The Head of Civil Service (HCS), Nana Agyekum Dwamena, has urged Civil Servants to resolve to make the performance contracting system work and become part of the work ethics of the Ghana Civil Service.

He said the sustenance of the performance contracting system will go a long way to assure the taxpayer that his/her money is not being wasted on non-productive government employees. The new performance contracting system he noted will increase the productivity of the Civil Service and further strengthen the hand of the leadership and its Governing Council to demand from government improved conditions of service for Civil Servants.
