Report on a Proposed Classification of Titles and Positions in the Civil Service
Excerpt from Report on a Proposed Classification of Titles and Positions in the Civil Service: Of the City of Rochester, N. Y These conditions Obviously made it impossible for the Board Of Estimate and Apportionment to review items of expenditure for personal service in the budget and arrive at just conclusions advisedly. They were the cause for many administrative difficulties in assigning work, as well as for frequent and unnecessary irritations arising over questions of salary. The Civil Service Commission was unable to maintain standard titles for the employees in the classified service. These Observations are by no means peculiar to the City Of Rochester. The same conditions have prevailed in the public service in other cities, states, and the federal government, where but little attention has been given to the solution of the problem. From many points of view this problem of personnel, containing all Of the elements in the relationship between employer and employee, presents the most important and vital interest Of the hour. TO suggest this is unnecessary. Its extreme import ance is clearly evidenced by the outstanding fact that this country and other nations, both in connection with private industry and public employ ment, are teeming with efforts to ameliorate conditions SO as to make emmoyment, the human being at work, a means for achieving a just and contented livelihood. Intricate as the problem is for private industry, it is even more complex for the public service where the employer is the great mass of people. In the latter instance there are all of the subtleties and peculiarities of the public service which make the problem difficult. There is not a Single individual acting as an employer. NO one person or group of persons is responsible for creating positions and contracting for personal service; but instead, there is the electorate and the citizenry governing by means of their accredited representatives. City employees are several steps removed from their actual and real employers. To administer the personal service in the public employ Obviously requires procedures and methods that are peculiar to a democratic form of government.
