Public services sustainability is dependent on the availability, accessibility, acceptability, and quality of the civil servants. A flexible employment framework is needed to address inequality among regions in Indonesia. This framework contributes to public sector agility by enabling the redeployment of resources after they have been committed and the movement of staff to areas of strategic priority.
This study aims to provide an overview of the problems in the distribution of civil servants and to propose some strategies to foster mobility of civil servants in selected local governments in Indonesia. Mixed methods of qualitative nature, desk study, and field research for data collection were used. This study finds that there is uneven distribution of civil servants, inadequate human resources planning, and competence inadequacy. This study also describes some barriers to mobility and strategies proposed to foster mobility of civil servants and divided into two main approaches, namely, centralized and decentralized strategies.
