Comments Print Mail Large Medium SmallAlthough the public has criticized the overstaffing issue in Chinas civil service, many young civil servants are opposed to such view lately online. They believed that the main reason of redundancy is the inequality in the distribution of work allocation, says an article in Excerpts:
The uneven distribution of work means that newcomers to the civil service usually take on a large proportion of the job assignments, while their senior colleagues leisurely do less work. Thats why the public feels the civil service is inefficient.
To some extent, the rapidly growing number of civil servants in China explains why this is the case. At the end of 2012, the total number of civil servants nationwide was 7 million, having continuously increased since 2008. But such a large civil service is inefficient compared to many foreign administrations, and there is actually superfluous staff.But more importantly, the most fundamental reason for the lack of efficiency and the lack of enthusiasm for work is the limited opportunities for promotion available. Although civil servants should care more about carrying out their duties for the public good, there is no denying people wish to realize personal goals in their career. In reality, many officials remain in one position for more than 10 years.Because such an “invisible ceiling” exists, it is impossible for lowly civil servants to arouse much enthusiasm for their daily work. Therefore, we cannot just blame them for having a poor work ethic. Only by giving them fair promotion opportunities and establishing a scientific employment mechanism, can civil servants enthusiasm and motivation be rekindled, and their efficiency increased.8.03KRelated StoriesCivil service not what its made out to beCivil servants should be model citizensFrom civil servant to top business guruNearly 1 mln sit national civil servant examPhotoRetail giant checks outTop 10 Chinese car maker movesEarth hour around the worldWorlds eight green stadiumsHighlights of the Baselworld 2014View from on highChina Economy By NumbersChina Economy by Numbers – Dec China Economy by Numbers – Nov NewsmakerFew textbook answers from Nobel prize winner Things you didnt know about Max BaucusMost ViewedTodays Top NewsNHTSA says finds no defect trend in Tesla Model S sedansWTO rare earth ruling is unfairAmway says 2014 China sales may grow 8%President Xi in Europe: Forging deals, boosting businessCNOOC releases 2013 sustainability reportLocal production by Chery Jaguar Land Rover this yearCar lovers test their need for speed in BMW Mission 3China stocks close mixed MondayHot TopicsTaxi booking appInternet finance12306.cnHousing priceWeChat4GChina MobileIPOs resumptionEditors PicksTop 10 Chinese car maker moves Worry-free financing plans aid car owners What a phone can do via lens 9 mysterious plane disappearances SpecialsGlobal business leaders weigh in on reformsBillionaires speak out on reform rolesInternet finance is in, but is banking out?…Media : |State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs|QQ International|Peopleforum||Partners : |State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs|QQ International|Peopleforum||Portals : |||Sina|Sohu|Tom|Tencent|NetEase|Hexun|Organizations : |China US Focus|FrenCham|CPAFFC|CPIFA||eBeijing|AmCham|SwissCham BJ|…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
