The Human Resource Management Office (HRMO) Unit of the College spearheaded the orientation workshop on Strategic Performance Management System (SPMS) on October 14-15, 2019 at the College Auditorium.
The activity was designed and implemented in response to the need for the synchronization of all major final outputs (MFOs) from the work and financial plans of the different units in the College. In addition, the activity provided an opportunity for the College to prepare the required OPCR and IPCR documents for submission to oversight agencies during the last quarter of 2019. The 2-day activity, participated by College officials, unit heads and permanent faculty members paved the way for the realization of IPCR and OPCR documents that emanated from the faculty and staff.
In order for the workshop participants to obtain a general overview of and a baseline information on SPMS, the College invited Ms. Anita T. Paredes, Civil Service Commission Provincial Director, as learning resource provider. Ms. Paredes stressed on the importance of SPMS for government agencies to perform their functions and duties efficiently and effectively. She stated during her lecture, “SPMS is a human resource mechanism to assess the organization’s performance management systems, strengths, and opportunities for improvement vis-a-a vis PRIME-HRM maturity level indicators.” Dr. Chakas affirmed this position when he said in his message during the opening program that the orientation and workshop is important in order for us to align our major final outputs to our VMGO.
During the workshop, the participants were divided according to the major sectors of the College. Within each group, the participants crafted their respective MFOs as basis for the evaluation of their performance and as basis to know whether each output or task assigned was attained at the end of the period based on quality, efficiency, and timeliness. Each sector was given an opportunity to present its output for critiquing. Ms. Paredes spearheaded the process of critiquing and it was also strengthened with the comments and suggestions of the participants. The sectoral outputs were then submitted to the Vice Presidents for consolidation and finalization.
During the closing program, Dr. Chakas expressed his gratitude to all the participants for their contribution to the realization of the activity’s goals. More importantly, he emphasized that in exercises like this, everyone should be willing to become vulnerable because only then are they able to learn from other people.
It is hoped that with the SPMS orientation and workshop, the process of evaluating employees in MPSPC will become more efficient, inclusive and responsive.
