Lots of county government employees are sitting on the edge following Governor Joseph Ole Lenkuโ€™s move to initiate a Human Resource Management Audit.

The exercise, which kicked off on Wednesday, will examine the positions of all county staff. Principally, the audit will weed out any ghost employees, while ensuring all staff perform tasks that are aligned with their skill sets.

There has been rising concern regarding the tendency of employees to make every effort to join the finance department even without the requisite qualifications, leading to a bloated workforce handling revenue collection. It is suspected that the primary motivation for this trend is the opportunity for corrupt earnings โ€“ which are not easily available in other nondescript departments.

The human resource audit will therefore be expected to identify all such problems that affect the county human resource functions and its performance.

In other counties, similar audits seeking to verify the number of employed have led to the unearthing of ghost employees who earn a salary despite doing absolutely nothing. In some cases, the number of drivers have far exceeded the available vehicles, while dead employees have continued to draw salaries.

It is noteworthy that the governor led in the exercise by submitting all required documentation and thus becoming the first county employee to be audited. It is to be hoped that in the same spirit, Lenku will readily implement the audit report that will come out of the exercise, even if this will not be flattering of his administration.

Whenever such exercises are launched by government institutions, it is at the implementation stage that the rubber meets the road. Indeed, government offices are full of reports that were commissioned with fanfare but are left to gather dust owing to the lack of the political will when it comes to implementation.

This time, it is hoped that Lenku will implement long-lasting positive changes owing to the fact that this is his last term in office. He does not need to please anyone for the purpose of winning votes at any future gubernatorial election, putting him in an excellent position to clean up every mess in the county administration.

The staff audit is being conducted by the Institute of Human Resources Management (IHRM) through its consulting outfit, the Human Resource Management Consultancy and Enterprise Services. IHRM is a statutory professional body established under the Human Resource Management Professionals Act.

The exercise by the team of 60 consultants is expected to contribute to the overall efficiency of county staff and help improve service delivery. If successful, the audit will solidify Lenkuโ€™s legacy as a governor who meant well for his people. With a more focused workforce, he can spend the remaining four years of his second term to implement projects in healthcare, education, and infrastructure development. Above all, the residents expect courteous, respectful service delivery from his administration.
