Too many Managers in Government

From recent Government figures, the number of staff at managerial level appears to be disproportionate in comparison to overall staffing.

There are many staff within Government at Executive Officer (Manager) level who don't actually have any staff to manage.  Departments can and do have more managers than staff.

Why the contribution is important

Control of staffing costs.

    A full analysis from front line up to senior management needs to be undertaken across all departments and intra- departmental to identify where the duplication of work sits and make sure that those in managerial roles are actually responsible for something!
    But it has to be bottom up - staff on the frontline know far more about what is going on and how it all works and fits together than senior managers who sit detached in offices often at separate sites.
