The 1st Quarter Issue of the CS Reporter for 2020 is out! Download it here

There is always something about a fresh start that makes our hearts happy and hopeful of what is yet to come. The Civil Service Commission (CSC) shares this positivity with you as we release the first quarter issue of the CS Reporter magazine. Thinking of how we can give more value to our readers, new sections are introduced to accommodate expert opinion articles on human resource (HR) and organizational development (OD), how-to articles on availing various public services, and information on other topics such as health and wellness. For the first issue of 2020, we have included brief descriptions under each new section to guide you in your reading experience: Citizen’s Guide, HR Spotlight, Lingkod Bayani, Health and Wellness at Work, Outlook, and Unplugging Pinoy.

As the nation celebrates Women’s Month in March, this issue highlights women empowerment and mainstreaming gender equality, diversity, and social inclusion
(GEDSI) in organizations. Also, on the cover is Dr. Eva Maria Cutiongco-De La Paz, one
of the 2018 Dangal ng Bayan awardees who has made a remarkable stint in her line of
career as a woman. Be inspired by her story on page 30.

Our news section contains important updates on CSC’s policies like the revised guidelines on flexible working hours in the government (CSC MC No. 25, s. 2019), the 5-day emergency leave to support government workers affected by the Taal volcano
eruption last January, and the guidelines on COVID-19-related absences (CSC MC No.
5., s. 2020), among other updates.

As part of our corporate social responsibility, we feature the volunteer efforts of the CSC employees’ union, Pinag-Isang Tinig, Isip, at Gawa (PINTIG), in a relief operation done in Batangas (see story on Unplugging Pinoy, page 44). We also feature one of the beneficiaries of Pamanang Lingkod Bayani (PLBi) to inform civil servants that the funds collected from the Philippine Civil Service Anniversary kick-off fun run activity go to the families of servant heroes who died in the line of duty.

We release this issue as a tribute to all women and as an expression of our gratitude to all sectors of the society supporting women’s rights and gender equality.

We hope that the stories inspire you and that you may inspire others.

Mabuhay kayong lahat!
