HRMO orients BUCS personnel on updates in human resource regulations

Thursday February 7,2019

Looking to orient the personnel of Bicol University College of Science (BUCS) on the new rules and regulation pertaining to human resource actions in the civil service, the BUCS Dean’s Office, in partnership with the BU Human Resource Management and Development Office (HRMDO), conducted their ‘Orientation on the Omnibus Rules on Appointment and Other Human Resource Actions (ORAOHRA)’ this February 06 at the BUCS Building 01 in the university’s main campus in Legazpi City.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) adopted and promulgated the revised ORAOHRA to govern the preparation, submission and actions to be taken on appointments and other human resource movements in the Philippine government.

To ensure the provisions of the revised ORAOHRA will be properly implemented in Bicol University, the BUCS Dean’s Office conducted the said activity for its teaching and non-teaching staff to provide them the understanding of the ORAOHRA’s implementing rules and regulations. It also aims to orient the BUCS personnel of important rules and policies regarding sick leave, leave credits, service credits and the like.

Starting of the orientation, BUCS Dean Prof. Jocelyn E. Serrano welcomed the invited resource person and the participants in her opening remarks. She was followed by Computer Science and Information Technology (CSIT) Department Chair and BUCS Faculty Club President Prof. Rodel N. Naz, who introduced the orientation’s resource speaker.

Dr. Jennifer T. Barrameda, Head of BU-HRMDO and invited resource speaker, explained the provisions of the ORAOHRA in relation to the CSC’s Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM). Dr. Barrameda discussed the guidelines set forth by the ORAOHRA in actions like appointment, promotion, transfer, reappointment, reinstatement, separation, and other human resource concerns.

It can be recalled that since mid-2018, BU-HRMDO had already initiated BU’s preparation for the CSC’S PRIME-HRM On-Site Assessment and the full implementation of the ORAOHRA, in line with the commission’s initiative of becoming ‘Asia's Center of Excellence in Strategic Human Resource and Organizational Development’ by 2030.
