The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has recognized the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 2 for obtaining Maturity Level 2 in four core areas of Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM).
These core areas include recruitment, selection and placement; learning and development; performance management; and rewards and recognition.
In her message during the recent awarding ceremony, Regional Executive Director (RED) Gwendolyn Bambalan of DENR expressed her gratitude to the Commission for the accreditation of the Department’s PRIME-HRM Maturity Level II or process defined in all core areas.
She emphasized that having an excellent human resource is an assurance of excellent service delivery to the people. “I believe in the power of PRIME-HRM to transform public service. We uphold innovative, strategic and more systematic human resource management programs to fulfill our obligation to conserve and develop our natural resources,” Director Bambalan said.
Under the leadership of RED Bambalan, the Department has crafted customized guidelines and mechanisms to ensure equality, diversity, fairness and transparency in recruitment, selection and placement.
Human resource interventions through learning and development program were provided for continuous improvement on performance where all employees are given at least one learning and development intervention per year.
The performance of the offices from the region down to the field and the performance of every individual is regularly assessed and monitored.
Through the rewards and recognition program, outstanding and high performing employees are recognized.
Aside from these milestones, DENR Region 2 developed automated systems to promote transparency and improve efficiency at work.
“We in the DENR Region 2 will remain steadfast in our pursuit for excellent human resource management to provide the highest quality of service to the public,” the regional environment chief emphasized.
The awarding of the certificate of recognition was held during the 2022 Parangal at Pasasalamat Regional Recognition Rites of the CSC in celebration of its 122nd Anniversary graced by CSC Commissioner Atty. Ryan Alvin Acosta.

It entails greater engagement not just of the human resource management officer but also of the officials and the rank-and-file employees of the agency.#
