CatSU-HRMS conducts Orientation-Seminar for New Employees


The Catanduanes State University (CatSU) through its Human Resource Management Services headed by Ma. Sionne May T. Crispino conducted the Orientation-Seminar on newly appointed employees including personnel hired under Contract of Service and Job Order on March 16-19, 2021 at CatSU Accreditation Center.

The activity was graced by Dr. Freddie T. Bernal, CatSU Officer-in-Charge President and CHED RO-V Regional Director. In his speech, he emphasized the qualities and traits that an employee should possess when entering the public service. Dr. Bernal further challenged them to be better public servants who can contribute to the productivity and overall success of the institution. He also hoped that of all things considered they should especially enjoy their stay in the University as government employees and continue to strive harder to achieve professional development and personal growth.

Atty. Gregorio M. Sarmiento Jr., Vice-President for Administrative and Financial Affairs and Chief Administrative Officer discussed about the institution’s VMGO, Core Values, and Organizational Structure of the University so as to give the employees a good glance of the institution. He also talked about the rules on Administrative Cases in the Civil Service where he gave emphasis on the legal principle, ‘Ignorance of the law, excuses no one’, where government employees are expected to know what the law says.
Meanwhile, Atty. Nikko Rey Aicetel T. Manlangit-Santelices, Attorney IV-Legal Office discussed topics on Republic Act No. 6713 (Code of Conduct & Ethical Standards) and Data Privacy Act wherein she reminded everyone that as government employees they should always be wary about all the data they share to anyone because as public servants we all have the duties to protect the personal information of the clients and also of the institution.
Dr. Erlinda F. Tabor, Quality Assurance Officer, on the other hand, discussed the topics on 7s Good Workplace Organization, Anti-Violence Against Women (Anti-VAWC), Magna Carta of Women, Anti-Sexual Harassment and Safe Spaces. She mentioned that everyone, both male and female, especially those in the workforce, should always know how to protect themselves as employees by being fully aware of their rights.

Vice-President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Maria S. Tugano and Ma. Sionne May T. Crispino, AO-V, HRM Services, likewise discussed topics on the personal and professional qualities of good employees, office decorum, government working hours, appointment (probationary period) included in the SPMS, leave laws and other matters.

The four-day orientation-seminar aimed to help new employees be familiarized of CatSU rules and regulations defined by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) Polices as well as to help them further understand the commitment and job performance expected from them by the institution. #GZafe
