Monday, March 11, 2013
ANGELES CITY – The City Government here recently recognized the dedicated service rendered by its long-time employees and officials by giving loyalty awards during a ceremony held Monday at the City Council Session Hall.
Through its Programs on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (PRAISE), the City Human Resources Management Office (HRMO) identified 150 employees who rendered several years of service.
The awardees were divided into three categories: bronze for 10 years of service, silver for 15 years, and gold for 20 years and above.
The 150 employees comprised of 43 bronze awardees, 59 for silver and 48 receiving gold.
According to City Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan, it is only right to laud the efforts of the employees of the City Government for their unrelenting service to the public.
“The most important resource of an organization are the employees, that is why it is fitting to recognize those who completed many years of continuous public service to the Angeleños,” Pamintuan said.
The payment of loyalty benefits in the form of cash were given to all the awardees. Those who have rendered 10 years of service receive P10,000 while P5,000 is given for every five succeeding years after the 10-year-mark.
“In recognition to the continuous and satisfactory services, the city government deems it proper to allow the disbursement of funds for the payment of loyalty incentive to employees who have completed at least 10 years of continuous and satisfactory service in the local government unit here,” Pamintuan said.
He added that city employees and officials were conferred awards not only for their length of service, but most of all, for having served the city very well.
Vice Mayor Vicky Vega-Cabigting also challenged all City Government employees and awardees to go even beyond the service offered for Angeleños.
“We have to think differently about our work – It doesn’t mean that if we work for the government, all we do is wait for the benefits that we can receive. It is our duty as awardees to ask ourselves what we can do to further improve our services to our constituents,” the vice mayor said.
City HRMO Head Elizabeth Lagman thanked the city mayor for his support in providing incentives to local government employees for their work.
“The mayor has always welcomed the idea of providing incentives to deserving local government employees; this is why we, at the City HRMO are very thankful to him for always lending us a hand and pointing us at the right direction in increasing the efficiency and capabilities of our employees and officials,” Lagman said.
