INTRODUCTION OF CSC
Good governance is almost always a contentious topic. The way public institutions manage public affairs and public resources is
something that draws controversy and criticism. This also concerns us to the very core. Why? As the premiere human resource
institution of the Philippine bureaucracy, our work cuts across human resource management, organization development, national
development, and anti-corruption.
Historically, the CSC was created to uphold a merit-based recruitment system. We should take this in the context of reversing the
growing culture of corruption in the colonial government, where positions could be bought and officials could be bribed. This means
only the best and the brightest should be in the government service. The rationale behind this is that excellent human resource equals
excellent public service. From a bureau in the early 1900s to a Commission in the 1950s and onwards, the CSC has assumed many
roles in the broad range of HR functions, all in a bid to rid the bureaucracy of corrupt and mediocre practices.
Today, CSC functions as the premiere human resource institution of the Philippine government. It also acts as adviser to the President
on human resource management of the Philippine government. As provided under the 1987 Constitution, we are mandated to
“establish a career service, adopt measures to promote morale, efficiency, integrity, responsiveness, and courtesy in the civil service,
strengthen the merit and rewards system, integrate all human resource development programs for all levels and ranks, and
institutionalize a management climate conducive to public accountability.”
Your theme, Ethics, Integrity, and Accountability for Good Governance, is always a timely topic for the CSC. I find it relevant because
we are always in the thick of fighting corruption. It is an uphill climb, as proven by what we see and hear in the media, in our offices,
on the streets. It seems curbing corruption is a mammoth task that cannot be neatly resolved like one would a simple mathematical
equation.
The web of corruption has different layers, many tentacles, and may spread like a virus if not contained. If we all do our little part,
however, we create opportunities to nip corrupt practices in the bud. People say it is a hopeless case, but I say it is a work in progress.
Let us not be disheartened by criticism. Instead, let us take our jobs seriously, and be responsible and accountable in fighting
corruption.

we seem to be more and more lax on what we consider as unethical. a lingkod bayani should be able to withstand temptation. We tend to say. political neutrality. says that ethics “refers to well-founded standards of right and wrong that prescribe what humans ought to do.

We owe it to the Filipino people to have integrity. In general. it is identified as “the branch of philosophy that deals with issues of right and wrong in human affairs”.

Sabi nga sa Panunumpa ng Lingkod Bayan: “Ang bawat sandali ay ituturing kong gintong butil na gagawin kong kapaki-pakinabang. and it is built from the history of your words and actions. We hear expressions such as “the integrity of the exam” or the “the integrity of the document”. Some people may think that they maintain their integrity by keeping their wrongdoings a secret. Your credibility can only be built over time. also known as moral uprightness and strong adherence to honesty and fairness. and was not tampered with or altered. As the saying goes. I hope all of us here will be part of the best moments of our government’s history – moments that champion integrity instead of destroy it. ginagastos natin. Our focus is delivering services for the benefit of our main clientele—the Filipino people.” Our government may be measured by the history of its words and actions. isinasa-katuparan natin ay pananagutan natin sa taumbayan. integrity involves doing the right thing even if nobody sees you. That is a challenge that I hope all of us will be eager to accept. ACCOUNTABILITY We always hear the phrase “public office is a public trust”. As much as possible. We are primarily here to serve.
