South Cotabato, Koronadla City- When you hear the term “public servant,” you might think of an elected official such as a governor or mayor. Actually, the range of public service is broader than this. Public servants include any local, regional or national government employee of a government organization.
It is important to note that servant leadership can exist at all levels of an organization. Some public service involves working directly with the people living in communities, while others may solely work with their teams in the organization. In both settings, public servants can embrace the principles of servant leadership.
In accordance with its constitutional mandate to adopt measures to promote morale, efficiency, integrity, responsiveness and courtesy in the civil service, as well as to strengthen the merit and reward system, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) administers an annual, nationwide Honor Awards Program (HAP) through annual Search for Outstanding Government Workers.
