Productivity Improvement System and Capacity Building Trainings for four Textile and Garment Factories

1. Background

Ethiopia has a large population, 96.96 million people, which is the 2nd largest in Africa. Over the past twelve years, the Country has sustained double-digit growth with significant improvements in food security and human development indicators and declining poverty. This has resulted in the decline of the incidence of poverty to a level of 29.6 per cent in 2011 (UNDAF 20116-2020).

The proportion of Ethiopias working-age population that engages in the labour market, is high. However, disparities do exist between young females and young males as young females have lower labour force participation rate (74.8 percent) than young males (81.0 percent). Youth unemployment is higher than the national employment rate, and it is mainly driven by female youth unemployment which is remarkably high (10.8 percent in 2015 compared to 5.5 percent for male youth). Given the size of the population, the development strategy of Ethiopia, Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II) 2016-2020, accords due emphasis to bring significant growth of the manufacturing industry so that it plays leading role in job creation, technology learning, structural shift in Ethiopia’s export and address trade imbalance

The textile and garment industry is one of the priority sector. It is generating a new dynamism in the development of the manufacturing sector attracting foreign direct investment and creating jobs. Just like the East Asian exporting countries Ethiopia is planning to use garment exports as a stepping-stone to move into light manufacturing, and eventually into more sophisticated exports. However, the sector faces challenges related to productivity, industrial relations, working conditions and human resource management. Specifically, most of the garment and textile factories are facing major challenges such as absenteeism, high staff turnover, low productivity, poor human resource management, low salary and poor working conditions. In many of the factories, production system requires significant changes in the organization of production, the management of data, and the participation of operators in factories to improve productivity.

In order to improve the sector performance, the ILO in collaboration with the tripartite partners and with financial support from SIDA and H&M developed a project that aims to contribute to the development of socially sustainable textile and garment industry in line with Ethiopia’s Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II). The project is working at national, regional and factory levels to improve industrial relations, working conditions and productivity of the sector.

One of the priority activities of the project is to support selected factories in improving productivity with full participation of the workforce. The importance of good management of the workforce (including workers, supervisor, and managers) to improve productivity cannot be overstated. In view of this, in the year 2017, the project plans to provide technical support to selected factories to improve productivity and competitiveness.

2. Objectives

The objectives of the assignment are;

  1. to identify challenges of productivity and competitiveness of the selected factories

  2. propose comprehensive strategy including training to improve the productivity and competitiveness of the factories

3. Specific Objectives

The External Collaborator Contract (EXCOL) or Consultancy firm will be responsible to support 4 selected factories to develop effective training package and adopt management system to improve productivity of workers through multi skilling operators.

Specifically the consultant will perform the following tasks.

Component 1: Conduct capacity assessment

· Conduct production management capacity assessment.

  • Conduct hourly operator capacity check, compare actual operator’s hourly production with their capacity

  • Assess line composition, available system and capacity for line balancing.

  • Identify available system for forecasting and planning production and human resource

  • Identify key bottlenecks for productivity and Evaluate the capacity of line managers, supervisors, industrial Engineers

  • Develop skill matrix for workers as well as staff

  • Identify available incentive to retain/reward skilled workers and multi-skilled workers.

  • Identify available training for supervisors and production managers to multi-skill them.

Component 2: Set Goal and Develop Road Map

· Based on the assessment, set worker skill development goal and develop implantation road map for each target factories.

· Skill improvement of workers in the lines will be measured by the productivity improvement of line and roadmap and goal should be set

Component 3: Conduct Training

· In line with the road map

  • conduct technical and soft skills training for operators, Middle and Junior level managers

  • Support factories to build a system to increase factories reliance on a multi-skilled workforce so that workers can assume greater responsibilities without compromising quality.

  • Train supervisors to build system and capacity to train and coach workers on a regular basis.

  • Update skill matrix of the factory and ensure worker and factory productivity improvement

  • Develop salary scale based on the workers skills level. Given high stuff turnover, requesting workers to assume greater responsibility without clear reward system will be difficult. In view of this, support factories to build reward system and improve worker loyalty by improving various conditions of employment in ways that address major problems of social compliance, industrial hygiene problems, and inferior conditions in working conditions and cafeterias… etc.

Component 4: Develop manual on productivity improvement

Based on the experience of the target factories, develop generic productivity improvement manual that can be used as a reference material for other factories.

Component 5: Build Local Capacity

While working with 4 factories, the EXCOL/consultancy firm will work closely with the selected local consultants (maximum 8) to train them on modern methods of manufacturing by internal and external resources to enhance their technical skills, organizing skills, and other areas of personal and professional development, to build their capacity. The local consultants are expected to build the capacity of the remaining factories.

4. Methodology

The EXCOL/consultancy firm is expected to report to a Quality Assurance Team (QAT) which is composed of the ILO Staff from CO Addis, H & M Addis Office, and a representative from CETU, EEF and MOLSA. The QAT will review the work of the consultant and ensure that it meets the expectations of the TOR.

The project will select universities to work together with the consultancy firm. The consultancy firm is expected to work very closely with the selected universities so that there will be knowledge transfer.

Technical Advisor, Health Insurance Analytics at CHAI

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI)

Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (“CHAI”) Vacancy in Ethiopia

Founded in 2002, by President William J. Clinton and Ira C. Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (“CHAI”) is a global health organization committed to saving lives, reducing the burden of disease and strengthening integrated health systems in the developing world.

 

CHAI Ethiopia is currently carrying out a wide range of programs to support the Ministry of Health in improving access to and increasing the quality of health services. As one of CHAI’s largest field offices with more than 150 staff, the Ethiopia office operates programs across hospital management; maternal, newborn and child health; HIV/AIDS; nutrition; vaccines; and health financing. The health financing program aims to transform how the health system is financed to substantially and sustainably increase access to services, beginning with essential services for those most in need.

 

Description:

The Government of Ethiopia is rolling out health insurance with the goal of reaching most of its population of 100 million people by 2020. The government is scaling up community-based health insurance for the informal sector, rolling out social health insurance for the formal sector, and harmonizing these two schemes under a national insurance scheme. This is one of the most ambitious health financing reforms on the continent, and if implemented well, has the potential to transform the health system and move the country closer to its goal of universal health coverage.

 

To successfully roll out this ambitious reform, the leadership of the newly formed Ethiopian Health Insurance Agency will need to overcome technical, operational and management challenges.  CHAI has been asked by senior leadership of the Ethiopian Health Insurance Agency to provide comprehensive support in testing innovations across pilot community based health insurance schemes,  to ensure health insurance can be sustainably brought to scale. This includes putting in place more efficient and effective management structures and information systems, new mechanisms pool or re-distribute resources across districts, new processes to better incentivize and hold providers accountable for efficient and high quality service delivery, and new policies and processes to enroll hard to reach populations.  Ethiopia will be a flagship program for CHAI’s work in health insurance, shaping our engagement in other countries.

 

Responsibilities

CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with strong technical capabilities and relevant experience to play a key role in our engagement in insurance in Ethiopia.  The Technical Advisor will provide technical and analytical input to a large CHAI team. The technical advisor, through robust analytical work, will help inform policy changes in how insurance is pooled and used to re-distribute resources and purchase services. This will include generating and analyzing evidence, and then working with the government and international experts to align on a benefits package, to define premium rates, to revise the pooling strategy, and to improve provider payment mechanisms and rates. Decisions will be piloted in a sub-set of regions, iterated on, and then brought to national scale.

 

This role offers the opportunity to be involved in the development of one of the largest national financing reforms on the continent, furthering expertise in health financing, and building experience in managing complex technical projects, working closely with the Government of Ethiopia. This role will report to the Senior Technical Advisor on the CHAI Ethiopia Health Financing Team.

 

Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Work with the Ethiopian Health Insurance Agency and CHAI staff in areas ranging from benefits design, to member management, to provider management, to management information systems, to pooling and finance.
  • Support the design and implementation of research. This includes taking ownership of technical work streams within priority areas, including a health service costing.
  • Support analyses such as financial sustainability modeling to inform and iterate on premiums, subsidies, benefits and contribution rates.
  • Present research and analyses to stakeholders, working with the Health Insurance Agency to use this information to develop evidence-based strategies, policies and procedures beginning in two pilot regions.
  • Pilot, roll-out and continuously improve core business processes in two pilot regions; for example through the development of tools or reporting templates and advising on improved data management and analysis techniques.
  • Support capacity building initiatives for a team of CHAI staff working across different directorates of the Health Insurance Agency, providing technical input and formal training and day to day support.
  • Work with international and local external experts
  • Other responsibilities as assigned by manager

 

Qualifications

CHAI works in a fast-paced, results-driven environment and this health insurance reform is a top priority for the government. This individual would need to have strong grasp of the theoretical foundations of health financing, combined with excellent applied quantitative skills, and relevant experience. Professional experience in health insurance, in either a developed or developing country context, is a significant advantage. The ability to generate technical output and translate findings into pragmatic policy recommendations will be central to the success of the technical advisor role. CHAI places great value on resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, flexibility, independence, energy, work ethic and humility.

 

Qualifications and advantages include the following:

  • Advanced degree (Masters or PhD) in a related field such as health economics, public health, financial management, public policy is strongly preferred; or Bachelor's degree minimum with exceptional experience
  • 7-10+ years of professional or experiential experience in demanding, results-oriented environments in either the public or private sector preferred; 5 years minimum professional experience
