The 2016 election is expected to usher in a wave of new leaders in the bureaucracy. With these new leaders are new directions introducing significant changes in priorities, programs, and processes. Given all these changes, there is a need to maintain a healthy balance between continuity and change towards further enhancing public service. Organization leaders, human resource practitioners, and those directly implementing the change have different roles in managing transitions.

The Civil Service Commission, through its Civil Service Institute (CSI), in partnership with the Government of Australia through the Philippines-Australia Human Resource and Organizational Development Facility (PAHRODF) will hold an HR Symposium on May 23 to 25 at the Waterfront Hotel, Lahug, Cebu City with the theme “Managing Transitions through Human Resource and Organization Development.”


This year’s HR Symposium will showcase how transitions may be led by managers, human resource practitioners, and the people themselves at different levels.

The main objective of the symposium is to inspire participants to be involved by proactively managing transitions and enable people and organizations not only to cope with but to harness change towards dramatic improvements in governance and service delivery.

International and local experts in human resource and organizational development will share their best practices in the plenary and breakout sessions.

Interested participants may now register online at until May 5.
