Basseterre-St. Kitts-While making his presentation at the annual consultation on the economy hosted by the Federal government of St. Kitts and Nevis, on Wednesday 28th September, Premier of Nevis, Hon. Vance Amory, spoke to the issue of tardiness within the civil service.
He spoke of some persons who make it a habit to be late to work and early to leave for the day and some who even while at work, utilize their computers for other things than the work they are paid to do, including the playing of games.
Premier Amory was quite clear that such attitudes within the Civil Service must come to an abrupt end and hinted to the pay based on performance proposal which was expected to be elaborated on by Prime Minister, Hon. Timothy Harris.
Premier Amory indicated that a much higher level of professionalism must be brought to bear to the delivery of services provided by government workers and assured that measures will be put in place to ensure that this becomes a reality.
