Warm greetings to all public servants in this Yuletide season! 

Let us face it—it has not been an easy year for all of us as it was in 2020. We all thought that COVID-19 would pass by swiftly and that we would regain our normal lives back in 2021. Yet, despite the challenges and losses, we remain steadfast to our calling as civil servants while we also try our best to remain strong for ourselves and loved ones.

For this and for every small and big victory, we should approach this season with grateful hearts. As for the Civil Service Commission, we are grateful for every dedicated civil servant who tirelessly respond to the needs of the Filipino people during the pandemic. Through this Civil Service Reporter magazine issue, we highlight the contributions of outstanding public servants who were recognized as the 2020 and 2021 Presidential Lingkod Bayan, Dangal ng Bayan, and CSC Pagasa awardees. Their complete citations are on pp. 26-29. 

We also look back at the achievements of the Contact Center ng Bayan as it approaches its 10th year in the public service in 2022. Read about the CCB’s yearend statistics in the Citizen’s Guide section (p. 20). 

Moreover, we continue to promote existing advocacies that the CSC supports such as human rights, gender equality, disability, and social inclusion, and future-proofing the civil service, and explain their links to CSC’s mandate as the central HR institution of the Philippine government. Read the feature article on p. 36. 

Other latest news and updates on CSC’s programs and services are featured on the News and Regional News sections (p. 10). More contributions from civil servants are highlighted on this issue’s Lingkod Bayani and Health and Wellness at Work sections (pp. 44 and 45 respectively). 

We hope that you enjoy this year’s last quarter issue of the Civil Service Reporter magazine. 

Let us all welcome 2022 with a renewed sense of hope and commitment to a better public service.
