CSC cited for good people management
MANILA, Philippines—The Civil Service Commission (CSC) was recently accredited by an international body for its excellent people management, making it the first government agency in the country and in Southeast Asia to receive the recognition.
The CSC was awarded the accreditation from Investors in People (IIP) early this week in a ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria.
CSC chair Francisco Duque III received the plaque of accreditation from Australian Embassy deputy head of mission doctor David Dutton, IIP Philippines chief executive Gerry Plana and chair Janet Webster.
“It was a challenge preparing for the assessment and audit, so we are extremely proud of this achievement. This IIP Accreditation reflects the CSC’s resolve to push for excellent human resource and organization development in the bureaucracy, starting with our own organization,” Duque said.
The agency achieved standard level accreditation by meeting 39 globally accepted people management practices based on the IIP Framework, which uses 10 indicators in assessing an organization.
The indicators include having a well-understood business strategy, a learning and development plan for employees, an empowered workforce, and an effective management.
