Public sector employees complaining about “repetitive” and “uninspiring” work

Public sector employees with the Department of Public Works have been complaining about working too hard and “drowning in a pool of repetitive, menial and uninspiring” work, an internal report reveals. The report, which was obtained by Blacklock’s Reporter, was the work of Mental Health Ombudsman André Latreille. “We have been seeing employees coming to our Office in great distress as a result of their workload for several years now,” writes Latreille. “As our employees have repeatedly told us, it is difficult if not impossible to find meaning and dignity in work when all we can do is try to keep from drowning in a pool of repetitive, menial and uninspiring tasks that don’t adequately leverage the unique abilities, strengths and talents of our people.”
