The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is encouraging government agencies in Metro Manila to adopt the Policies on Flexible Working Arrangements (FWAs) in the Government in support of the current initiative of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority to improve the traffic situation.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles said that the Policies on FWAs in the Government, promulgated through CSC Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 6, s. 2022, were established to institutionalize adaptable and responsive work schemes for civil servants to promote efficient and effective performance of governmental functions despite disruptive situations, including the worsening traffic situation in the metro.

“The National Capital Region has the largest number of government workers in the country, with 440,009 or 22.30% of career and non-career personnel. The prevailing traffic conditions in the metro not only hinder their mobility but also impact their productivity, particularly for those who commute daily. By adopting the FWA, we can not only enhance their efficiency but also safeguard their health, safety, and welfare,” he said.

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. led the conferment of awards to the 27 individuals and group winners of the 2023 Search for Outstanding Government Workers today, 14 February 2024, in Malacañang.

Together with the President during the awards rites were Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo A. B. Nograles and CSC Commissioners Aileen Lourdes A. Lizada and Ryan Alvin R. Acosta.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) announced that the Food Processing and Innovation Center (FPIC) of Davao leads the roster of recipients of the 2023 CSC Pagasa Award, one of the categories of the 2023 Search for Outstanding Government Workers.

FPIC-Davao generated numerous product concepts and prototypes, registered utility models, and served diverse customers including students, researchers, faculty, and food processors. It is also the first Regional Food Innovation Center established in the Philippines through the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) High Impact Technology Solutions program.

Two exceptional laborers are among the recipients of the 2023 Outstanding Public Officials and Employees (Dangal ng Bayan) Award, announced Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles.

Bernardino D. Dabuet, a Utility Worker II at the National Food Authority (NFA), will be commended for demonstrating professionalism and excellence in service through innovative and creative approaches, earning him the nickname "The Engineer" among his peers at the NFA.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) warned that individuals and groups using the agency’s name and logo without authority may face criminal prosecution and jail time.

The CSC stated that no individual or entity was given permission to use its name and logo, including the old CSC emblem, for any activities or online promotions, including but not limited to solicitation, recruitment, production of materials, and enrollment to review classes.
