Experts on resilience to lead launch of the 122nd Philippine Civil Service Anniversary

QUEZON CITY -- The Civil Service Commission (CSC) invites all government agencies to join the virtual launch of the 122nd Philippine Civil Service Anniversary (PCSA) celebration on 8 August 2022, 9 a.m.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles will lead a panel of experts from institutions that led the way in future-proofing organizations and building resilience.

“In 2022, the thematic focus of the PCSA is on resilience, which is part of building smart organizations and a future-ready civil service. Resilience has been shown by the civil service during the pandemic in its readiness to accept challenges and ability to give continued assistance to the public,” explained Chairperson Nograles.

The CSC Chairperson shared that Transforming Public Service in the Next Decade: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Servant-Heroes is the 10-year overarching theme of the annual celebration to reflect the path the civil service has to take to build on the gains of last year’s modernization efforts in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the role of HR in building a competent and credible workforce in the new normal.

The virtual launch will start at 9 a.m. and will be live on the CSC’s official Facebook Page,
