Merit The ongoing effort to dispel so-called good practice recruitment myths continued, particularly through the development of the Merit Selection Good Practice Guidelines. All of the activities are aimed at having an NTPS that is contemporary in the way it operates for the good of the NT community, and remains an attractive employer. Like all areas of the NTPS, OCPEs workload in 2008-09 has been heavy and challenging but rewarding and satisfying at the same time. The commitment of the OCPE staff is second to none and the significant advances we have made in 2008-09 are all down to them. A separate State of the Service Report for 2008-09 has been prepared which provides details of the state of human resource management in the NTPS, and a statistical analysis of state of the service indicators.
