Prov’l Gov’t Launches Productivity Programs
To deliver quality public service, the Pangasinan Provincial Government is complementing its physical infrastructure development with human resource programs and empowerment when it launched its Productivity and Quality Programs today during its regular flag-raising ceremony at the Capitol Plaza.
“The provincial productivity and quality programs will surely give our offices another facelift, enhance individual commitments at work and further develop teamwork and camaraderie among employees within offices,” Vice-governor Marlyn Primicias-Agabas said during the program.
Included in the program are office practices such as the 5 S or Sweep, Sanitize, Sort, Systematize and Self-Discipline; ISTIV or Industriousness, Systematic, Time Conscious, Innovativeness and Value for Work; and the JIT or Just in Time.
Provincial Administrator Rafael Baraan led the reading of the pledge of commitment for the launching of the provincial programs on productivity and quality.
Simultaneous with the launching is the declaration of Pangasinan as Red Cross emblem misuse free.
According to Vice-governor Agabas, “Today, we are catapulting our province into a status attained only by a few local government units as we declare our province to be a territory free from violating the international agreement that the Red Cross emblem shall not be misused in order to protect its sanctity and neutrality.”
Board Member Jeremy Agerico Rosario informed the audience that Pangasinan is the sixth province in the entire country to declare as such, and said that “the declaration signifies our full commitment and dedication to the Red Cross movement and recognizes the importance of the role of Red Coss as an appellate of the government and as an independent humanitarian organization.”
Meanwhile, Board Member Alfonso Bince said he will request the governor for the provincial government to undertake blood-letting activity to support Red Cross. (PIO/Rafael Manuel)
