DTI bags excellence, merit awards in 2015 Philippine Quill Awards
|The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) won three top recognitions in the 2015 Philippine Quill Awards, the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Philippines’ annual awards program for excellent corporate communications, held last 17 May at the Marriott Grand Ballroom, Newport City, Pasay City.
The DTI racked up two awards in the Communication Management division. For the Employee Engagement category, the Department received an Award of Excellence for the Strategic Performance Management System (SPMS). SPMS is a mechanism aligning employee and organizational performances to enhance the performance orientation of the compensation system. The DTI was also given an Award of Merit in the Government Communication Programs category for its Prosperity Plan 2016 entry, which details how the Department maximized its resources to promote its overall vision of a “More Prosperous Philippines by 2016”.
Likewise, the Department triumphed in the Special Events category of the Communication Skills division for its System on Performance Rewards and Incentives (SPRInts) program.
The three entries described the strategies executed by the DTI to convey the core messages of its programs and projects to its key audiences. Various services, programs, and quad-media channels were utilized for effective communication.
DTI-Industry Promotion Group (IPG) Undersecretary Nora K. Terrado, DTI-Management Services Group (MSG) Assistant Secretary Ireneo V. Vizmonte, Human Resource and Administrative Service (HRAS) Director Joel R. Cruz, and Corporate Planning Service (CorPlan) Director Mary Jean T. Pacheco accepted the citations in behalf of the Department.
Last year, the Institute for Solidarity in Asia recognized the Department as one of the first Islands of Good Governance (IGG) alongside 11 other public sector agencies for its dedication to make public service delivery more efficient.
DTI also earned the Gold Governance Trailblazing Seal for all four stages of the Performance Governance System which attests to the Department’s commitment to exact accountability in public service by aligning its organizational performance with the individual performance of its employees under its SPMS.
The Quill and ISA awards recognize the Department’s efforts to professionalize its services and run side by side with the best in the private sector. Notably, the DTI programs that Quill and ISA evaluated were the same, each validating the agency accomplishment in the field of public service communication.
“Our three awards give pride to our staff, at the same time humbling our spirits that good public service can only be done by strong and unwavering commitment to do good and be felt so that we can make a difference,” Terrado said.
