Frequently Asked Questions
The Civil Service Reform
As part of the Pilot, we will:
- Evaluate the organizational structures of the agencies participating in the Pilot so that they are aligned with the vision and future objectives of the government.
- Review compensation to ensure uniformity and competitive salaries.
- Modernize and digitize the recruitment process to attract and retain talent in the government.
- Design an employee evaluation system to support the development of skills and competencies to promote professional growth and advancement.
Organizational Changes and Salary Adjustments
The main objective of the salary adjustments of the Reform is to ensure that every employee receives a competitive salary and that there is salary equity within each agency. It is important to clarify that the Reform does not reduce salaries. Using public and private labor market data, we can ensure that government salaries are competitive and equitable for all positions.
With the compensation analysis, each pilot employee was assigned a new job classification using the Uniform Classification Plan developed by OATRH, which is now available on the agency’s website. Each job specification was reviewed and compared to job descriptions in surveys with compensation information of all industries in the Puerto Rico labor market.
