The Civil Service Commission (CSC), through the Civil Service Institute (CSI) will hold the annual learning event on Sept. 15-17, 2021. This year’s theme is “Transforming Government Agencies Into Smart Organizations: Honing Resilient and Future-Ready Public Servants”.

“This year’s symposium will focus on the strategic role of government leaders and HR practitioners in transforming government agencies into smart organizations, especially amid the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to adapt to emerging technologies,” it said in a statement.

During the event, local and international resource speakers will tackle various topics, including Digital Transformation, Cultural Intelligence, People-Centric Leadership, Total Wellness, Public Service Continuity, Data Analytics, Organizational Transformation, HR Transformation, Public Service Values, Learning and Development, and Future-Ready Leaders.

The CSC said participants can learn from three plenary sessions and 40 concurrent sessions, and earn a certificate of completion with 16 leadership and managerial training hours.

Interested participants may join for a training fee of P3,200.

The Commission said the Public Sector HR Symposium is now on its eighth run. The event started in 2013.

“From physical gatherings held in Manila, Cebu, and Davao, it now transitions to virtual mode as the country continues to implement strict public health and safety protocols amid the pandemic,” it said.

Interested individuals were urged to view more details about the 2021 Public Sector HR Symposium and register online from the CSC website at www.csc.gov.ph, or the CSI website at csi.csc.gov.ph (under L&D Calendar). They may also contact Mark Anthony Malitan or Merari Ordoñez at [email protected]
