The Legislative Council Committee on Civil Servants and Subsidized Organizations Staff Affairs Committee held a meeting today (16th). At the meeting, many members were concerned about the lack of publicity of the achievements of civil servants by the authorities. , to attract the attention of the public, while the "penetration rate" of the rest of the civil servants in the society is insufficient, and it is believed that "the publicity among (different) civil servants is uneven."
Guo Weiqiang from the Federation of Trade Unions suggested that the authorities set up a mobile app for civil servants, and push videos of outstanding civil servants in the app, so that the work of outstanding civil servants can be widely disseminated, so as to establish a good culture in the bureau.
Some Members are concerned that the quality of government contract employees and civil servants is uneven, which may affect the government's long-term work planning.
Huang Guo said that the current society's requirements for civil servants have changed. In the past, it was only required to "maintain political neutrality and do a good job" to "love the country, love Hong Kong, and establish a heart to serve the public."
He believes that in order to cultivate the concept of "being Hong Kong (people) and housing enterprises" in civil servants, it is necessary to strengthen the public's understanding of civil servants.
However, he believes that there is a gap between the authorities' publicity for different departments: "Pioneering anti-corruption, the police, and customs are very attractive, and they are broadcast on mainstream TV. On the contrary, there are relatively few other civil servant departments, and the penetration rate is relatively low."
Huang Guo asked the Civil Service Bureau to follow the example of the Police Public Relations Division to set up relevant departments to help tell the story of outstanding civil servants externally, and cultivate a new working culture for civil servants internally.
The Secretary for the Civil Service, Yang Ho Pui-yin, agrees that the authorities have not done enough publicity for civil servants in the past: "The citizens have a high level of awareness of the disciplined forces, because the disciplined forces are action-oriented, and the uniformed forces have a clear image. Many stories are told to make the citizens fascinating and attract the audience to watch. But everyone can imagine clerical work, which is done on the computer every day. It is very difficult to use TV series and attractive methods to promote, and some types of work have inherent limitations.” Yang He Beiyin later said that she would consider Guo Weiqiang’s suggestion and set up Civil servant mobile phone applications to promote the deeds of civil servants, so that the public can deepen their understanding of various departments.
The election committee member So Chang-wing mentioned that some non-civil service contract employees resolutely gave up their original jobs in order to increase their job competitiveness, joined the government, and worked as contract employees for one year.
He asked the authorities how to ensure the stability of the quality of non-civil service contract employees and civil servants, and whether it would be difficult to cooperate with the government's future work plan.
Yang Hebei emphasized that most non-civil service contract employees are seasonal jobs: "It may be a one-time allocation, and it will be completed in three or four years. It is not suitable for permanent positions; or the working hours are relatively short, so they cannot be replaced by civil service positions. "She pointed out that not all civil service jobs can be completed by contract employees, and that in the future, recruitment will be done well to balance the number of positions between the two to ensure that government operations will not be affected.
