We have started the New Year – 2020 – and I hope it will be a happy one for all.
Everyone wishes that, of course, and everyone hopes for stability, prosperity, openness and security.
To achieve this, everyone is required to work on clear plans and visions and translate those into positive actions and results by putting them under a microscope to monitor them continuously.
However, if we want to work professionally and put the interests of the country above all, it is necessary for each ministry and government body to define its goals and set a clear mechanism for its implementation within the specified time and within the budget.
I do not want to go into details or on how to implement these plans since it is a purely administrative matter, but I believe we have exceptional minds capable of doing the best.
It is necessary to put in place a system to encourage the creation of a work culture, through the contribution of all workers in providing constructive ideas for innovation and development. Facilitating administrative procedures, systems and laws is one of the most important issues for development in the administrative work of any institution.
It is also important to give incentives and rewards to those who give creative ideas in every ministry or agency, as do companies, private institutions and banking institutions.
Encouragement and motivation are very important factors to encourage employees to come up with ideas and solutions, and the most important thing is the participation of everyone. We must not be wary of the capabilities of junior employees. On the contrary, we should involve them in various committees that will give them the confidence and the respect and they will feel we involved them in development. Experience tells me that whenever we respect people at all levels, we are in a much better position.
I put this into practice during my time and I realise how important it is to have a mix of employees from different departments and from different backgrounds, including women. Work was fun and organised and responsibilities were distributed to everyone and consequently the results were better.
I speak from experience and am convinced we do not need to complicate this. All we need is humility and respect for everyone.
We should be aware that the youngest employee in any institution can harm its reputation if he wants to, so it is necessary for this employee to feel important and aware he is doing tremendous work to achieve all goals.
It is, therefore, important to put in place a mechanism that starts from the top of the administrative pyramid.
The challenges are great and if we do not look at solutions from within, we cannot achieve any goal or improve our business. We must also apply all administrative systems to the senior employees before the junior ones. For example, and not limited to, it is not right to allow officials to be late for work but this should be applied to everyone across the board.
We need new thinking, new blood, fair and effective systems for everyone to feel equal. If we are to work properly, we should never look at personal interests.
