By Ninfa B Quirante
CATBALOGAN CITY (September 20) -- As the Civil Service Commission (CSC) celebrates its 107th anniversary, government employees are once more reminded to perform satisfactorily as career officials.
In a press conference held at the Calbayog City's Handumanan Hall on September 18, 2007, CSC Provincial Director Gerardo Cordero reminded the workers in government to perform satisfactorily.
He added that out of the 80 M Filipinos, only 1M is employed by the government.
"You should feel lucky!" Cordero said.
The director also explained about flexi-time and how an employee can avail of the privilege.
Cordero also explained how an employee can pursue studies, teaching and even sidelines as long as the agency head should know and that the time and resources of the agency are not compromised.
Cordero also informed the audience listening to a live radio broadcast at Philippine Broadcasting Service (PBS) Radyo ng Bayan- DYOG that although the commission is very strict in its "spot audit" still it is not 'stingy' when it comes to giving awards to deserving civil servants.
He cited the case of Ms Isabel Eman, a public high school teacher of San Policarpo National High School of Calbayog City who because of her commitment and dedication to her career has been recognized by the Civil Service.
Ms. Eman was given citation for being a semi-finalist in the Pag-Asa Award, this is for outstanding work performance.
On the other hand, Cordero explained that there is an ongoing "spot audit" where members from the commission rounds up all government agencies to check on the presence and performance of government employees.
Cordero was able to answer and address the several issues raised by reporters from DYOG, Fil-products (CATV Network), Samarnews.com, Samar Sunday Star and PIA. Ms. Linda Calesa, Calbayog City Tourism and Information Chief hosted the presscon. (PIA-Samar) [top]
