Through competence and commitment to achieve excellence in service delivery, the university had earned Maturity Level 2 in the criteria of Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management or PRIME HRM- the flagship program of Civil Service Commission.

To qualify for this award, the agency must meet the four core Human Resource Management (HRM) systems: Recruitment, Selection and Placement (RSP), Learning and Development (L&D), Performance Management (PM) and Rewards and Recognition (R&R).

On behalf of the PSU family, Dr. Dexter R. Buted extends his gratitude to the Civil Service Commission Regional Office No. 1 for recognizing PSU as one of the ten government agencies in Region 1 to grab the PRIME-HRM Bronze Award.

 โ€œTransforming PSU to what it is now, is hugely attributed to the HR performance in creating people-centered leaders who are responsive to the needs of the employees, productivity oriented who waste no time at work just to come up with a well-done output and passion driven who enkindle employeesโ€™ desire to improve oneselfโ€, stated by Dr. Buted in his acknowledgement speech.

Dr. Buted also mentioned that PSU is aiming to achieve Maturity Level 3 in PRIME-HRM and the Gold Award in Investors in People.

PSU is the only State University and College (SUC) in Region 1 granted with the said award at the 120th Civil Service Anniversary celebration and awarding ceremony on October 1.
