When looking to add new skills and competencies to their team, managers must first plan their staffing criteria and select the right staffing options. This online self-paced course reviews the legislative framework that governs staffing in the federal public service and explores staffing requirements, merit criteria, staffing options and other factors influencing the choice of staffing process. Participants will learn about the vision of staffing in the public service, the delegation of staffing authorities, how appointment processes are conducted, the key players involved, and how staffing interacts with the other human resources disciplines.

Topics include:

  • staffing within the legislative framework
  • staffing strategically according to predetermined goals
  • establishing staffing and merit criteria
  • planning and executing a staffing process
  • assessing the staffing types, options and factors influencing the choice of staffing process

Notes:

This course is intended for human resources advisors, managers and anyone else who is interested in learning about staffing in the public service. It consists of two content modules followed by an exam, which serves to assess and validate the knowledge acquired. Participants must finish all three modules to complete this course.

This course has been redesigned to amalgamate the former H200-1, H200-2 and H200-3 courses into a single learning activity and registration process.

This course makes frequent reference to the terms and conditions listed in the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) since most federal public service organizations are subject to this Act.
