It's also a dig at incremental payments.
And are you saying that learning, challenge and enterprise exist in the PS because the archaic policies and work practices they retain would suggest otherwise. eg An Post, HSE, CC's, etc etc etc.
There are some exceptions such as the revenue but they are few and far between.
There's plenty learning opportunities and challeneges in the sector, maybe not so much enterprise.
I'd very much like things to change in the sector. The work practices are made far worse by the sheer level of management (manager who cannot manage) grades to be honest.
Sorting out the ratio of chiefs to Indians would improve things in the public sector in a multiple of ways.
