As part of its ongoing support to Jordan to address the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, the European Union will start training Jordanian public institutions on the newly released ‘Back to Work’ guidance, to create safe workplaces when public servants return to work on 26 May. Through its ‘Support for Improvement in Governance and Management’ (SIGMA) project, the EU aims to train 100 public institutions.

On 12 May, the Prime Ministry circulated the ‘Back to Work’ manual for Government institutions – the first of its kind among the SIGMA beneficiaries. It provides the basis for a safe return to work, by preparing employees to take prevention measures that will safeguard public health and sustain service delivery to citizens.

The manual – prepared for public sector departments, employees and recipients of services – was developed by the Civil Service Bureau, in cooperation with the Institutional Performance and Policy Development Directorate in the Prime Ministry, the Institute of Public Administration, and the EU-funded SIGMA project.

Virtual training for Human Resources, Administration, Communications and Performance Development personnel will start today, Thursday 14 May.

A joint initiative of the OECD and the European Union and fully-funded by the EU, SIGMA has been supporting the Jordanian Public Administration since 2008.
