In 2016 alone, the PSC received 1.56 million applications for 25,046 job vacancies in the public sector, which is regarded as the government’s backbone.
The perception that the government offers low salaried jobs is no longer a distraction for university graduates from working in the public sector, especially with the various facilities and incentives offered for the well-being of civil servants.
Various perks and incentives are provided by the government, such as public holidays, salary increment, health facility, housing scheme and education aid for civil servants, making them the luckiest individuals.
Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) president DatukAzihMuda said the current transformation in the public service was due to the government’s tripartite policy that enabled negotiations among employers, the government and employees to be carried out in harmony.
Azih said the government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri NajibTunRazak, always listened to the plight of civil servants.
