The CSC does not prohibit the holding of Christmas parties as long as government agencies can assure continued delivery of efficient services.

“Christmas is the season of sharing and giving and I know that the best gift government workers can give to the transacting public is the provision of responsive, compassionate, and effective public service, not only for the holidays but throughout the year,” said CSC Chairperson Alicia dela Rosa-Bala.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) reminds government agencies nationwide, especially those in the frontline, to provide uninterrupted service amid the conduct of Christmas get-togethers and other similar year-end activities.

Agencies that render frontline services are encouraged to adopt appropriate working schedules and assign skeletal forces to ensure that all clients who are within their premises are attended to during office celebrations. # # #
