KALIBO, Aklan–Two public servants in Aklan have been selected as semi-finalists in the 2021 Search for Outstanding Government Workers.
The annual search is undertaken by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to recognize the exemplary performance and display of integrity in public service.
The semi-finalists for the national search for the Dangal ng Bayan category are Head Teacher III Analyn Climaco Perez of Dina-ut Elementary School and Odiong Elementary School in Altavas, Aklan, and Administrative Aide I (Utility Worker I) John Laumoc Alcazarin of the Municipal Government of Numancia, Aklan.
Perez, a native of Catmon, Altavas, Aklan, has been working at the Department of Education for more than 13 years. Alcazarin, a native of Navitas, Numancia, Aklan, has been working at the LGU Numancia since 2005.
The Honor Awards Program (HAP) semi-finalists are automatically considered regional awards.
The Dangal ng Bayan Award is conferred to a government worker for the performance of an extraordinary act or public service and the consistent demonstration of exemplary ethical behavior in adherence to the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standard for Public Officials and Employees.
The awardees are committed to simple living, justness and sincerity, public interest, nationalism, commitment to democracy, professionalism, patriotism, political neutrality, sincerity, and responsiveness to the public.
The virtual conferment of awards for the civil servant-heroes is set for September 29, 2021, in line with the observance of the 121st Philippine Civil Service anniversary.
September is declared as the Civil Service Month under Presidential Proclamation No. 1050, series of 1997.
The 10th year theme of the CSC—”Transforming Public Service in the Next Decade: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Servant Heroes”—aims to highlight the HR reforms achieved as a response to the ‘new normal’ and the major changes to be undertaken in the next few years.
The culmination ceremony will be led by CSC regional director Nelson Sarmiento. (Boy Ryan Zabal/iNEWS-Aklan/Boracay Bureau)
