Motivating civil servants, the Korean way

From the Korea Herald:

"Officials at the Civil Service Commission, the government's personnel management agency, said yesterday it is developing new guidelines for the evaluation of public servants under which incompetent officials will face demotion to lower grades and positions.

The new five-scale index is scheduled to be implemented in April at the latest, officials said

The new scheme is designed to improve the productivity of officials and remove unqualified officials from their posts, the CSC official said....The program will offer reprimanded officials an opportunity to explain their position. They will be removed from their current posts and given a second chance in the form of an offer by other departments before being reassigned to new duties, such as enforcing traffic regulations and cleaning streets. If they fail to reflect and improve over a period of six months, they will eventually be fired".

I think they might be on to something.

The English Civil Service was modelled on the Chinese Imperial Civil Service when the levels of corruption and the use of political placemen and patronage reached unacceptable levels in the mid- nineteenth century.

Northcote-Trevelyan replaced the personal patronage and client practice with an examination-governed two-type entry system - administrative and executive , which stood till Fulton in the mid-twentieth century reformed it to allow more scope to professional skills rather than pre-eminence to generalists.

This English Civil Service is the model for those in states world-wide, as your report on Korea shows.

Among the many horrors that are the Labour party is the determined destruction wreaked upon the administrative governance of England.

We are back to the mid-eighteenth century, with the Treasury as the central sucking hole in the morass of corruption installed over the last 10 years.

Certainly you know all this but 'what is going on' under NuLab is so extensive that it might not hurt to keep spelling it out.
