The Civil Service Commission is studying the application of the flexible fingerprint system for employees as a way of contributing to solving the traffic crisis on one hand, and to ensure the smooth functioning of government agencies on the other.
This happens as the ghost of traffic congestion has come to haunt again with the start of the school year and many MPs demand to solve this phenomenon, while government sources said the CSC study includes reviewing the fingerprint system from all sides to measure its compatibility with government agencies and the nature of their work, before proceeding with its adoption, reports a local Arabic daily.
The sources pointed out that the study aims to create a balance between adopting the best attendance system and not causing any disruption to the services provided by government agencies.
According to the sources, the flexible fingerprint system must be coordinated with the Ministry of Education to harmonize employee attendance schedules, with students’ working hours, taking into account parents who are committed to sending their children to schools, explaining that the flexible fingerprint allows the employee to adopt fixed appointments from one to two hours during which he proves his attendance, at the appropriate time for him, then he calculates the number of hours scheduled for work after the date of the fingerprint attendance, and then he leaves and can coordinate this timing with the dates of his children’s studies.
The sources concluded that the dates for adopting the attendance fingerprint, although flexible, should be appropriate for employees and officials as well, to ensure the progress of work and service provision, especially in the entities where the work is associated with the presence of the official.
