Search for model PWD employee eyed
by Jordan G. Habbiling/ PIO

A city councilor has proposed an institutionalized recognition of government employees who have disability but are exceptional in performing the duties assigned to them.

Councilor Fred Bagbagen proposed an annual search for the Most Outstanding Person with Disability Government Employee to “recognize invaluable contributions of differently-abled individuals employed/working in the different departments and offices of the city government of Baguio including the barangays.”

Under the proposed ordinance, a resident and a registered voter of Baguio City can nominate any qualified PWD city or barangay employee.

There will be two categories in the selection, the city PWD employee and barangay PWD employee.

A search and selection committee will be created to accept and screen nominations.

The committee will consider the nominees’ personality, performance, and community development impact as parameters in selecting the three most deserving individuals under each category to be awarded the Most Outstanding PWD Government Employees and be given monetary rewards.

The committee will consist of the Persons with Disability Affairs Office, the City Social Welfare and Development Office, and the Human Resource Management Office.

Within 60 days upon approval of the proposed ordinance, the committee will formulate the implementing rules and regulations taking into consideration the qualifications, requirements, procedures for nomination, the manner by which the search will be conducted, and the awarding of winners, among others.

Bagbagen said that many employees in the city government and in the barangays are physically challenged but are competent and productive in their assigned tasks “despite their limitations.”

“The City Government of Baguio recognizes the role of differently-abled persons in the development of society and considers the enhancement of their participation in nation building through the institutionalization of disability-related activities as provided for in Ordinance 24, s. 2017,” Bagbagen stated in his proposal.

Ordinance 24, s. 2017 institutionalized the conduct of disability-related activities in the city.
