This is a press release from the Civil Service Commission.
The Civil Service Commission’s (CSC) regional and provincial offices are now accepting nominations to the 2021 Search for Outstanding Government Workers.
The annual Search forms part of CSC’s Honor Awards Program (HAP). The awards are given by the government to individuals or groups of individuals who have excelled and shown utmost dedication and commitment in public service.
All government workers in the career and non-career service including appointive barangay officials may be nominated. Employees who are under job orders or contracts of service are excluded from the coverage of the program.
The 3 award categories under the Search are the Presidential Lingkod Bayan, Outstanding Public Officials and Employees or the Dangal ng Bayan, and the CSC Pagasa.
The Presidential Lingkod Bayan is conferred to an individual or group for exceptional or extraordinary contributions that had a nationwide impact. Previous recipients of the Presidential Lingkod Bayan include Albay Representative Clemente “Joey” Sarte Salceda, former University of the Philippines president Alfredo E. Pascual, and Deputy Executive Director IV Joselito R. Chavez of the National Kidney and Transplant Institute.
The Dangal ng Bayan award is given to those who observe strict adherence to the norms of conduct, and those who positively influence others at work. Notable Dangal ng Bayan awardees in the past include Governor Edgardo M. Chatto of Bohol, Dr Eleanor Javonillo of Antipolo City, state auditor Concepcion M. Guanzon of the Commission on Audit Region 10, and Pablo U. Amascual III of the Leyte Normal University.
The CSC Pagasa Award is given to an individual or group of individuals for outstanding contributions that directly benefit more than one department of the government. Tagbilaran City Mayor John Geesnell L. Yap II, who received the CSC Pagasa award in 2019, institutionalized participatory and consultative governance as key to the city’s resilience and progress. Meanwhile, the 2018 group awardee developed an organic product using ethnobotanicals to control intestinal worms in native chicken.
