As this is a government department, there are a lot of processes and procedures for everything. The work environment is very stressful as you are servicing the public and are mostly reliant on other units to complete one task and that can prove to be very frustrating if you"re working with incompetent or demoralized people.

There isn't much room for creativity or growth as people resist change and new ways of doing things.

The Supervisor managed staff performance in line with applicable Performance Management Policy. Employees were well motivated to go extra mile to do their job.

I have learnt and acquired in depth customer care skills and professionalism when dealing with clients.


The organizational culture enhanced good code of practice where employees are trained to respect and to be honest when executing their duties on a daily basis.


The hardest part of job is where you have to deal with influx of clients seeking assistance for the day. Some clients were impatient.


Management praised their staff for their good work by using a very exciting strategy , like granting a good performer a flexi hours , buying lunch and day-off.

It must be noted with great concern that most or either all Government Department are politicized. Expect any new development at anytime whenever there is change in Government Administration.
