Year: 2004
In Resolution A/RES/57/305, the General Assembly requested the Office of Internal Oversight Services to study the impact of the mandated human resources reforms and report to the 59th session. To assist in the completion of this report, the Capstone team, with the support of the Internal Management Consulting Services (IMCS) staff, will provide benchmarks from international organizations in the public and private sectors on human resources policy and practice. The Capstone team is focusing on three human resource areas, which include mobility, staff selection, and strategic planning. Based on a survey sent to more than 50 international organizations, the Capstone team will benchmark international human resources best practices and provide recommendations on mobility, staff selection, and strategic planning.
