The Human Resource and Management Office and the Gender and Development Office spearheaded the orientation for the newly hired CSU employees last July 11, 2012 at the College of Science Education Multi Media Center. The activity was designed to help the new employees to face the challenges and to effectively integrate to their new working environment. Likewise, this was intended so that they can develop understanding to the standard operating procedures that are necessary to ensure an efficient job performance. Furthermore, it was initiated to provide a venue to motivate the newly hired employees to elicit the best job performance.
The orientation was highlighted with the inspirational message from the University President, Dr. Joanna B. Cuenca, that despite of her busy and hectic schedule, she was generous enough to grace the activity with her presence. She reiterated that the university instigates excellent services to provide quality education since the university delivers services that are necessary not only here in the province but foremost to the entire region. She reminded the new employees to render their excellent services despite of which office they are assigned to and what kind of job they undertake. Lastly, she also inspired team effort for everyone.
The success of the activity was also due to the effort of the speakers who were specialists of the topics that they discussed. The OIC- HRMO, Mrs. Merliza F. Libao, enlightened the new employees of the office rules and the basic rudiments that they needed to know about CSU. On the other hand, the GAD Focal Person, Dr. Lilia Z. Boyles, ensured that our employees will develop empathy to gender differences. She discussed the topic regarding Gender Sensitivity in Academic Service.
Among the important features of the orientation was the team building activities wherein the participants create a small group discussion regarding their best and worst moments and experiences of their lives. Hence, they were given time to get comfortable and develop confidence with one another. Ms. Ruth Sanchez also shared her knowledge in dealing with interpersonal relations. Moreover, Ms. Luzviminda Bajade, the Administrative Officer of the CSU Cabadbaran Campus was very generous of her time in providing information regarding the Code of Ethics and Standards for public employees.
The success of the activities was also possible because of the effort of the HRMO and GAD office heads and their personnel. These offices envisioned that this will be a continuing activity to all newly hired employees of the university. Likewise, the HRMO anticipated in providing the same activity to all personnel and faculty of the university to inform and to remind them of the trust and expectations of government service.
