He also states that taking into account the experiences to date from the implementation of this measure, we should point out that many employees are not familiar with the technology and do not have access to the internet, so they either ask for service from others or delay or neglect to apply with resulting in losses on bonuses.
What PEO proposes
A) To hold meetings of operational Departments of your Ministry (Y.KA T.E.) that have to do with these procedures, with PEO executives to be informed and trained so that in turn to help employees in electronics processing of procedures.
B) With the introduction of the electronic procedure, the existing procedure should be continued for a while until the employees are informed or familiar with the new procedure.
