123rd CS Month Celebration calls to foster dynamic servant-heroes in DdO

NABUNTURAN, Davao de Oro (PIA) - - The Civil Service Month celebration in Davao de Oro kicked off with a thanksgiving mass officiated by Reverend Fr. Fernand Bagnaan held at the Provincial Capitol Lobby,Sept. 4. 

In her message, Governor Dorothy Montejo-Gonzaga highlighted that with this celebration, it is crucial for employees to understand and remember the notable distinction between work and service.

She said "When we say work, it means you perform a task that is principally because you are being paid for it, but when we speak of service, you don't even need any remuneration, para ihatag ang serbisyo kay dili kana purely trabaho, kay ang pagpanerbisyo gikan kana sa gugma."

Under the 10-year theme "Transforming Public Service in the Next Decade: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Servant-Heroes," the celebration's central theme was "Dynamism."

This cited the significance of digital transformation, innovation, excellence, and the persistent commitment to public service, as conveyed in a virtual message by CSC Chairperson lawyer Karlo Nograles.

“I call upon my fellow public servants to live up to and embody dynamism, especially in the delivery of public services. To support our vision for 2040, the Civil Service must be prepared to meet the evolving demands of the digital age, fully embracing the shift from a transactional to a strategic mindset." Nograles said.

Guest Speaker CSC-FO Acting Director Leilani C. Parel also reminded fellow 

public servants that the primary objective for which they have been entrusted with their current roles is "to provide excellent public service and to bring about customer value" as they navigate their daily routines and responsibilities.

Moreover, the ComVal Capitol Multi-Purpose Cooperative (CCMPC) and the Provincial Employees Union of Compostela Valley (PEUCV) received P30,000 each in recognition of their consistent support during the annual celebration.

Gov. Gonzaga closed the ceremony with her assurance to always pray for the employees' continued enthusiasm and commitment to pledging good public service to Dabawenyos.

"After all, we know our role, our task, that this is for the love of public service. And when we render true public service, ang tanan katawhan will truly appreciate that our government works," she stressed. (PR-Provincial Government of Davao de Oro/PIA Davao de Oro)
