Department’s DG Nkosinathi Nhleko visits Eastern Cape on report-back tour on organisational review

by lloyd last modified 2013-02-22 16:29


The Department of Labour Director General (DG) Nkosinathi Nhleko is to visit the Eastern Cape to engage with staff on the progress achieved to date on the organisational review strategy - Project Shanduka - which is designed to unlock service delivery.

Shanduka - meaning change -  currently being implemented, is an organisational change management strategy designed to revitalise the department. The strategy was initiated last year following a DG fact finding mission and consultative process undertaken between July 2011-September 2011. The visits will be held at Eastern Cape Training Centre in Port Elizabeth and in East London at Osner Hotel at 10am respectively.

Subsequent to the DGs Roadshows these were followed by Shanduka Roadshows around August-September 2012. A commitment was made to staff to report-back on the progress in the implementation of Shanduka.

A problem statement designed found that the Department is not functioning as a single entity and there is generally a lack of uniformity in how it is currently configured.

It further pointed out that there is duplication of functions, dilution of core and support functions, tendency to resort to piece meal approach when dealing with organisation’s structural matters and  sub-optimal allocation and distribution of human resources and service delivery points.

As a result of these impediments it was found that these affect faster and efficient service delivery.

Nhleko recently said: “The strategy is already being implemented. It will address lack of tools of trade, the optimal utilisation of people according to their competence, full utilisation of resources and deal with issues of accommodation. Where necessary resources will be reallocated to address service delivery at coal face”.

To date, Nhleko has visited Cape Town and George in the Western Cape; Durban and Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal. His next stop is expected to be Northern Cape next month.
