The Treasury Board, in its capacity as employer, has broad responsibilities for people management and leadership excellence, including supporting the associated infrastructure and ensuring an appropriate degree of consistency in people management across the core public administration (CPA). The Classification Program is an integral component of the broader CPA people management agenda, namely as it contributes directly to well managed organizations.
The Classification Program establishes the principles for the sound organization and measurement of work in the CPA; supports the creation of a hierarchy of work to which compensation can be mapped; provides a policy framework, direction and tools to foster the prudent management of the wage bill through appropriate classification decisions and classification relativity across the CPA.
The Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer is leading the implementation of the Classification Program to meet the business requirements of government as well as the needs of managers and employees by:
- defining and reviewing occupational group structures
- reviewing classification standards and qualification standards for all occupational groups
- working with departments on classification oversight to give deputy heads the information they need to exercise their delegated classification authority
- implementing a new classification policy suite,
- representing the employer in all classification grievances
- building and supporting a vibrant and professional classification community, with a learning curriculum.
