• Enable more effective and efficient staff mobility within UNDP;
• Ensure that staff moves are managed strategically and that each established position is continuously filled;
• Create opportunities for career development and continuous learning, as part of an integrated employee experience, through multi-directional moves driven both by business needs and staff aspirations;
• Strengthen UNDP’s ability to attract and retain a diverse and dynamic world-class global workforce that will effectively meet the Organization’s current and future operational needs.
UNDP’s new mobility policy provides a clear framework for how mobility is implemented and managed in UNDP. It applies to all International Professional (IP) staff members holding a UNDP Letter of Appointment and hired on Fixed-Term Appointments (FTA) and Permanent Appointments (PA). The policy defines mobility as periodic moves of staff to new or re-classified positions within the same or different occupational group/functional area, laterally or to a different level, within the same or different duty station. The policy reintroduces a mobility requirement for most of IP positions as well as a duration of assignment (tour of duty) element. It further creates the categories of geographical, functional and inter-agency mobility.
The policy establishes that most of IP positions are mobile, and classifies these as either Rotational or Non-rotational.
The policy also outlines arrangements for:
• Moves of staff in rotational positions, which are proposed to be managed through a corporate centrally managed Annual Rotation Exercise (ARE). There will be two types of AREs – for positions sourced from the Candidate Pools and for all other rotational positions; and
• Moves of staff in non-rotational positions, which are proposed to be managed mainly through a regular recruitment process.
The policy will take effect on 1 January 2021 and will be implemented in phases, including an initial designation of rotational positions, planning of upcoming AREs and other activities in accordance with the implementation plan currently designed by OHR/BMS.
