No more sneaking in late or leaving early at the Vatican.
Senior clerics will have to swipe plastic cards when entering and leaving, all in a drive to improve time-keeping and efficiency.
The cards have been issued to everyone from the lowest office staff to the heads of departments, even if they are priests and archbishops, though there has been no mention if Pope Benedict XVI carries one.
Well, he is German, and we know how they like efficiency. This next item puzzles me a bit,though.
Next year there are plans to introduce performance-related pay.
Performance pay? I'd be interested in seeing the criteria for that.
