- 22 September, 2017:
A new batch of seventy recruits in the grade of Management Support Officer (MSO) joined the Civil Service yesterday. In this context, an official function was held in the presence of the Minister of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms, Mr Eddy Boissézon, in the Lunch Room of the National Assembly, Port Louis.
On this occasion, the Minister underlined that the new recruits are joining the public service at the most opportune time as there is currently a lack of manpower in the civil service both at the administrative and operational levels which is affecting quality service. The full participation and support of the new recruits will be required to sustain competitiveness in the public sector and in the face of challenges that will span across the civil service, he added.
According to Minister Boissézon, Government is leaving no stone unturned to invest in human capital and improve performance in the public sector. This intake will, ensure an optimum utilisation of human resources so as to provide efficient services to the public, he said.
The Minister also listed out the role and responsibilities of the MSOs vis-à-vis the Government and the public while highlighting the high and increasing expectations of the public. On this score, he appealed to the recruits to demonstrate zeal and dedication in service delivery and to perform their duties with diligence, honesty and integrity while respecting the rights of the public.
He stressed on the importance of providing continuous training to the recruits so as to help them provide a prompt service to meet the expectations of all stakeholders in an ethical and responsible manner.
Furthermore, an induction course was also organised by the Civil Service Ministry with the objective to enable the new recruits to acquire the right skills, notions and knowledge, while at the same empowering them to cope with the exigencies of the service. The induction will help them to be abreast of modern techniques of management and perform their duties in an efficient and effective manner.
