Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Registrar General’s Department (RGD), Dr. Patricia Holness, is calling on Jamaicans to treat each other with love, as one way to help in the improvement of the quality of life for all.
“Can you imagine the type of society we would have if we treated each other with the love and respect our mothers taught us? I challenge you to look within yourselves and make small changes and exhibit more of those values that we were taught,” Dr. Holness said.
She was speaking at a special Mother’s Day celebration, held at RGD head office in Twickenham Park, St. Catherine, recently. The event was held to honour Jamaica’s mothers, who are also customers of the RGD.
Dr. Holness thanked the mothers for contributing to Jamaica’s development, and reminded them of their awesome responsibility to the nation’s children by quoting author, W. R. Wallace, “the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.”
“Remember to love your mothers and make them proud as the world will judge your mother by your actions,” Dr. Holness said.
At the same time, the CEO told the mothers, other customers and staff of the plans and activities of the organisation, which redound to improved service delivery and efficiency.
“At the RGD we have come to do a lot of reflection and evaluation. In fact, as a Type C Executive Agency, we are held accountable by our Key Performance Indicators (KPIs),” Dr. Holness explained.
“We must achieve at least 80 per cent of these KPIs in order to receive performance pay. I am happy to report that at the end of the Financial Year, preliminary reports indicate that we achieved 83 per cent of our KPIs,” she announced.
