BUTUAN CITY — In an effort to assist the local government units in preparing a course of action to develop and establish their own human resource management and development (HRMD) plan, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in partnership with the Agencia Española Cooperacion para el Desarrollo (AECID), under the Strengthening Local Governments in the Philippines (SLGP) Project conducted an orientation on HRMD plan formulation held at the Goat2geder Hotel and Restaurant here.
The orientation, which was the realization of DILG 13's plan to conduct the said training to LGUs, was participated by 45 cities and municipalities of Region XIII under the SLGP program. The said activity is aimed at instilling the importance of an HRMD Plan in improving the productivity of LGUs in their delivery of basic services to the people to cope with the needs of their constituents.
In her welcome remarks, DILG Assistant Regional Director Lilibeth A. Famacion said Human Resource Management Officers (HRMOs) have crucial roles to play as they serve as the linchpins between leaders and employees in providing basic services to the public.
"Try to design reforms and interventions in your HRMD plan to improve competencies and as a result to serve the public efficiently and effectively. The employees of an LGU provide stability in terms of leadership change," said ARD Famacion in her speech.
She also said that the dynamism of the DILG in assisting the LGUs in capacitating them through the Department's programs, projects and activities have paved the way for the crafting of the HRMD orientations and trainings.
ARD Famacion also thanked the sponsoring project-AECID, in funding for the DILG XIII's capacity development interventions as part of the SLGP project.
During the Orientation, the DILG introduced the concept on establishing the state of human resource through job analysis, competency maps and HR systems check. The participants were able to identify gaps and proposed interventions in their HRMD plans. (DILG-XIII/PIA-Caraga)
