Review the govt employees' pay structure


Corruption exists in every country including Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, we see corruption mostly in the government offices. According to Human Resource Management (HRM), an attractive compensation package is very important for any employee. Corruption mostly occurs due to very low wages and benefits given to the employees. Some employees cannot manage their living expenses with their poor salary. To maintain a minimum standard of living, many government officials get involved in corruption and make money by illegal means. Reasonable compensation package is very vital to curb this kind of corruption. So, the government needs to make a new compensation structure based on the country's economy. It should also regularly review the pay structures. This will motivate people and help them live peacefully. The employees should at the same time be duly warned of punishment they will have if they are found indulging in corruption.

I hope the government will pay attention to the matter and review the pay structure.
