Civil servants honoured for paperless drive
A group of civil servants has been recognised for their devotion to making Government business paper-free.
The 11 staff were praised for their “outstanding achievement”, “admirable service delivery” and “exemplary public service”.
The honours were the first given by the Public Service Excellence Awards scheme, which was designed to highlight the work of Government employees.
A Government spokeswoman said: “The PSEA’s is a programme that aims to encourage outstanding achievement and recognise public officers who are demonstrating admirable service delivery. Each month one individual or team will be selected for exemplary public service accomplished in the last 60 days.”
The staff singled out this month were Noel Taylor, Barrington Bryce, Nicole Simons, Khaliah Nisbett, Amaury Symonds, Brian Myrie, Tina Ming, David Wellman, Zarinah Codrington, Travis Smith-Simons, and Chante Pitcher.
The spokeswoman added: “The goal of the paperless task force is to achieve 100 per cent paperless processing in Government.
“The team has worked to establish a single approach for the electronic exchange of information within Government, which is a priority, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
David Burt, the Premier, said: “During the early stages of the pandemic this team was given a specific set of tasks, and they delivered admirably.”
Derrick Binns, the head of the Civil Service, added, “Collectively they worked tirelessly to provide safe and secure electronic interactions between the public and various government departments.”
