Conflux or Conflict: How Public Managers and Public Employees See Civil Service Promotion

Jun Yi Hsieh, Huan-Jung Huang


Civil service promotion (CSP) is a key construct linked to other operations of public human resource management. However, it has received scant attention. This study uses second-order confirmatory factor analysis to test the theoretical perspectives of CSP. It then uses multiple regression to test how individual demographics influence public managers’ and public employees’ perceptions of CSP. The stratified samples were extracted from Taiwan’s cabinet-level ministries. The results demonstrated a significant difference in civil service promotion structure between public managers and public employees. The results also indicated that the respondents’ demographics are associated with differences in CSP between public managers and public employees. The findings and implications were discussed.
