The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Region 6 received the PRIME-HRM Bronze Award Maturity Level 2 Accreditation by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) Region 6.

CSC Regional Director Nelson G. Sarmiento together with CSC Region 6 Field Office - Iloilo Director John Esar T. David congratulates the DENR Region 6 Office for conferring the PRIME-HRM Bronze Award during their visit at the DENR Courtyard, recently.

Regional Executive Director Francisco E. Milla, Jr., on behalf of the DENR Region 6, received the congratulatory certificate given by the Civil Service Commission.

The Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) aims to successfully transform the agencies’ human resource management systems, competencies and practices, elevating HR to a level of excellence for good governance, efficiency and effective public service delivery.

The Civil Service Commission is mandated to inspect and audit the personnel actions and programs of the departments and other government offices and to also conduct periodic review of the decisions and actions of offices with delegated authority by the Commission.

With these, the CSC launched the CSC Agency Accreditation Program (CSCAAP) and enhanced through the Personnel Management Assessment and Assistance (PMAAP) which adopted the PRIME-HRM that strategically aligns the government agencies in achieving their goals and excellent performance of human resources management functions, encouraging innovativeness, integrity and productivity in public service.

DENR Region 6 has met the maturity level indicators in all four (4) HRM systems which are; Recruitment, Selection and Placement; Performance Management; Learning and Development; and Rewards and Recognition.

The Department was also granted privileges such as authority to approve appointments subject to post audit and also to maintain the status under Level 2 and continue to improve in its HRM systems for the next higher level. RD Sarmiento said not too many agencies have achieved the Bronze Award for Maturity Level II.

Moreover, the CSC will be having a joint tree planting activity in connection to the Linggo ng Kalikasan for its 120th CSC Anniversary celebration with the tentative date set on September 25, 2020. The CSC plans to limit the participation of its personnel and other participants to observe heath protocols to prevent contracting the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

“I would like to proudly congratulate all the DENR Region 6 personnel for possessing exemplary public service that bears the PRIME-HRM Bronze Award Maturity Level 2. We are a step higher to serve the public efficiently as we continue to improve our human resource systems,” said regional executive director Francisco E. Milla, Jr.
