190 newly recruited Office Care Attendants / Senior Office Care Attendants join the Civil Service
A batch of 190 newly recruited Office Care Attendants / Senior Office Care Attendants joined the Civil Service today. The Minister of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms, and Minister of Environment, Sustainable Development and Disaster and Beach Management, welcomed them this morning at the Sir Harilal Vaghjee Hall, Government House, Port Louis.
In his address, the Minister pointed out that in line with the vision of the Ministry of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms, which is to have a professional public service which aims at instilling a culture of excellence, we want to give to our customers a quality service.
The way you are going to treat your customer will reflect on the organisation, he said, adding that you are being given the opportunity to serve and we expect you to dedicate all your time in the Civil Service to help those in need of your service.
Mr Wong advised the new recruits to be all the time aware that we exist as service provider because others need our service. “Those needing our services are, in fact, those who contribute towards our salary through direct and indirect taxes and, by virtue of their contribution, they become our main stakeholders” he pointed out.
The Minister recalled that since he took office in 2014, his Ministry has recruited 480 Management Support Officers in two batches, 54 Word Processing Operators, 12 Office Management Assistants have been promoted Office Management Executives, 292 Management Support Officers have been promoted Office Management Assistant, 10 Word Processing Operators promoted Senior Word Processing Operators, 38 Word Processing Operators have been promoted Confidential Secretaries and 8 Office Care Attendant/Senior Office Care Attendants have been promoted Head Office Care Attendants.
You will have to operate as effective team members working towards common objectives in line with targets set within programmes by government, stated Mr Wong. Those programmes are geared towards the generation of positive outcomes for citizens and this is in fact the role of Government, he underlined.
The Ministry of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms will shortly mount an induction programme where the recruits will learn about their roles and responsibilities and also benefit from courses on customer care, grooming and other relevant courses.
