People Information Programme (PiP)
What is PiP?
PiP is the database used by the Isle of Man Government for HR management and payroll functions, including personnel records and organisational structures. When changes are to be made to your organisational structure or your employee’s terms of employment, these will need to be reflected on PiP. To do this, you will need to access the Manager Self Service function within PiP.
Functions of PiP
Managers can use PiP to run select reports, for instance on an employee’s absence, however it is also used by employees to book annual leave, record sickness absences, apply for special leave and to notify of resignation.
For more information, the PiP Customer Support Team can be contacted on 685999 or by email at email@example.com.
Which OHR form to use
Prior to the launch of PiP, OHR required managers to complete a number of physical forms. Most of these forms are no longer in use as the required information is now entered directly, by the manager into PiP using Manager Self Service.

Fairness at work
The Fairness at Work Policy supports the Isle of Man Government’s commitment to promoting a working climate in which all members of staff are treated fairly and consistently and with dignity and respect.
The responsibility for creating a culture of Fairness at Work is shared by all and everyone has a role to play by:
- being proactive and intervening early when problems arise
- understanding and adhering to acceptable standards of conduct
- taking responsibility for their own behaviour
The policy also aims to promote management styles which are effective and fair and there is a large section of the policy dedicated to providing support and guidance for supervisors/managers.
How to have difficult conversations
As a supervisor/manager you may at some point have to have a difficult or challenging conversation with a member of staff. No one enjoys having these conversations but they shouldn’t be avoided as getting them right can help to improve levels of performance, attendance and employee engagement.
There are various tools and practical steps you can take to assist you with structuring these conversations and where possible, get the right outcome for you and your member of staff.
Examples of tools that Learning, Education and Development (LEaD) deliver through some of their training programmes are:
CEDAR is a tool that can be used to structure a difficult conversation that you need to have. Having a structure to follow gives you confidence in saying what you need to say.
CEDAR is broken down into 5 stages:
For further information, please see the CEDAR Model Guide
BEEF Feedback Model
This model focuses on effective ways of providing feedback to your member of staff using the following structure:
For further information, please see the BEEF Feedback Model Guide

Managing capability, disciplinary or grievance issues
Guidance and support
The aim of capability procedures is to bring about the improvement necessary in order for a member of staff to meet the required standards, by ensuring a fair, efficient, consistent and constructive approach to dealing with capability issues such as performance or attendance, with clear outcomes at all stages.
The aim of disciplinary procedures is to ensure that the standards of conduct expected of the member of staff are observed by providing a method of dealing with alleged breaches and deficiencies in a manner which is consistent and fair.
All members of staff should have access to a fair and effective procedure for the resolution of grievances. The aim of the grievance procedures is to settle any grievance as near to its point of origin as possible and without unreasonable delay.
The Learning Education and Development Division of the Office of Human Resources offer training courses in High Performance Essentials: People and High Performance Essentials: Process.
It is important that members of staff know what standards of conduct are expected of them, and that they are made aware of any relevant policies or procedures by their supervisor/manager.
Procedures are included within the member of staff's terms and conditions of service.
Advice and direct assistance with these procedures is available from your Business partner or HR advisor.
Policies and Procedures can also be accessed by employees on the Policies, Procedures, Codes, Guidance and Forms page of the OHR Website.
What to do when staff member is sick
The Isle of Man Government is committed to establishing a culture that supports a safe, healthy and productive workforce. As a supervisor / manager, your role is key to the effective management of sickness absence.
It is vital that absence is continuously monitored not only for the safety and wellbeing of our staff but also due to its high cost to the organisation. To assist in monitoring of absence, all Government departments receive absence reports on a monthly basis and termly for the Department of Education and Children.
The Management of Sickness Absence Policy and Guidance provides robust arrangements for the management of attendance which are fair, equal and consistently applied across the Public Service.
Who does the policy apply to?
The policy applies to all staff employed by the Isle of Man Government, whether full-time, part-time or limited term, with the exception of bank, relief and supply staff.
Your responsibilities as a supervisor/manager
It is the responsibility of supervisors/managers to monitor the attendance of their staff and to effectively deal with any absence issues in accordance with the Managing Sickness Absence Policy and Guidance.
The HR Essentials Managing Sickness Absence course is run by Learning Education and Development and can be booked via eLearn Vannin. It aims to give an understanding of the Managing Sickness Absence Policy and to explain the procedures and good practice which should be adopted to ensure the effectiveness of this policy.
What to do when your staff member reports sick
The HR Website provides an easy to follow guide to the Sickness Absence Procedures and outlines the responsibilities of both employees and managers in the event that a staff member is absent from work due to sickness.
The Sick Pay provisions are determined by the staff member’s employment group terms and conditions.
When your staff member returns to work
All members of staff should have a return to work meeting with the supervisor/manager on their return to work. This is a crucial part in managing sickness absence, confirms they are fit to be at work and helps to support their wellbeing.
You can contact your HR Advisory Team or the Occupational Health Service in confidence.
Occupational Health Service
Occupational Health is a confidential, impartial, medical advisory service. Their role is to advise about the health of employees in order to help supervisors/managers prevent or reduce work related health problems and manage the impact of health problems at work.
Staff Welfare Service
Staff Welfare offers information, help, support and counselling on a wide range of issues which can affect attendance at work. Staff can self-refer to this service.
Annual leave and special leave
The number of days of annual leave a member of staff is entitled to is set out in their Statement of Written Particulars and Terms and Conditions.
It is a supervisor/manager’s responsibility to ensure that annual leave records are kept up to date.
Annual leave entitlements for different terms and conditions:
For Department of Education and Children staff employed on a term time only basis, annual leave is not permitted during term time. On this basis, annual leave entitlement is rolled up and paid within the member of staff’s monthly salary.
For any terms and conditions not listed above, such as Bus Vannin or HMD please contact the relevant HR advisory team who will be able to provide further information.
Annual leave for part-time staff
Part time staff are entitled to the same allowances proportionate to their working pattern as full time staff.
Full time annual leave allowance x part time member of staff’s FTE* = annual leave allowance for part time member of staff
25 x 0.60 = 15 days annual leave
*FTE = number of part time hours per week / full time weekly hours of post
Annual leave carryover
Check your staff member's relevant terms and conditions to find out how much leave they can carry forward.
Staff commencing employment after the start of an annual leave year
A member of staff who commences employment part way through a leave year will be eligible for a proportionate amount of annual leave for the remaining part of the leave year.
A member of staff with an allocation of 21 days per annum who commences employment on 1st October but with the annual leave year commencing on 1 April.
Annual leave allowance / weeks in year x number of weeks worked = member of staffs annual leave allowance.
21 / 52.2 x 26 = 10.5 days annual leave (proportionate allowances for days are always round up to the nearest half hour),
Staff leaving employment part way through an annual leave year
A member of staff who leaves employment part way through a leave year will be eligible for a proportionate amount of annual leave for the leave year whilst employed.
A member of staff with an allowance of 24 days per annum leaves employment on the 31 December (no of completed weeks service in relevant leave year up to 31 December = 39 weeks).
Annual leave allowance / weeks in year x number of weeks worked = pro rata leave allowance*
24 / 52.2 x 39 = 17.93 rounded up to nearest half hour = 18 days annual leave
*Once this has been calculated remember to add any leave carried over from the previous leave year and/or deduct any leave already taken by the member of staff, in the current leave year
If a member of staff has exceeded their annual leave allowance prior to leaving they may be required to refund from their salary an amount equivalent to the number of days overtaken.
If a member of staff has any annual leave outstanding before they leave wherever possible this should be taken prior to them leaving.
The Isle of Man Government attaches considerable importance to a clear policy for the consideration and approval of special leave for:
- domestic, personal and family matters
- civic and public duties
- trade union duties
The objective is to provide a policy which provides appropriate time off for these purposes whilst maintaining a high level of service to the public. In particular it wishes to help employees balance the demands of work with the demands of domestic responsibilities at times of urgent and unforeseen need by the provision of special leave, paid or unpaid according to circumstances
Full details can be found in the member of staff’s terms and conditions.
All applications must be made using the Employee Self-Service function of PiP, unless a Department has other specific arrangements in place.
Calculating and adjusting bank holiday entitlements for part time employees
Step 1: The first step is to work out what your part time team members “per day” bank holiday entitlement is. This calculation is based on the number of part time hours worked per week divided by the number of days in the working week.
For example, if your team member works 22.5 hours per week with terms and conditions that have a standard working week of 5 days you would calculate their “per day” entitlement as follows:
22.5 hours divided by 5 = 4.5 hours per day entitlement.
So for this example this person will have a 4.5 hours per bank holiday entitlement.
Step 2: To understand whether any credit/debit is due to that team member for each bank holiday taken, the next step is to consider which days and hours the person works.
- If the person works an equal amount of hours across every day of the standard working week for their terms and conditions, then their working hours should match the per day total credit therefore no adjustment is required.
- If the person was not due to work on the bank holiday then they are entitled to their full bank holiday entitlement for that day and a credit will need to be applied.
For example, based on the 22.5 hours above, their bank holiday entitlement per day is 4.5 hours and a credit totalling this should be applied.
- If the per day bank holiday entitlement is more hours than the person would have worked that day, then they have not received their full bank holiday entitlement for that day and a credit will need to be applied for the difference.
For example, based on the 22.5 hours above, their bank holiday entitlement per day is 4.5 hours but if the person would only have worked 3 hours that day, then they are entitled to a credit of 1.5 hours to receive their full bank holiday entitlement.
- If the per day bank holiday entitlement is fewer hours than the person would have worked that day, then the employee has exceeded their bank holiday entitlement for that day and a debit will need to be applied for the difference.
For example, based on the 22.5 hours above, their bank holiday entitlement per day is 4.5 hours but if that person would have worked 6 hours that day, then a debit of 1.5 hours should be applied to correct this.
Where bank holidays are separated from annual leave schemes (PSC terms and conditions only), credits and debits for bank holidays can be applied by the manager to leave, flexi or TOIL balances based on Departmental rules/operational preferences.
Where bank holidays are rolled up into an annual leave scheme entitlement, the credit or debit should be applied by the manager against the annual leave balance.
Adoption, maternity and paternity
Our guidance on Adoption, Maternity and Paternity Leave provides helpful information regarding staff entitlements and your obligations in relation to pregnancy, maternity and adoption.
This handbook refers to PSC Civil Service, Manual and Craft and MPTC but does not affect your terms and conditions of employment which take precedence.
If you plan on recruiting to cover for maternity or adoption leave, please refer to the Jobtrain User Guide or contact the Employment Services Team.
Keep in Touch Days are a valuable way for members of staff to maintain contact with their teams whilst on maternity or adoption leave and can facilitate a smoother return to work.

Performance appraisal is a valuable process which provides a framework to support ongoing, effective performance management.
The most important aspect of an appraisal scheme are the scheduled meetings between the manager and member of staff to enable constructive conversations around performance, setting key objectives and exploration of development opportunities that may be needed in order to achieve objectives or desired as personal workplace development or career aspirations.
Currently the appraisal process used in your area will be dependent on the terms and conditions of your members of staff and some staff groups do not have a formal appraisal procedure at present.
A new, simplified appraisal scheme is currently being developed which is intended to be an adaptable and practical scheme which can be tailored to suit specific employee group’s needs. Once in place, the new scheme will not only replace the PSC Civil Service PDR scheme, but will be available for other staff groups who currently do not have an appraisal scheme in place.
If you have any questions regarding performance appraisal, please contact your HR Advisory Team.
What to do when your staff member leaves
People leave the organisation for all kinds of reasons, whether through retirement, taking a break from work or to move on to pastures new. A good leaving experience can have a significant impact on the leaver’s impressions of their time with the organisation.
We want all of our employees to feel valued, trusted and respected at all stages of their employment, including when they leave the organisation. As a manager, you are key to the success of this.
Some reasons for leaving need to be dealt with particularly sensitively, such as ill health retirement, redundancy or dismissal. In these cases, you will have the support of your OHR Business Partner team. Follow this link for more information about the Business Partner team and for contact details.
Employees now enter their resignation through PiP although some may still let you know verbally or by letter initially.
PiP will let you know that your leaver has handed in their notice, but nothing further will happen until you have confirmed your leaver’s last day of employment on the system, so make sure you talk to your leaver to agree this date. Information regarding notice periods.
Once agreed, you will update PiP which will trigger an automatic email to them confirming the date and providing them with information they will need when leaving the organisation, including outstanding annual leave, the return of Government property and pensions information. You will also receive a confirmation email which includes a handy manager's 'to do' list.
If you are not yet using PiP, follow this process for resignations.
OHR will close down your leaver’s Jobtrain, PiP accounts and any work permits or visas will also be cancelled.
What else to consider when someone is leaving
Letting people know
Bear in mind that the leaver may want to tell close colleagues personally before letting others know.
Once close colleagues know, you might consider an email for the wider division or department and stakeholders so that everyone is aware. Avoid putting any inappropriate or personal information in the announcement, for example, excessive detail about why they are leaving.
Always take into account the morale of the team and the potential impact of the announcement when deciding on the best method of communication. When a team member leaves, it can be an unsettling time for their colleagues, especially their direct team. It is a good idea to make yourself or an appropriate manager available to answer any questions the team may have and provide assurances for any concerns that are brought up.
The perception of the colleagues who are remaining is really important. Seeing how a colleague is treated after giving their notice will reflect on their own feelings of engagement. Team members will be reassured by a well-managed and personal approach to the employee leaving that supports the organisations values.
There are a number of benefits to a good handover, which include a smooth transition between the leaver and the new starter, meaning the new starter will settle in more easily and confidently. It also means much less disruption to the business whilst reducing the risk of valuable knowledge and experience being lost.
Think about when would be best to ask for the handover to be prepared considering their notice period and any leave being taken. The detail and length of a handover will vary depending on the complexity and seniority of the role, however, here are some general guidelines for what should be included:
- Description of key daily tasks and processes
- Relevant files and spreadsheets
- Projects/tasks deadlines and progress updates
- Identify any training/shadowing your leaver could provide to other staff to pass on specialist knowledge
- Key contacts; customers, clients, stakeholders and managers
- Any ongoing issues
- Details of relevant logins and passwords
- Location of keys or other resources
Remember to arrange enough time to go through the handover with your leaver.
If there will be a gap between the leaver’s end date and the new starter commencing, you will need to identify what work needs to be handed over to someone else.
An exit interview is an opportunity to gain valuable insight into the leaver’s employee experience as well as better understand their reasons for leaving.
One of the main purposes of the exit interview is to make the leaver feel valued and appreciated and to give them the opportunity to talk openly and frankly about their employee experience in a safe, neutral setting. The leaver should feel comfortable being able to express their views honestly and be confident that anything they say will be received positively and any concerns raised will be taken seriously. You may want to consider these questions when conducting the exit interview.
Exit interviews should offered consistently across your area for all leavers, regardless of role, grade or length of service.
The format of an exit interview can range from an informal 1-2-1 with a line manager, to a formal exit interview carried out by a neutral party, often an HR Business Partner or HR Adviser. Care and sensitivity should be applied when deciding which is most suitable for the individual. It really depends on the relationship between yourself and the leaver, or their direct line manager, as to how comfortable they will feel talking about their experience openly and honestly.
The best way to approach this is to offer the leaver the option of an exit interview and let them decide who they would like to talk to, if anyone.
What to do after the Exit Interview
Always check that the leaver is happy for you to share any feedback they have, giving reassurances that this will be handled sensitively and professionally if it is shared.
If the leaver is comfortable with this, sharing positive feedback with the team can help boost morale. It is also a good gauge of ‘what we’re doing well’, so that you can ensure that positive actions and behaviours are maintained.
There are times when feedback will be less positive. t is vitally important, in this situation, that you remain impartial and do not become defensive. Remember, the exit interview is intended as a safe place for honest and open conversations, including negative feedback. Again, providing the leaver has given their approval, this feedback may be shared with relevant management in order to address issues raised.
Do remember though, that the exit interview is not the place for raising existing issues that have already been dealt with, or serious complaints, which should be dealt with through the relevant policy and procedure.
What to do when your staff member retires
There is no compulsory retirement age. However there is flexibility under the Government Unified Scheme (GUS) to retire from age 55. Please contact the Public Sector Pensions Authority (PSPA) for further information and details of other pension schemes. Additional information and related policies can be found in the Resignation and Retirement section of the OHR website.
Is a member of your team due to retire? Remember, a good leaving experience can have a significant impact on the leaver’s impressions of their time with the organisation.
We want all of our employees to feel valued, trusted and respected at all stages of their employment, including when they leave the organisation.
As a manager, you are key to the success of this. Use the Manager’s Guide to Leavers to assist you to provide a ‘good exit’ when someone leaves your team. It includes handy checklists and ‘to do’ lists as well as tons of useful information and guidance.
If you are not yet using PiP, follow the process below for resignations:
Procedure for managers not using PiP
If your member of staff submits their retirement date in writing to you, please follow the leaving process from Step 3 (OHR5 form completion) onwards.
If an OHR5 form isn’t submitted by you to OHR:
- The OHR Employment Services Team (EST) will contact you if you have a member of staff who is due to reach contractual retirement age that coming quarter.
- EST will liaise with you and confirm the member of staff’s retirement in writing.
You may be able to request a retirement certificate for your member of staff if they have been in service for a number of years. Please check the Regulations Handbook/Department Policy for further information regarding long service.
Learning, Education and Development (LEaD) design and deliver learning, education and development services across the Isle of Man Government.
LEaD offers a retirement preparation course to all Isle of Man Government employees who are within two years of retirement.
Fill a job vacancy
We all want to ensure that we get the right person for the job and the Isle of Man Government Recruitment and Selection Policy is designed to ensure that, subject to the requirements of the Control of Employment legislation, the Government attracts and appoints the right people for vacant public sector posts:
- on the basis of fair and open competition
- on the basis of merit
- without discrimination
Vacancies arise in a number of different ways, for example, a member of your team leaves or you have received authorisation to create a new post. There is plenty of information, support and guidance available to help you with the recruitment process.
Find further detailed information in our Recruitment Policy and the Promoting Equal Opportunities Handbook.
Employees can also visit our Recruitment Intranet page where you can find lots of useful recruitment guidance documents and templates.
LEaD provide a one day Recruitment and Selection Workshop for anyone involved in the recruitment of staff which takes you through the full process, from a vacancy arising, compiling an effective job description and person specification and interviewing skills.
Over time, the role and responsibilities of a job may change so substantially that the weight of the job changes significantly (either an increase or decrease), to warrant a review of the grading of the post. There are job evaluation grading processes in place for different terms and conditions. For further information, contact your appropriate Business Partner Team.
Once you are ready to raise your vacancy on Jobtrain, you will need to ensure you have a position for the post on PiP. To fill an existing post you will need to obtain the PiP details by contacting the OHR Employment Services team.
