Jamaica Government Human Capital Management System powered by Quidgest technology

Quidgest and the Government of Jamaica signed a contract for implementing a Human Capital Management Enterprise System (HCMES) Software across all Jamaica Public Sector, a project led by the Ministry of Finance and The Public Service. This solution, jointly promoted by Quidgest and the local partner UHY Dawgen, is powered by Genio, one of the most advanced technology for Public Administration agile software development.

Quidgest and UHY Dawgen Chartered Accountants established a partnership in 2014. Since then, UHY Dawgen has been working with Quidgest to expand the projects in the Caribbean market.

By the end of 2015, the contract between the Government of Jamaica (GoJ) and Quidgest was signed. The aim of the current project is to implement an integrated system to manage the GoJ’s Human Capital. Focused on shared services with an integrated and unified vision, HCMES Software includes functionalities for both Human Resources (HR) Management and Payroll.

As well as other international projects developed by Quidgest, this project is funded by Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) under the Public Sector Efficiency Program of the country.

Quidgest’s experience in similar projects, such as SIGRHARA – the Azores Government HRIS, and Genio, the platform for rapid application development of complex information systems, were crucial for choosing its system.

“It´s with great expectation that we embrace this project. There are significant challenges such as the current processes or the local legislation, for example the salaries can be processed fortnightly, we are confident that we have everything to succeed, in particular, thanks to our HR team, our local partner, and all the enthusiastic people from the Government we have worked with”, says Hugo Miguel Ribeiro, Quidgest VP North America and Caribbean, who is also the Project Manager.

The project is divided in several phases, the initial 2 with an estimated length of 2 years, to cover all HR processes for 26,925  employees and the next 3 phases to cover the remaining 120.000 Jamaican public sector employees. The HCMES Software will then be continuously adjusted to the local continuous legislations changes and reality.

 

Quidgest certified as “Bicycle Friendly Company”

The “Bicycle Friendly Company” seal already attributed to Quidgest since 2013 was renovated for 2016. This initiative, organized by MUBi – Association for Urban Mobility in Bicycle, is based upon the defense that creating cyclability conditions is everyone’s responsibility.

Thereby, MUBi in partnership with Lisbon Municipal Council and EMEL aims to recognize and distinguish institutions that offer cyclability conditions in their quarters to its employees, clients or visitors.

To be a certified entity by MUBi is necessary to meet conditions previously established by the association. However, they allow the companies to develop new actions afterward.

The seal has annual validity and it can be required on the association website.
