The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is spearheading the 118th Anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service with the theme: “Lingkod Bayani: Maka-Diyos, Makatao, Makabayan”.
As the premiere human resource institution of the Philippine Government, the CSC continues to respond to the ever-changing demands of public service by implementing human resource initiatives that are designed to mold servant-heroes and empower agencies. Every year, the Philippine civil service commemorates the enactment of Public Law No. 5, “An Act for the Establishment and Maintenance of an Efficient and Honest Civil Service in the Philippine Islands” on September 19, 1900. The bureaucracy also celebrates the achievements and contributions of the men and women in government who uphold the country’s societal goals and over-all vision. Thus, civil servants are enjoined to actively take part in this anniversary celebration. This year’s activities are meant to remind us of our important role in exemplifying love of God and country, building a citizen-centric government, and promoting malasakit in public service for our number one client—the Filipino people.
