  I Report of the Civil Service Commission
Pursuant to Section 7 of the | Civil Service Act," from
January 1st to December 31st, 1954
The Civil Service Commission is the centralized agency for the direction and clearance of the Government's personnel management policies. The major functions are
selection of the best available personnel; equitable salary administration through a
system of position classification; and management problems of staff size, efficiency, and
training. J| jf
In addition to its regular duties, the Commission was faced during 1954 with special
problems such as staff adjustments consequent to the reorganization of the British
Columbia Hospital Insurance Service; the institution and control of a revised system of
temporary appointment; the sponsoring of a Civil Service Health Centre in Victoria;
and the Government's announcement of the placing of the greater part of the Service
on a 40-hour (or less) work basis per week.
Usual meetings were held throughout the year. In addition, each member reviewed
numerous reports for final consideration and disposal. Representatives of various
employee groups and departmental officials were heard from time to time.
SIZE AND COMPOSITION OF THE CIVIL SERVICE
For the first time in a decade, enrolment in the Civil Service showed a decrease.
On December 31st, 1953, the total number of probationary and permanent Civil Servants
enrolled was 7,995 {see Table 3, page 24, Annual Report, 1954); the corresponding
number at December 31st, 1954, was 7,945 {see Appendix, Table 3), a decrease of 50.
The gross total (including temporary employees) at the end of 1953 was 8,543; the
corresponding number at the end of 1954 was 8,523 {see Appendix, Tables 3 and 4),
a decrease of 20. Hence the enrolment curve, which flattened out during 1953, took a
slight dip during 1954.
An analysis of type of appointment and enrolment in each department of Government is given in the Appendix, Tables 3 and 4. Roughly 15 per cent of the permanent
Civil Service staff are probationers.
AMENDMENTS TO REGULATIONS
Most of the amendments to Civil Service regulations during 1954 were concerned
with hours of work. The most important was Order in Council No. 2875, approved
December 21st, which provided for the implementation by April 1st, 1955, of a maximum
40-hour work-week for the entire Civil Service, with the exception of psychiatric nurses
and psychiatric aides on the staffs of the mental hospitals and ferry personnel and firefighters in the Public Works Department. As a result of this Order in Council, the
weekly hours of work for the Civil Service will be generally as follows:—
Hours
(1) Clerical, administrative, and professional classifications
(about 45 per cent of the Service)  36%
(2) Custodial and maintenance classifications (about 42 per
P cent of the Service) |  40
(3) Psychiatric nurses, psychiatric aides,  and ferry crews
(about 13 per cent of the Service)  44
(4) Fire-fighters (about 0.002 per cent of the Service)  48

 HH 10
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Other classifications brought into the normal pattern were as follows:—
Order in Council No. 558, approved March 19th, 1954, as amended by Order in
Council No. 743, provided that the general attendance (exclusive of meal periods) f0r
janitors and all employees engaged in the maintenance of and repairs to Government
buildings throughout the Civil Service, employed on day shifts, be forty-four hours per
week, and for such personnel employed on night shifts, forty hours per week. Consequent
to the 40-hour week, approved by Order in Council No. 2875, a further Order in Council
(No. 2900, approved December 22nd, 1954) revised the hours stated in Order No. 558
to forty hours for day janitors (exclusive of meal periods) and to forty hours for night
janitors (inclusive of meal periods) and also set the forty hours as the weekly number
for barbers and hairdressers.
Order in Council No. 1098, approved May 21st, 1954, provided that the work-week
for employees of the Forest Service Marine Station in Vancouver should be forty hours.
Order in Council No. 2560, approved November 12th, 1954, set the hours of work
for registered nurses to be forty on a 5-day week, and forty-two and five-eighths on a
5V2-6.2iy week.
For the purpose of aligning Government hours of service to the public, Order in
Council No. 2623, approved November 23rd, 1954, as amended by Order in Council
No. 2698, set the office and work hours of Government employees in certain areas in the
eastern and northern sections of the Province.
Order in Council No. 2318, approved October 12th, 1954, amended the Regulations
Governing the Granting of Sick-leave to Civil Servants by providing that, in exceptional
cases, evidence in a form other than the certificate of a duly qualified medical practitioner
may be referred by the Commission to the Health Branch for consideration and advice.
Order in Council No. 2699, approved November 30th, 1954, rescinded the regulations governing the enlistment of Provincial Government employees in Her Majesty's
Forces and made provision for revised regulations, which stipulate a maximum 3-year
period for leave of absence from Provincial Government employ for the purpose of
serving with Her Majesty's Forces.
APPOINTMENT AND RECRUITMENT RATE £
During the year 2,120 new—that is, probationary and casual—and confirmed
permanent appointments—that is, employees who have successfully completed probationary periods in 1954—were made by the Commission {see Appendix, Table 2). This
is a figure which is 64 larger than the similar figure for 1953.
The number of separations reported is 2,529 {see Appendix, Table 9). In the same
period 968 gained permanent appointment to the Service {see Appendix, Table 8). This
latter figure includes probationary appointments carried over from some of the 1,054
probationary employees appointed in 1953. Of the 2,120 new appointments, 1,149 were
probationary and 533 were casual {see Appendix, Table 2). Thus, by adding the
number of probationary appointments (1,149) and the number of casual appointments
(533), it is possible to arrive at the number of new appointments made during the year,
which was 1,149 plus 533 equalling 1,682, being 19.7 per cent of the gross total number
of appointments of 8,523 as at December 31st, 1954. This 19.7-per-cent recruitment
rate is only 0.2 per cent higher than that for 1953. It would appear that the Service,
as stated in our last Annual Report, is securing some degree of stability. -^^-

SEPARATIONS
Again this year the Chief Personnel Officer's analysis of the reasons for the
separation of permanently appointed personnel from the Service indicates no divergence
from normal trends, with the satisfactory exception that the percentage of dismissals for
unsatisfactory services has shown a decline of from 10 per cent of separations to 4 per
cent of separations, since 1952 {see page 16).
Evidence that permanent appointment is not automatically obtained, or that once
secured it cannot be withdrawn, is found in the fact that 54 employees were dismissed
during the year and 61 had their probationary periods extended. In addition, 10 suffered
suspensions without dismissals.
The following tabulation shows the extent of this disciplinary trend during the past
three years:—

GENERAL ELIGIBILITY EXAMINATIONS
General assembled stenographic, clerical, and draughting examinations for the
establishment of eligibility lists in the junior classifications were held four times during
the year in Victoria, in addition to constant smaller and individual examinations in the
Commission's office. In Vancouver it again was found impossible to maintain eligibility
lists for a reasonable period of time. Hence applicants were examined constantly in the
Commission's Vancouver office. Interior points were served through the never-failing
courteous assistance of the Department of Finance Government Agents, who, when
necessary, conducted the examinations.
In the Victoria centre the total number of applicants who were examined in these
junior written examinations amounted to 751. Of this number, 455 or 61 per cent
qualified.   In the Vancouver area 309 were examined, of which 278 or 89 per cent
qualified.
The records of both these offices during the past few years are as follows:—

One of the reasons given to explain why the Vancouver qualification percentages
are higher than the Victoria percentages is that in the Victoria centre many candidates
who have failed the generally assembled examinations appear for a re-examination (sometimes after a second failure) some time later in the year. This apparently does not
happen so frequently in Vancouver, as to date there have been no generally assembled
examinations, and, in addition, the competition for workers in Vancouver is keener than
^ Victoria. §
Written examinations are used also for competitions in other classifications, as the
need arises.   Such examinations during the year were:  Personnel Officer, Mental Health
 HH 12 BRITISH COLUMBIA
Services; Departmental Comptroller, Department of the Attorney-General; Assistant
Chief Land Inspector; Senior Clerk—Grade 1, Parks Division, Forest Service; and
Sanitary Inspector trainees, Health Branch. I
Jj PROMOTIONAL POLICY       jt '^^$--
lllf The usual policy of promotion of as wide an advertising of vacancies as possible
and of giving preference to in-Service personnel when qualifications were judged equivalent to applications from without the Service, was continued. In order to guard against
in-Service breeding, all vacancies advertised within the Service are simultaneously advertised in the newspapers, inviting public application. Of the 543 vacancies posted within
the Service and advertised publicly, 371 or 68 per cent were filled from within the Service.
j| | IN-SERVICE TRAINING ||t -; ■ -|
4f: The usual training courses, conducted by the various departments and referred to
in previous Annual Reports of this Commission, were continued throughout the year.
In addition to formal departmental courses, some departments conduct annual or biennial
conferences of their key field personnel.
Supervisory training courses were continued. They are well received by the
personnel concerned. In 1954 the total number of supervisors who attended these
intensive courses amounted to 405. They were held in various centres in the Okanagan
Valley; on the C.P.R. main line; at the Pearson Tuberculosis Hospital, Vancouver; The
Woodlands School, New Westminster; the Provincial Mental Hospital, Essondale; and
in the Division of Vital Statistics in Victoria.
Since the inauguration of these courses in 1950, more than 1,200 supervisors have
been enrolled, as follows:—

THE VANCOUVER AND ESSONDALE OFFICES
Work on the Mainland, as indicated in former Annual Reports, reached the stage
where relief became imperative. As a result, the placement of a Civil Service Commission personnel officer to serve the Mental Health Services from the hospital at Essondale
was recommended by the Government and approved in the Estimates of the Legislative
Assembly. An open competition for the appointment was held. The vacancy was advertised throughout Canada, and written and oral examinations were held. Mr. G. L.
Tomalty, a B.A. graduate in Economics and Government from the University of British
Columbia, who also has a Master of Public Administration degree from the University
of Washington, won the competition. He was serving at the time as personnel assistant
in the Department of Public Works.   He commenced his new duties in August.
The institution of this office not only will lighten the work in the Vancouver office,
but, in addition, will intensify the work of the Commission in respect to the mental
institutions and hence expedite personnel administration in these institutions. A consolidated report of both the Vancouver and Essondale offices is given elsewhere in this
Report. Transfer of staff, consequent to the closing of the Jericho Tuberculosis Unit,
has been satisfactorily handled by the Vancouver office in co-operation with the Division
of Tuberculosis Control.
 CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION REPORT HH 13
CLASSIFICATION AND SALARY PLAN
The work of the Classification Division is tabulated in the Appendix, Tables 17 and
19 The total number of official classification reviews amounted to 678. This may be
compared to 728 in 1953, 818 in 1952, 980 in 1951, and 708 in 1950. In addition,
special assignments involving investigations and reports on various conditions of service'
such as hours of work and prevailing wage and salary studies, are continually being
conducted by the Classification Division. ^ v       |
DEPARTMENTAL ESTABLISHMENTS ' f:      V
During the year 191 new positions were classified into the Service and 488 positions
were deleted {see Appendix, Table 19). As reported by the Classification Officer, this
table 1 does not show increases to certain positions in mental hospitals, such as psychiatric nurses and aides, where staff has increased with the growth of these institutions."
Considering this, it appears the number of probationary and permanent employees within
the Civil Service shows a decrease of fifty from the end of December, 1953, to the end
of December, 1954. It is estimated that the savings effected through classification and
organization studies exceeded $75,000.
The reorganization of the Hospital Insurance Service resulted in a reduction of its
staff from 445 to 95. A great deal of personnel administration, including establishment
reorganization, reorganized position classifications, and personnel transfers, was involved.
The task was smoothly and competently accomplished, largely through the understanding
and co-operation of senior officials from the Hospital Insurance Service, the Finance
Department, and the Civil Service Commission.
SICK AND SPECIAL LEAVE
A total of 51,588 days' sick-leave were granted during the period October 1st, 1953,
to September 30th, 1954—42,353V6 days with pay and 9,234^ without pay. This is
an average of 6.6 days per Civil Servant enrolled as at September 30th, 1954 {see
Appendix, Table 5), an increase over the average for the previous 12-month period,
which was 6.4 days. These figures do not include sick-leave granted to Civil Servants
as Workmen's Compensation Board or Department of Veterans' Affairs cases.
The average salary as at September 30th, 1954, calculated on a daily-rate basis,
was $11.50, so that it will be seen the cost of sick-leave granted with pay in this 12-month
period was $487,065. While this figure seems high, most of the sick-leave was of short
duration, no payment for relief assistance being required.
Twenty-eight employees are on leave of absence serving with units of Her Majesty's
Forces under the provisions of Orders in Council Nos. 2223/50 and 2857/50, and
during the year fifty-six employees were granted special leave for the purpose of training
with Reserve units of Her Majesty's Forces or to take officers' training courses. Two
employees are serving with United Nations Organizations. |
Fifty-seven employees were granted special leave of absence for further training and
study, in some cases with the assistance of Federal health grants. Jj
During the year a Civil Service Health Unit under the direct supervision of the
Director of Environmental Management of the Health Branch was inaugurated. A clinic
with a nurse in charge for the handling of Government employees in the Victoria area
was put into operation. It is too early yet to report on the effectiveness of the unit, but
nwch is expected in the way of the administration of the principles of public health in
he ranks of the Government's own employees.
GRIEVANCES
For the third consecutive year, no formal grievance was heard by the Commission.

1 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
During the year, centres in the Okanagan and C.P.R. main line, including Kamloops
received official visits. I
During the year the Commission was favoured with a visit from a member of the
Board of Commissioners of the British Civil Service, namely, Mr. C. J. Hayes, Director
of Examinations. The visit proved mutually beneficial in the exchange of information
on the methods of public personnel management and recruitment as practised in both
countries.
I The Commission wishes to express its appreciation of the co-operation given in its
work by the various departments of Government, and by the Federal and Provincial
Civil Service Commissions. It also desires to express, to each member of its technical
and clerical staffs, appreciation for the never-failing efficient and loyal support.

Of the in-Service promotions, 52 or 14 per cent were made by transfer from one
department to another, which indicates service-wide channels of promotion for career
Civil Servants.
A special placement problem was posed in May, 1954, when 380 staff members
of the Hospital Insurance Service were released through changes in Government policy.
Of these, 196 were eligible for and sought further Government employment. (This does
not include married women who were not self-supporting or persons who had arranged
other employment for themselves.) To date, 165 of this group have been placed in the
Civil Service, which includes all those with eight or more years' service. The remaining
31 are on eligibility or priority lists for re-entry into the Service.
The closing of the Jericho Tuberculosis Unit in Vancouver did not constitute a similar
problem, since the majority of staff have been readily absorbed into other institutions.

§j| For the month of March, 1954, the Chief Personnel Officer was granted special
leave to work with the Selection and Training Analysis Unit, Royal Canadian Air Force,
in Toronto.
Miss J. M. Campbell organized and led an extension course in personnel management, given at Victoria College (Evening Division), sponsored by the Pacific Northwest
Personnel Management Association, and also lectured on this subject to a supply officers'
training course, Royal Canadian Navy, Esquimalt.
Assistance is given all Government departments in problems of personnel administration, supervision, etc. The closest co-operation is maintained with placement officers
of National Employment Service, the Department of Veterans' Affairs, the Workmen's
Compensation Board, and the Greater Victoria school system.    fjl

REPORT OF THE CLASSIFICATION OFFICER, A. G. RICHARDSON, M.A.
CLASSIFICATION AND JOB EVALUATION
Table 17, attached, indicates the distribution by department and type of classification
reviews during 1954, with comparative figures for previous years. The total number of
reviews were fewer than in previous years, but the percentage of upward revisions was
larger. Proportionately the number of reviews resulting in no change in salary or
downward revisions were less than in previous years. For example, 76 per cent of reviews
resulted in upward revisions in 1954, whereas only 67 per cent produced the same result
in 1953 and 62 per cent in 1952, indicating that departmental and employees' requests
for reclassification are becoming increasingly justified. This may indicate, as a result of
the reduction in total numbers of requests, that there is a greater degree of selection on
the part of departmental officials and the employees themselves. It also indicates a better
appreciation of the value of jobs and the principles of job evaluation.
During the year a revised aid to job evaluation of clerical positions was placed in
operation. This is a point system similar to that previously in use, but in a simpler form.
A system of job evaluation for professional positions is in the process of development and
is presently being discussed with departmental heads and other senior officials.
In conjunction with classification studies a number of salary surveys were conducted
during the year, as follows:—

in title, by the addition of 66 positions and the deletion of 105 others. The Schedules
therefore list 39 fewer categories than were listed at the beginning of the year. There
are at present 847 listed in the Schedules.
ESTABLISHMENTS Jj
The Division continued to maintain a check on departmental establishments by
reviewing some positions already established and all new positions. Table 19, attached,
indicates the number of these reviews by departments. It indicates that there were 191
new positions added to the Service in 1954 and 488 positions deleted from the Service.
The table does not show increases to certain positions in mental hospitals, such as
psychiatric nurses and aides, where staff has increased with the growth of these institutions. Taking these into consideration, the number of permanent employees within the
Civil Service shows a decrease of 64 from the end of December, 1953, to the end of
November, 1954. i
FINANCIAL ASPECTS
The approximate savings on classification reviews during the year were $40,000 and
on establishment reviews approximately $35,000, a total of $75,000.   |
 CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION REPORT HH 19
REPORT OF PERSONNEL OFFICERS, VANCOUVER AND ESSONDALE
S. B. Williscroft, B.Comm., Vancouver
G. L. Tomalty, M.P.A., Essondale
During 1954 the Vancouver office continued to be engaged in recruiting and placing
personnel; assessing positions for classification purposes; conducting staff and organizational surveys; investigating grievances and advising officials on matters relating to
personnel practices as they concern the Government offices and institutions situated on
the Lower Mainland. Over the period of the last several years the bulk of this work
increased annually, and, as a result, the Civil Service Commission appointed a personnel
officer for duty in the Mental Health Services during August last. The office of this
official is situated in the Crease Clinic, Essondale, and it provides complete service to the
institutions and offices of the Mental Health Services.
The recruitment and placement of personnel during 1954 through advertising and
posting continued to maintain the high level of activity experienced in former years and
resulted in a total of 1,099 appointments on the Lower Mainland, including those initiated
by the Civil Service Commission office, Essondale. This number of appointments constitutes an increase of 231 over the total of 1953. Table 16, attached, shows the distribution of these appointments by position classification. It is of interest to note that
competition for appointments to non-technical and non-professional positions was very
keen, and on several occasions over 200 applications were received for one position.
Competition for technical and professional positions was less intense, but in most
instances it was adequate for recruiting purposes.
During the past year all candidates for clerical and stenographic positions were
subjected to qualifying examinations. Unfortunately a continuous shortage of candidates
made the conduct of group examinations and the establishment of eligibility lists impractical, and instead continuous individual tests were administered in order that vacancies
could be filled with a minimum of delay. The following table provides a summary of
the examinations given during the year:—
Passed Failed
Junior Clerk  33 3
Clerk—Grade 1   59 4
Clerk-Typist  83f 14
^   Stenographer—Grades 1 and 2 1  0j^ 10
Clerk-Stenographer  _._,_ f       9
Secretarial Stenographer       5
Totals  278 31
V^:    Grand total, 309.
During 1954 this office and the Mental Health Services office assisted the classifications officer by conducting twenty-eight investigations and surveys relative to position
classifications and organizational requirements, and continued to examine the duties of
positions becoming vacant to determine if any change in classification should be made
before they were refilled.
The closing during 1954 of the Mainland offices of the Hospital Insurance Service
and the Jericho Tuberculosis Unit created a problem in respect to a transfer of staff, but
a current survey indicates that all redundant staff, with two or three exceptions, have been
absorbed satisfactorily into other positions. In addition, fourteen transfers of staff were
effected because of compassionate grounds or service requirements.
The supervisory training courses carried out on the Mainland during 1954 concerned
chiefly institutions of the Mental Health Services and Tuberculosis Control. Officials
of both of these services have expressed appreciation of the instruction given, and it is
recommended that the courses be continued as intensively as possible.
