The Philippine Civil Service traces its beginnings to the enactment of Public Law No. 5, “An Act for the Establishment and Maintenance of an Efficient and Honest Civil Service in the Philippine Islands,” on Sept. 19, 1900 which underscored the merit and fitness principle in appointment to posts in government service.
On the 113th year, the Philippine Civil Service remains as the backbone of government. The month-long anniversary aims to promote, showcase, and celebrate heroism in public service, and to highlight stories of triumph and sacrifice among public servants as reflected in this year’s theme. It encourages public servants to cross the line between being ordinary civil servants to being servant heroes—lingkod bayani.
This year’s theme is:
“Tatak Lingkod Bayani: Isabuhay, Ipagmalaki at Ipagbunyi”
