CSC Kalinga trains employees on new performance system
Tabuk, Kalinga (22 November) -- The Civil Service Commission (CSC) Field Office here is going around the municipalities to conduct training-workshop on how to institute mechanisms to measure productivity of employees in the local government units (LGU).
CSC Provincial Director Nerissa Canguilan led the series of orientation that includes the process and manner of accomplishing the performance evaluation form that records the productivity work outputs of every LGU employee.
training-workshops deals with new mechanisms for measuring work performance outputs where the system works on the formula that in a span of a year, every employee must have to show visible work accomplishments equivalent to 942 hours of work.
Canguilan explained that the employee in a span of a day must show a concrete work accomplishment equivalent to 4 hours of work in his official time. "It is presumed that the remaining 4 hours in his office time is spent by the employee by performing other works related to his functions that could not be measured in quantity like entertaining clients, attending meetings, and traveling for official business," she said.
"But the new system does not require the measurement of work accomplishment on a day-to-day basis. It sets the period of measurement every six months of a year or on annual basis to make the operation of the new system practically workable," Canguilan said.
She stressed that the new system improves work effectiveness and efficiency since its operation cures "headaches" (those who have little trainings and knowledge about their functions) among employees by mastering their functions; and duplication of functions in offices with overloaded staff can be corrected.
Offices are required to come up with the Performance Evaluation Reference Table showing the list of expected tangible work outputs. However, the CSC is yet to come out with a standardized list of tangible work outputs.
