The Value of Human Resources in CWS - P/A

As part of its commitment towards continuous improvement, Church World Service-Pakistan/Afghanistan (CWS-P/A) CWS-P/A regularly reviews HR policy and procedures. One of the critical areas for CWS-P/A is ‘staff care and rewards’. In South Asian culture, people are often raised in a culture of extreme hard work and self sacrifice. The ability to take on more work is not usually recognised as a skill. Therefore people do not necessarily think about compensating the efforts that their staff put into their work.
