The Civil Service Commission recognized the Department of the Interior and Local Government Cordillera for receiving the Prime-HRM Bronze Award for human resource systems, practices, and competencies in relation to the CSC’s Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (Prime-HRM).

The Prime-HRM aims to develop and empower all agencies in the government.

“You can be confident that our department will continue to advance as a result of our collaborative efforts. I commend DILG for their dedication and perseverance in achieving this success, especially in these trying times,” said Local Government Usec. Marlo Iringan during the conferment ceremony facilitated by CSC-CAR Director Marilyn Taldo.

Regional Director Araceli San Jose said DILG-CAR was also found to have observed the Civil Service law and rules on the issuance of appointments and other HR programs and has maintained its HR records and management.

“CSC assessed the maturity level of the department’s competencies, systems, and practices in four HR core systems as a banner program: recruitment, selection, and placement; learning and development; performance management; and rewards and recognition,” San Jose said.

She added pursuant to CSC Resolution 2100151 dated Feb. 16, the agency will be enjoying the following incentives: authority to take final actions on appointments; the agency shall not fill up vacancies resulting from promotion until the promotional appointments have been approved/validated by the CSC, except meritorious cases, as may be authorized by the Commission; 20 percent discount rate for the HRMO head or one agency representative for Civil Service Institute and CSC regional office’s trainings/conferences and other incentives specified in the resolution.

San Jose assured the agency will continue to provide excellent public service while adhering to the government’s community quarantine protocols in order to combat Covid-19. – Press release
