President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. thanked the Filipino civil servants for their dedication and commitment to delivering quality service to the Filipino people.
In a video message posted on state-run Radio Television Malacañang on Tuesday, Marcos paid tribute to the country’s 1.8 million public servants on the occasion of the 123rd Philippine Civil Service Anniversary.
“Thank you for your dedication despite the numerous challenges that we experience in our respective occupations. Let us strive harder in achieving our united goal of providing a better future for our country,” he said.
Marcos also highlighted the importance of public service in nation-building.
“Public service is a noble calling. It is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of our fellow Filipinos,” he said.
“I urge all public servants to continue to uphold the highest standards of excellence and integrity in their work,” he added.
The President also recognized the Civil Service Commission for its steadfast commitment and continuous efforts to transform the Philippine bureaucracy into an agile and future-ready organization.
“My appreciation also goes to the CSC for the steadfast commitment and continuously transforming the human resource and organization of the Philippine bureaucracy. In this way, we will hone agile and future-ready servant heroes,” he said.
Marcos’ message comes as the country celebrates the Civil Service Anniversary, commemorating the CSC’s establishment via Public Law No. 5 on 5 September 1900.
The CSC spearheaded the observance of the 123rd anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service, in accordance with Presidential Proclamation 1050, which was issued in 1997 and designates September as Civil Service Month.
In 2021, the CSC introduced a 10-year overarching theme, “Advancing Public Service in the Coming Decade: Enhancing Adaptability and Preparing for the Future among Public Servants.” This theme reflects the shared experiences of government employees in adapting to the new normal and emphasizes the promotion of digital transformation and innovations to maintain high standards of public service and continuity.
This year’s Philippine Civil Service Anniversary celebration centers on the significance of nurturing dynamism among government personnel to promote sustainable management and reinforce organizational resilience.
