The Civil Service Commission (CSC), through the Civil Service Institute (CSI), is inviting leaders, managers, supervisors, and human resource (HR) practitioners to attend this year’s virtual Public Sector human Resource Symposium on 14 to 16 September 2022. 

Themed, Building Resilient Organizations: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Leaders and HR Practitioners, the symposium will focus on the strategic role of government leaders and HR practitioners in building resilient organizations as well as in developing resilient human capital. Resilience is especially important with the need to overcome challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and adapt to emerging technologies. 

The HR Symposium will highlight the characteristics of resilient organizations, tools and best practices in building resilient organizations which will be shared in the plenary and concurrent sessions by international and local speakers. The learnings and insights from the sessions aim to ensure public service excellence and continuity despite disruptions 

For a training fee of PHP3,200, participants can learn from three plenary sessions, choose from 40 concurrent sessions, and earn a certificate of completion with 16 leadership and managerial training hours.

Now on its ninth run, the Public Sector HR Symposium is the biggest gathering of HR practitioners in the public sector. It started in 2013 and from physical gatherings held in Manila, Cebu, and Davao, it transitioned to virtual mode in 2021 in compliance with public health and safety protocols amid the pandemic. 

The Public Sector HR Symposium is part of the lined-up activities for the 122nd PCSA celebration this September. 

PCSA has a 10-year overarching theme, Transforming Public Service in the Next Decade: Honing Agile and Future-Ready Servant-Heroes, which reflects the collective experience of the government workforce in the new normal, and in pushing for digital transformation and innovations to uphold public service excellence and continuity. 

For 2022, the thematic focus 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 crisis in its readiness to accept challenges and ability to give continued assistance to the public.
