CBI ties up with IIM-B, appraisals to go corporate
Performance appraisals in the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will soon be carried out along the lines of the corporate sector and incentives for commendable work will be part of the new mantra for managing the agency’s human resources.
The CBI is set to measure the performance of its investigators on the basis of the efforts they put into solving a particular case along with the complexity of the probe, rather than going by just the number of cases cracked.
The CBI on Friday signed a memorandum of understanding with the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, to identify the priority areas for optimum use of its human resources and then develop customised modules for better use of its workforce and keeping it in tune with fast-changing technologies.
“Suppose one case is cracked by an investigator in three months and another is solved by 20 investigators in six months, should we still compare them as one unit of work? This is one the issues we will be looking at,” said CBI joint director RS Bhatti after the MoU was signed.
CBI officials associated with the initiative said that with the growing realisation that the world has changed, with concepts such as new knowledge, transparency and globalisation gaining currency, the agency wants to adopt a new approach to manage its human resources that are the most critical factor in cracking tough cases.
