Reform of the Civil Service

Israel's civil service suffers from rigid labor relations, low mobility, a poor incentive structure and an inability of managers to assess employee quality and performance. This program seeks to promote an effective, efficient and transparent civil service that draws on the best talent Israel has to offer, promotes its most honest and dedicated employees on the basis of measurable merit on the job and provides outstanding service to the public.

The program is currently working with the Civil Service Commission on a series of proposals for reform of Israel's stagnant civil service. These include development of quantitative and qualitative measures for civil service effectiveness, improved methods for periodic review and assessment of civil servants and incentives for good performance.
