CATARMAN, Northern Samar – The provincial government of Northern Samar was recently conferred the Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy on Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) Maturity Level 2 Compliant award, the only province in the region to have won the said recognition from the Civil Service Commission (CSC).
The CSC conducted assessment on the local government units using the 4 PRIME-HRM indicators: recruitment selection and placement, learning and development, performance management, and rewards and recognition.
As “maturity level 2 compliant”, the provincial government of Northern Samar implements the equal employment opportunity principles (EEOP) on recruitment, selection and placement and other aspects of human resources whatever the race, gender, and religious affiliation of the individual including persons with disabilities (PWDs).
