dc.description.abstract Considers the value judgements of senior officials in the five largest local authorities in South Africa, with particular reference to their influence on personnel policy. Employment in a municipality is viewed as a special class of employment with specific public personnel management and professional considerations. First round Delphi ranking and weighting scenarios were conducted with forty-five senior officials using focused interviews. Results of the questionnaire were descriptively analysed on the basis of privileged communication. There was significant agreement, certainty and consistency among senior officials of different professions for attracting and maintaining professional staff in local government. Job satisfaction was ranked the highest factor. Management terminology was preferred to administration. It is found that a co-ordinated interdependent personnel function is needed. Greater use should be made of emerging semi-professionals or technicians. More delegation to officials resulted in an increased public scrutiny. en
