The Office of the Samoa Public Service Commission hosted members from the Tongan Public Service Commission who were in Samoa for a work attachment from 25-29 June 2018.

The Tongan delegation included Dr. Lia Maka (CEO of PSC Tonga), Mr. Tevita F Fotu (Deputy Secretary-Remuneration) and Mr. Keni Franz Tu’uhetoka (Principal Analyst-Remuneration) to learn our mechanics of Human Resource Management practises of Remuneration, Job Classification, contractual employment, Human Resource Development, Planning and working conditions policies.

Established in 2010, the Tongan Public Service Commission’s visit observed and were explained the evolving functions of the Samoa PSC as possible benchmarks for their own future development in the management of human resources.

It was also a valuable opportunity for Samoa PSC to learn of their HR initiatives relating to Job sizing, Performance Pay, and especially the start of building networks with other Pacific islands in sharing knowledge and information on best practise human resource practises.

We wish the Tongan Public Service Commission the very best and that we continue to network for improved HR and public service excellence.
