by Vitaly Vanshelboim, Chief of JPO SC

  • Conducted, on a pilot basis, several regional workshops. New concept is being tested.
  • Four client surveyswere conducted online, involving donors, COs, JPOs, HQs bureaux and UN agencies. The level of dissatisfaction with our services was less than 1%. COs without JPOs were not included.
  • Global Staff Survey (for JPOs – most critical)
  • Global Staff Survey (breakdown by CO)
  • A Critical Path Analysis project was finalized, the workflow and chain of approvals got streamlined.

  • Work shadowing exchanges.
  • Some 50% of our donors agreed to fund a one-day orientation briefing in Copenhagen for the JPOs en-route to their new duty station.
  • A 24-hour hotline was established to deal with urgent matters: critical counseling, security incidents, medical evacuations, etc.
  • A mentoring programme has been initiated, on a pilot basis, with some 50 JPOs participating.
  • Counseling: PPO courses where HRAs will conduct one-on-one meetings, workshops, telephone.
  • Life Insurance policy
  • COB on the last day of the month
  • ALD options
  • MoUs with 17 donors re-signed.
  • Publications

  • Negotiations ongoing with 42 prospective donors
  • Other UN and non-UN agencies
  • Private sector, etc.
  •  The website was further developed, now available in 3 languages and offering a plethora of relevant information to various stakeholders. In particular, a number of self-service features were added. The number of visitors to the website has increased from less than 10,000 in the last quarter of 2001 to about 80,000 (or about 650,000 clicks) in the first quarter of 2003.
  • An online database of former JPOs was increased to 1,700 names, paving the way for the launch of a mentoring programme and an alumni association.
  • A customer relationship management system (paperless office + much more) was implemented, representing a pilot for UNDP.
  • An online recruitment system was implemented, automating the entire recruitment cycle.
  • An application was developed offering protected online access to salary statements.
  • An application was created letting donors make calculations as to cost of assignment in a given duty station.

  • An electronic signature project was implemented.
  • An online offer package project was fine-tuned.
