Numerous Activities to Commemorate Public Service Day 2014
A number of activities have been planned leading up to this year’s observation of Public Service Day, on December 5th 2014.
The launch took place at the Fort Young Hotel on Wednesday June 25th 2014.
According to Chief Personnel Officer, Irma Edwards, Public Service Day is viewed as a time to highlight the commitment, dedication and resilience of public officers.
She noted, the role and impact of the Public Service is important to achieve targets of national development.
Edwards pointed out that without the diligence, innovation and creativity of public officers their goals to achieve social and economic progress would be derailed.
Meanwhile, Minister for Public Service, Honourable Alvin Bernard says, the employees of the public service must be commended for their contributions to the national development process.
Minister Bernard noted, the Government is aware of the challenges faced by public servants, hence the reason for non-salary incentives including home financing, health insurance and training.
He added, he is looking forward to the activities to observe the event.
Some of the activities include; a theme competition, community outreach activities, hikes on two segments of the Waitukubuli National Trail, a talent night, a church service and sporting activities.
Public Service Day will come to a close with an Awards and Recognition Ceremony on the evening of December 5, 2014.
