IS THE SOUTH AFRICAN PUBLIC SERVICE READY TO EMBRACE GLOBALIZATION: RECOMMENDATIONS(2)

RECOMMENDATIONS(2) 

Recommendation 4 – Take Ownership of goods and service delivery

Ownership of public goods and service delivery should be pulled out of the bureaucracy into empowered communities. Communities have more commitments to their members than goods and service delivery have to the citizens. Public servants must take ownership of goods and service delivery which will result in effective and efficient service delivery.

Recommendation 5 – Competition should be mission and not rules driven

Competition should be injected into goods and service delivery to attain global status. Government should be mission-driven, and rules-driven organisation should be transformed. In other words, objectives must be set and attained timeously and bureaucracy should be reduced or eliminated to reach targets.

Recommendation 6 – Greater awareness of training budgets

The greater awareness of government to ensure that training budgets become integrated with the critical operations. This poses a totally new challenge to human resources managers and their teams. Instead of only perceiving their task of equipping employees with knowledge and skills in a classroom environment, human resources managers are compelled by the new emphasis to work much closer with operating managers at an international level.

Recommendation 7 – Development of managerial employees

Development should be aimed at employees serving in a managerial capacity or preparing them for managerial posts within an organisation. Managers must keep abreast of new developments in technological, economic, political, legislative and social fields as well as human resource management practices what should focus on developing people for tomorrow’s needs of the government. Development is a process whereby managers obtain the necessary skills, experience and is a continuous process to update managers in particular regarding technological, economic, political, legislative and other human resources practices to obviate becoming obsolescent.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
