Oct 12, 2021 – Islamabad: Dr. Sania Nishtar chaired the 53rd meeting of the BISP board. The board approved ‘Bell Curve Concept’ for the performance management of employees. The board also approved the national scaleup of Ehsaas Nashonuma and new organogram of BISP to improve organization’s effectiveness. The existing Performance Management System (PMS) at BISP is similar to the methodology used by Government of Pakistan (the ACR/PER system). “Since the current PMS is not compatible with the modern PMS being used by progressive organizations, the board has approved new PMS Principles based on ‘Bell Curve Concept’, essential to leverage optimum performance from employees. The newly approved concept will be implemented by July 2022”, said Dr. Sania. The new PMS will access the relative performance of employee based on goal setting sheets and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) developed for benchmark positions.
