The CSC was awarded with the Silver level accreditation under the Generation 6 Investors in People (IiP) Standard.
“When we command excellence in human resource management, we make sure that the Civil Service Commission walks the talk,”underscored by Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Alicia dela Rosa-Bala after receiving news of the accreditation, adding that,“The Silver level accreditation is a seal of excellence in organization and people management. This is an excellent achievement for CSC. It validates our commitment toward achieving our vision of being globally recognized as a center of excellence in strategic human resource and organization development.”
The IiP sets the standard for better people management. Its internationally recognized accreditation is held by 10,000 organizations across the world. The IiP Standard is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and a framework which reflects the very latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.
To achieve the Silver level of accreditation, an organization must have good practices in place that are understood by everyone, and is able to engage its people effectively in the implementation of those practices.
Part of the accreditation process is an online assessment where CSC placed 6th out of 530 IiP organizations globally subjected to the same online assessment, in the size range of organizations with 250 to 4999 employees. Meanwhile, CSC ranked first among 42 public sector organizations which went through the online assessment.
CSC’s people management practices were assessed based on IiP’s Framework comprised of nine indicators. These are Leading and Inspiring People, Living the Organization’s Values, Empowering and Involving People, Managing Performance, Recognising and Rewarding High Performance, Structuring Work, Building Capability, Delivering Continuous Improvement, and Creating Sustainable Success. Measurement against these people management indicators determines the performance of an organization and the level of accreditation achieved.
According to IiP’s Assessment Report, “What is strongly in CSC’s favour is a reputation for integrity and the experience of transformation already undertaken, and which can be shared with other agencies.”
