Cpo and Marget Kistow

Easter is a special time of year and represents the joyful end to the Lenten season of fasting and penitence. There is also an incredible opportunity to invite people into the heart of generosity. An ethos Chief Personnel Officer, Commander Dr. Daryl has engendered among the Department’s staff with the adoption of the Margaret Kistow Children’s Home and the implementation of multiple initiatives that have now become annual undertakings, to bring cheer to the Children at the home and satisfy a small section of their basic needs.


Cpo and Ayodk

In keeping with the vision of our Chief Personnel, Dr. Daryl Dindial, the Department’s staff were exposed to “Self-Development Training Sessions” on September 2nd, 7th, 8th and 9th 2022 entitled “Finding Purpose”.  On September 2nd, the first session was facilitated by, Behaviour Change Consultant, Mr. Yohance Ayodike of IODK Consultancy who delivered a participative mixture of lectures and creative training activities covering Organizational Development, Organizational Transformation and Organizational Energy.


Past and Present CPO

Former Chief Personnel Officer Dr. Roland G. Baptiste paid a courtesy visit to sitting Chief Personnel Officer, Commander Dr. Daryl Dindial at the Offices of the Personnel Department on September 2nd, 2022. Presumably, both Dr. Dindial and Dr. Baptiste had a lot to chat about due to similar experiences as CPOs, mainly having to operate in economic climates less than ideal, and navigate the course in determining and advising on pay and other terms and conditions of the Public Service.

Dr. Baptiste served as the Chief Personnel Officer from 1987 to 1992.  Both Dr. Dindial and Dr. Baptiste welcomed to opportunity to meet and discuss the future of the Department.



The children of the Margaret Kistow Children’s Home were afforded a surprise treat initiated and sponsored by the Chief Personnel Officer, Commander Dr. Daryl Dindial. The much anticipated and fun-filled event took place on Friday 8 July, 2022 on the grounds of the home located in Malabar Gardens Arima, and catered to a group of enthusiastic youths ranging in ages two (2) to seventeen (17) years old. Although The Chief Personnel Officer was unable to attend the event, the dynamic team consisting of Malika McLeish of the Industrial and Labour Relations (ILR) Unit, the Department’s Special Events Committee (S.E.C) member, Geline Mejias of the Job Evaluation Project Office (JEPO) and the Communications and Events Coordination team delivered what can be considered a successful and well-received initiative, judging by the response and participation of the children.
