FORTY-EIGHT agencies joined the First Human Resource Summit on Strategic Performance Management System (SPMS) Key Players on Tuesday, November 8, in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Armm).
The summit was conducted by the regional government’s Human Resource and Management Division in partnership with the Office of the Chief-of-Staff as one of the requirements of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to improve employees’ productivity and efficiency.
A total of 165 individuals consisting of budget, planning and administrative officers, among others have joined the SPMS.
Lectures were delivered on the following basic elements of SPMS and its processes which include performance planning and commitment, performance monitoring and coaching, performance review and evaluation, performance rewarding and development planning and other pertinent SPMS guidelines such as ratings, alignment of functions and the SPMS calendar and cycle.
Leopoldo Roberto Valderosa, CSC-ARMM director and one of the two summit lecturers, said the success of an organization relies greatly on its human resources, thus, making them the most important asset in an organization.
“This is why the summit is vital to success of not only the individual but of the agencies as a whole,” Valderosa said.
“We are no longer just assessing the individual, but this time we also assess the organization because we believe that a certain individual could never be satisfactory or outstanding in his performance unless the organization itself is also (performing well),” Valderosa added.
Valderosa said the Armm employees and agencies have significantly improved their performance over the years with the help of enhancement tools from donor institutions such as the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), to name a few.
Valderosa said that the employees sent to trainings and scholarships abroad also prove beneficial in the improvement of ARMM’s human resources.
Armm Chief-of-Staff Rasul Mitmug, Jr. said the summit is a testament of the regional government’s efforts to continuously improve the performance of its workforce and meet international standard operating procedures among its line agencies.
Mitmug said this is one of the legacies that Armm Governor Mujiv Hataman seeks to imprint in his administration.
Armm agencies’ participation in the summit is expected to result in the refinement of their SPMS plans after Tuesday’s event.
A similar summit will be conducted for members of local government units of the region before the year ends.
