‘Trust your insight’ – Premier Fahie

Hon Fahie thanked the Public Officers for their hard work and dedication despite having to work in unfavourable conditions, post-hurricane Irma.

“No matter what is happening, trust your insight and not your eyesight, because your insight is where God put the hope in you, so thank you and congratulations,” Premier Fahie said.

Acting Governor, Mr Archer Jr stated that by October 2020, Public Officers will not only demonstrate to the BVI but also to the world how well we serve clients in the Public Service by publishing our overall stats and challenging people to challenge us for our customer service experience.

Mr Archer Jr said, “October 2020 and even before then, we will have a different outlook of how we serve our clients within the Public Service, not because I may say so or you may say so, but because the statistics will actually say so.”

Awardees

A public officer is inducted into the Star Membership Club after receiving exceptional customer service ratings from members of the public via the Public Service Customer Service Virtual Mailbox.
