Incentives for civil servants requesting transfers to remote areas
The government is considering introducing a series of incentives in order to encourage civil servants to move to services and bodies in remote areas, away from urban centers.
Aside from any rating incentives for moving to border and remote areas, the Ministry of Finances is examining the possibility of financial incentives, within the scope of budget limitations.
The Alternate Minister of Administrative Reform Christoforos Vernardakis will soon publicized a draft a bill on mobility within the public sector, so that it is easier to staff services with civil servants that have necessary skills. The aim of the plan is to ensure that services and agencies across the country are adequately staffed.
Most civil servants who have completed two years of service at their post will be eligible for such transfers, with the exception of employees in the ESY national healthcare system (minus administrative personnel), the ambulance service and judicial employees. Teachers will also be exempt from this plan, since the Ministry of Education has its own system for transfers.
According to the plan being drafted by the Alt. Minister, a Central Mobility Committee will coordinate and overlook mobility within the public sector, after reviewing all applications and the needs of each service and body. This committee is expected to begin operating in January 2017.
