Manila – The Institute for Labor Studies (ILS) underwent an on-site assessment for its compliance with Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) from October 21-25.
The Assessment Team from the Civil Service Commission-National Capital Region (CSC-NCR) was composed of Director Claudia A. Tan, Director Cecilia C. Villafuerte and Supervising HRS Ferlita A. Guillermo.
The Team started with an opening meeting on the first day to explain the objectives of the On-Site Assessment including the presentation of the Assessment Plan. The Team then proceeded to validate the evidence requirements submitted by the ILS in support of the Institute’s self-assessment results covering the indicators for the four core HRM systems: Recruitment, Selection and Placement; Performance Management; Learning and Development; and Rewards and Recognition.
The Institute’s On-Site Assessment is in alignment with its target of earning CSC’s PRIME HRM Maturity Level 2 compliance.
As part of the CSC assessment, agencies are classified according to four maturity levels: Level 1 or Transactional HRM, Level 2 or Process-Defined HRM, Level 3 or Integrated HRM, and Level 4, Strategic HRM.
To merit PRIME HRM Maturity Level 2, the Institute’s processes should be “guided by a set of defined and documented standard operating procedures that are responsive to the agency’s unique needs, and automation is being used to a certain extent.”
