Civil service eligibility for private sector pushed-A A +A
Monday, May 26, 2014
THE Civil Service Commission recently launched its integration project of the Career Service Examination as part of the requirements in recruitment in the private sectors in Cordillera Administrative Region.
In its vision to be Asia’s leading center of excellence in strategic human resource and organizational development, the CSC recognized the need to intensify partnership with the public and private sectors.
The CSC believed integration of the CSE in the private sectors as part of the hiring requirements will help in developing a competent and credible workforce by increasing the number of quality applicants.
The companies who agreed to support and implement the project can either require their applicants to be career service eligible upon applying or the company may request CSC to facilitate the conduct of entrance and promotional examinations through the CSC regional office.
Applicants may take two kinds of examination – sub-professional and professional civil service examination--depending on the position they would want to apply for.
The sub-professional eligibility can be taken by applicants applying for clerical, trades, crafts, custodial and service positions and the professional eligibility for technical, scientific, professional and executive managerial positions.
Companies who decide to adapt and implement the CSE as part of their recruitment should sign an agreement with the CSC.
Among the benefits of the agreement between the CSC and the private sectors include a national standard for employment; higher general aptitude of employees; advisory role of the CSC on recruitment, placement and other human resource systems; increased productivity and profits through the competent employees; and simplified HR systems and procedures.
Important area of the collaboration to improve existing company systems includes ARTA implementation, conduct of capacity-building programs and implementation of competency-based recruitment and placement.
On May 22, the Noble Trends Inc. and National Institute of Information Technology signed a Memorandum of Understanding agreeing to support and implement the integration project of the CSC.
Prior to the project, the Career Service Eligibility which is conferred after passing a CS examination was required only by the public or government sectors as primary entry requirement for permanent appointment in the government service along with education, training and experience.
