HAP – Honor Awards Program. Hero ang Public Servant.

The Honor Awards program is an annual undertaking of the Civil Service Commission that recognizes government officials and employees who have displayed outstanding work performance. The conferment of honor awards aims to motivate or inspire government employees to improve the quality of their performance and instill deeper involvement in public service.

The search culminates with the recognition and conferment of awards to deserving public servants during the celebration of the anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service in September. The awards ceremony is conferred by the President of the Republic of the Philippines as the highest official, or the Executive Secretary should the President be unable to grace the event. There are three award categories: The Presidential Lingkod Bayan and CSC Pagasa Awards for work performance and Dangal ng Bayan for ethical behavior. These are the highest honor a civil servant could receive in his or her career in public service.

HAP was established in June 19, 1959 through Section 27 of Republic Act No. 2260 as the Employee Suggestions and Incentives Awards System (ESIAS).  More than 50 years later, the CSC continues to hold the Annual Search for Outstanding Government Workers to recognize and reward the best in the Philippine government.
