The Civil Service Commission VI has recommended the conferment of DTI VI of the PRIME HRM Bronze Award for meeting the core competencies and practices of Human Resource Management (HRM) Level 2 Maturity.
PRIME-HRM which stands for Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management aims to elevate public sector HRM through levels of maturity indicators of the four core HRM systems – (1) recruitment, selection, and placement; (2) learning and development; (3) performance management; and, (4) rewards and recognition.
Level 2 Maturity indicates that the agency has a “process-defined” HRM – it has sets of defined and documented standard operating procedures, subject to improvement over time; it has goal oriented decision making; and, has some automated system but little integration of data.
On the other hand, “maturity” relates to the degree of formality and the optimization of processes, from ad hoc practices, and formally defined steps, to managed result metrics, and the active optimization of processes.
“It is noteworthy to mention that the Department of Trade and Industry Regional Office No. 6 is the first national government agency in Western Visayas to reap the PRIME HRM Bronze Award,” said CSC VI Regional Director Rodolfo B. Encajonado.
DTI VI OIC Regional Director Rebecca M. Rascon said that the recognition is an indication that DTI VI is compliant to the core competencies of HRM practices that elevates the standard and quality of services availed by its clientele.♦
