Lingayen- - -Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. is determined to enhance and upgrade the capability of the new team Pangasinan for a functioning, high performing provincial government.
This was revealed by Janette Asis, HRMO Officer-in-Charge, as she said that the governor is focused at improving further the qualifications and performance of some 3,000 provincial employees thru the continuation of various human resource development programs which are already in place and by launching a new program approach to make the employees more productive and competitive.
Asis said that this year, the province will launch the Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA) with the creation of the province’s Citizen’s Charter which will serve as a service document of the provincial government featuring its various frontline services.
Thru this, Asis added, the flow of service within the provincial government will become transparent and efficient in the sense that the step by step procedure in availing certain services in a particular office will be publicly posted in building lobbies.
Target date of implementation of the ARTA is tentatively set on February 15.
The HRMO will also continue with its 5S program (Sort, Systematize, Sweep, Sanitize,Self-discipline) launched last year with the involvement of all provincial government offices and hospitals this time.
Under the said program, all offices are tasked to practice cleanliness and efficient records keeping. This, according to the HRMO chief will help the employees develop not just their skills but also instill discipline among them.
“Our office will also continue with the preparation and orientation of the Performance Management System and Office Performance Evaluation System and after this we will be launching the program,” Asis said as she added that each employee will be evaluated to assess their individual and collective performance, as well.
More orientation trainings and seminars designed to improve the skills and performance of employees are underway in coordination with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), state universities and other line agencies. (PIO/Ruby R. Bernardino)
