A meaningful way to herald DSWD’s 67th year

The DSWD marks its founding anniversary every month of January, but for Region VIII, it will have a special celebration come May. Announces DSWD Regional Director Restituto Macuto, this is to give more time for preparations, as the agency has to deal with more serious matters like the aftermath of Typhoon Urduja and now, with Basyang.

In the usual flag ceremony, the DSWD official always reminds employees of the Department’s new tagline – #DSWDParaSaNakakarami, a vow to our countrymen that the “DSWD stands for and serves the majority – not just a few people. He also regularly emphasizes the value of integrity in delivering genuine public service, citing this year’s theme – “DSWD@67: Walang Puwang sa Katiwalian ang Paglilingkod nang Tapat sa Bayan (meaning, true public service with no space for corruption).

From a dole-out agency to a development – oriented entity, the DSWD has, indeed, grown within a span of 67 years in delivering public service.

The recent First Knowledge Summit ever conducted in the region gave proofs to the initiatives and best practices that the DSWD Field Office VIII had produced all those years. It was a good way to start the new year and to give meaning to the agency’s existence as it turns 67.

“The Road to Excellence” was the theme of the summit initiated by the Institutional Development Division (IDD) headed by Division Chief, Lucia Balantad, with strong support from the Capability Building Unit workforce under Âńń Rîtžêl Çârrïllö Çârägøš.

Various programs and services displayed their knowledge products with utmost creativity and resourcefulness, in the event held late January at the Leyte Park Convention Center in Tacloban.

In his speech, DSWD Regional Director pointed out the need to “showcase initiatives and to promote a culture of knowledge.” He stated that knowledge and experience should be written and then shared and passed on from generation to generation in order to attain excellence.The DSWD marks its founding anniversary every month of January, but for Region VIII, it will have a special celebration come May.

“Power is gained by sharing not by hoarding. If it is not written, it never happened.” Director Macuto further said.

Training Specialist, Precila Docuyanan, of the DSWD Central Office guested the activity who expressed the overwhelming support of employees. She was also hopeful that with the Knowledge Summit, many knowledge products will be coming out and will be preserved.

Docuyanan also mentioned that the current trend is digitization. “Huwag lang e-display (don’t just display),” the official added.
“Knowledge is actionable,” she said, and compared with information which is not knowledge because it is not actionable.

In closing, she told employees – “buhayin ang leadership brand” (give life to the leadership brand), referring to the DSWD core values, “Patas na pagtrato sa comonidad” (Fair Treatment with the Community), “Walang Puwang sa Katiwalian,” (No room for Corruption) “Maagap at Mapagkalingang Serbisyo” (Prompt and Caring Service).# #DSWDMayMalasakit #DSWDParaSaNakakarami
