As the employee is the mirror of state policy and the person who holds the legal position that qualifies him to perform a job within the scope of performing policy, the public job is the legal method of carrying out the state public policy as well as the criterion for its advancement and the true test of development. An employee is the real representative of the state, where the state is only equal to what is equal to its employees, understand the element to its development or backwardness. However, the employee, over time, needs motivation for continuing productivity and work. Perhaps, the critical matter that the employee aspires to is the appreciation of the entity in which he works for his efficiency through legal channels that expand his powers to apply more and increase his administrative responsibilities. Of course, this brings material and moral advantages to the employee, as well as to the administrative body in general, and those dealing with the administrative body in specific. This increases the chances of achieving the administrative strategies set by the state. Moral and material incentives such as salaries, compensation, and rewards are elements of great importance to the employee. They are legally established rights, but the state always aims at developing and progress, taking into account the situation of its employees during their career path and giving them more aspirations. These aspirations consist of promotion from one rank to a higher one or from one rank to a higher one.
