Minister of Social Affairs and Community Development Mai Al-Baghli revealed the factors that lead to the frustration of national competencies from working in the government sector, and their tendency to move to the private sector, with the top factor being the lack of financial privileges, reports Al-Qabas daily. In a letter sent to the Civil Service Commission (CSC), Al-Baghli revealed that 30 Kuwaiti employees resigned from the ministry and joined service centers in the private sector to enjoy the financial benefits allocated there, which resulted in many technical problems within the social welfare sector and other organizational units in the ministry. The minister asked CSC to reconsider the rewards for social and psychological job holders working in the ministry.
In her letter addressed to the Head of CSC Issam Al-Rubaian, Al-Baghli stressed that the lack of approval of the ministry’s request to include this category of employees in the Civil Service Council Resolution No. 16/2019 regarding jobs and rewards for Kuwaiti employees of the schools of the Ministry of Education occupying positions related to social and educational activities, educational technologies, libraries, classification of technically specialized documents, and some others related to supportive education activities and technologies that are not technically advanced, had contributed to the resignation of the ministry’s specialists.
She demanded that the matter be presented to the Civil Service Council in view of the importance of this category and its role in order to perform their work duties, and to reduce the turnover of cadres to other parties, as well as to improve their work environment and job stability and equate them with the occupants of those jobs in the Ministry of Education. In a similar context, Head of the Labor Union Yahya Al-Dousari praised Al-Baghli’s tireless efforts and her intensive meetings with the ministry’s leaders in support of the rights of social and psychological workers. Furthermore, the Personnel Affairs Committee in the Ministry of Social Affairs submitted a list of nominees for some supervisory positions, to the Civil Service Commission for its approval – a step that was taken after several meetings held by the committee.
