By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA
MONROVIA, July 12 (LINA) – Bong County Senator Jewel Taylor has called on workplace bosses to “give their personnel a pat on the back” if they perform well on the job as motivation for increased productivity.
“Correct them when they go wrong, but not in a harsh manner,” Taylor added in a speech delivered on her behalf during the graduation ceremony in the University of Liberia auditorium recently of more than 230 participants from an 8-week training in various disciplines at the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA).
She indicated in the speech read by her Administrative Assistant, Titus Charley, that creating favorable work environment enhances quality and effectiveness of service delivery.
“Patting the back of personnel is one of such characteristics that would motivate and encourage public servants to produce good results on the job,” she emphasized.
Speaking on the topic “Building capacity for effective public service delivery,” Senator Taylor pointed out that for public servants to effectively deliver on their responsibilities requires the provision of needed logistics.
She lauded LIPA for “a job well-done” over the years, stressing the need for the institute to always conduct training programs that will enable employees to have first-hand approach on the job and allow them to be partakers rather than mere observers.
She then cautioned the graduates to exhibit the knowledge acquired, adding: “Your boss will be happy and even want you to excel; so do well, perform well and say to yourself, my country needs me most, I must deliver to make it a better place to live.”
