In his message, Director Trovela, who is the guest speaker of today’s forum attended by city officials, department heads and employees, said that the trailblazing achievements of Dumaguete City in controlling the spread of COVID-19 infection, solid waste management, personnel development and government efficiency deserve to be emulated by other local government units to enhance public service.

Remollo, City Administrator Lilani Ramon JD, City Human Resource Management Officer Dr. Dinno T. Depositario JD, Liga ng mga Barangay President Dionie Amores and SK Federation President Renz Macion.
Today’s forum is in line with the month long celebration of the 122nd Anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service this September 2022.
The Civil Service Commission introduced last year 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 government workforce in the new normal and in pushing for digital transformation and innovation to uphold public service excellence and continuity.
This year, the thematic focus is on resilience, which is part of building smart organizations and a future ready civil service.
