MINISTRY of iTaukei staff need to continuously come up with new ideas, implement modern management techniques, get corporate plans done properly, find better solutions to problems and ensure prudent utilisation of resources.
Their permanent secretary Savenaca Kaunisela made this comment during the launch of the ministry's corporate uniform in Suva on Monday, stressing that wearing the new uniform was one thing but performing to the best of their ability was another.
"We must continue to work together as a team, to improve our image, to work smarter to motivate others and to overcome challenges," Mr Kaunisela said.
"I must say our concerted effort is an encouraging sign of progress that places emphasis on honesty, team work, integrity, professional principles and high standard of service delivery.
"Our uniform will be worthless if we do not demonstrate our profession's work ethics at all times."
He said staff members should show others who they were and what they could do with enthusiasm and joy.
"As we re-look at our various responsibilities we need to be prepared to tackle high expectations from the people we serve."
