Gov’t Begins Study On Equitable Compensation Scheme

MONROVIA, October 24 (LINA) - The Executive Branch of Government has begun a study that would lead to a more uniformed and equitable compensation scheme among state-owned-enterprises (SoEs) and autonomous agencies.

According to an Executive Mansion release, at a meeting with heads of SoEs and autonomous agencies, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf called for “a more equitable compensation scheme which reflects the level of differentiation in size, function, responsibility and financial performance”.

Under this initiative and consistent with its salary reform strategy, government aims to narrow salary disparities across the public sector to attract and retain talents for efficient and effective service delivery, the release said.

During the meeting, President Sirleaf mandated the Civil Service Agency Director-General, Mr. George Werner, in his capacity as the lead person in government to drive public sector reforms, to work with all concerned to conduct the study that would lead to a compensation scheme and appropriate staffing levels among SoEs and autonomous agencies.

The heads of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission, Liberia Maritime Authority, Liberia Petroleum Refining Company, Liberia Telecommunication Authority, General Auditing Commission, Independent National Human Rights Commission, National Oil Company of Liberia, Governance Commission, among others, attended the meeting and thanked the Liberian President for the initiative which they noted was timely.
