Reorganization at Capitol eyed before 2014-A A +A
Saturday, August 31, 2013
THE reorganization among Negros Occidental Capitol employees is being eyed for implementation before January 2014.
Gov. Alfredo Marañon, Jr. said the reorganization is still on its finalization stage.
At this point, things are still very fluid, the governor said.
There will be more discussions to be engaged in as far as reorganization is concerned, among which, will be on the certain departments that will be merged, he said.
He said the visit of former Budget Secretary Salvador Enriquez, who heads CPRM Consultants Inc., to Negros Occidental on Thursday was for the final presentation by his firm of its recommendations on the reorganization of the Provincial Government.
Marañon stressed that it was only half of the economic enterprise department.
What is, however, definite is that it would mean hiring of more personnel such as doctors and nurses due to the expansion district hospitals in the province, the governor said.
About 100 more will be hired, he said.
Marañon added some positions will also be dissolved for redundancy.
The employees affected may apply for new job openings, if they are qualified, or avail of an early retirement package that will be offered, he stressed.
The hiring of additional personnel recommended by the consultancy firm will bring the Capitol employees up to about 2,400.
