CS best worker of year to be revealed tonight

| 28/08/2013

(CNS): The deputy governor, who is still acting as governor, will be hosting a special event this evening at Government House where he will unveil the Civil Service Employee of the Year Award. For the past year, following the creation of the employee of the month initiative by Franz Manderson, a public servant has been singled out for going above and beyond the call of duty to be handed the award. The programme has recognized excellence in the civil service each month and the employee of the year will be chosen from among the twelve monthly award winners so far.

The presentation will take place this evening and CNS will post the details of the winner on receipt of the details from government officials.

    Reading these comments by the negative civil servant haters makes me sick and shame to be a reader and poster on this site. How can you behave like this- then expect the civil servants to care for you each day and yes I mean care for you.  they care for you when you are sick, deliver your work pemit for you and your employees, pick up your trash, watch over you at night and drive you to prison when you are drunk and stupid. But yet they are all incompetent. Wow- lets see what the employees in the private sector have to offer besides huge salaries, bonuses and homes overseas-  stealing my money at the bank, ripping me off every chance they can, never returning phone calls or emails- overcharging me for poor service and serving me the wrong meal and of course bad mouthing the country that makes them ritch- wow!!! But wait they are all model employees- yeah right. Thank you civil servants for all that you do. One of these days the posters on CNS will wake and say wow thank you.

      Watch over us at night?? I think you're getting your institutions confused. The CS do only what we pay them to do, and they do that slowly, poorly and with a lot of attitude.

    And the winner, with only 10 sick days in the last month, who consistently arrived for work by 11amand limited her lunch breaks to 3 hours and never went home before 3pm, who selflessly only used her gasboy card for her own car, her mum's car, her baby daddy's car and her cousin's jet skis and whose family only cost CINICO $100,000 last month, is………actually there is no one that dedicated so I'll just give it to someone I like.

    Franz, with all due respect to your 'efforts' to boost staff morale, are you planning on running for political office next? This does same to be the way to win over voters, and I am a keen political observer here in your district of WB, but oh so tired of students and workers who just have perfect attendance getting certificates and a paycheck, respectively.


    By the way, there is now graduation criteria, so no more seat warming to graduate, so how about applying that to the workers in CIG too? Tired of people bragging about being a civil servant for years, yet never took furthwer studies on their own initiative, never implemented changes, stood up for anything ethical, just sat there, did minimum, kissed right a*s and kept their jobs. We need a small efficient CIG, costing too much to employ locals and expats, rejected by their own governments.

    I agree with previous comment @6:27, …….how about terminating service of those persons who are sitting there being unproductive and thereby setting a poor example to others. i.e. use some alternatives means of motivation since the security of tenure is not helping and downsize the CIG instead.

    **smh*** no wonder so many civil servants are loving Franz, more time spent on how to create morale, retreats and award ceremonies!!!!!!! auditor please check on this again! But guess acting Gov Manderson did need to have a likkle function before the woman steps in

    What is this costing?  What About firing the worst employee of the month?  Would pay to see that one.

      A "firing of the week" on TV would be very popular and would surely improve productivity.  I like this idea, especially if the reasons for the firing were set out in humliating detail.

    "And the award for showing up to work and getting paid for doing what you are paid to do, goes to….."

      Replying to 19:19    This award actually goes to the Civil Servant that went on and above what is expected of them, we are all so quick to complain but so slow to say Thankyou or Welcome no wonder moral is low!  The person that actually won it was well deserving! No I am not a Civil Servant

        The issue 10.35, is that everyone I know, Cayman colleages and Expat, have all had dealings at some point with CS and none are impressed by a lazy and "jobsworth" approach to their clients, the public….even heard one colleague yesterday who clearly was being given the run around by the CS in a blatant  (although not directly asked) attempt to extract a bribe for doing his job. The image of CS is dreadful and it will not be cleaend until the service itself has been cleaned up, made smaller and more efficient.

    Just hope it could be Reselda Ebanks. You can always call her office and get an answer in such a courteous and professional manner. If she is not there you can leave a message and you can bet that she is going to get back to you. Keep it up Reselda.

      Isn't that the way it is supposed – in any office.  Special awards for just doing the job you are being paid to do…..?

      So she deserves an award for answering her phone and returning calls? There lies the problem if this is thought of as award winning. Shaking my head in disbelief!!

      Decisions, decisions!!!! This must have been a very hard choice to make with the hundreds of dedicated, reliable, honest, trust-worthy, knowledgeable, never sick, "HARD-WORKING" and always on time CS workers they have. How did they choose just one???

    • SSM345 says:

      I wish I got an award everytime I answered the phone or returned a missed call at work, my trophy cabinet would be bursting at it's seams.

      Sums it up doesn't it?  Someone who answers their phone professional is held up as a model civil servant.

        Not just answering the phone buit she trys to help anyone that she comes in contact with that needs assistance. Just let her be your role model and stop being jealous over good comments about this woman. Just take a page out of her book. Whenever you cant reach certain people you can call her and she never stop trying until she gets a hold of the person and relates the message.

      Yup, that's certainly evidence of going above and beyond the call of duty… not!  Its only evidence that someone is doing what they are paid to do.  If your point is others do not do this, then complain.
