workforce transition made before the start of the Government Sector Employment Act 2013 stay in place and apply to the Public Service. On 12 August 2014, the Public Service Commissioner notified those policies on workforce transition under Rule 13 of the Government Sector Employment (General) Rules 2014 (see notification of applicable policies).

Agencies should also consult the assignment to role guidelines and the transfer and secondment guidelines.

Agencies should always consider the impact on their people when restructuring – this includes providing early and consistent communication with employees; offering appropriate support; and providing a clear rationale and vision for the change.
