The City Government of Isabela led by Isabela City Mayor City Sitti Djalia Turabin-Hataman through its City Human Resource Management Office formally launched the Human Resource Information System (HRIS), January 16 at City Hall Lobby.

Mayor Turabin-Hataman stated in her message that this is one of the things the LGU has been waiting for, a healthy and friendly competition among the offices to challenge each other to match the LGU’s speed, competence, and performance and emphasizing that the LGU’s most valuable resource is human resources.

“Ang HR natin, talagang nagpapasalamat tayo na hindi sila tumigil sa paghahanap ng mga pamamaraan para maayos ang kanilang sistema, ang kanilang pagganap sa kanilang trabaho,” Mayor Turabin-Hataman as she expressed appreciation to the City Human Resource Management Office.

In his message, CSC RO IX Regional Director Alvin Araneta expressed his congratulations on the launch of Isabela City’s HRIS, which brings the city one step closer to meeting one of the prime HRM maturity indicators.

CHRMO Luna discussed the key features of HRIS, which is the intersection of human resources and information technology via HR software and allows electronic synchronization of HR activities and processes. It was followed by SAA Alexander Garcia discussing the HRIS Module which is made up of six parts: recruitment, on-boarding and separation, personnel information management, payroll, time, attendance, and leave management, and an employee self-service portal.

Meanwhile, in his closing remarks, Vice Mayor Salliman expresses his support for the HRIS implementation. “Congratulations sa ating HR, napakahirap magdala ng pagbabago, pero mas naniniwala tayo na mas mahirap tumanggap ng pagbabago. Mabuhay at pagpupugay sa mga taong payag tumanggap ng pagbabago.”

The inauguration was formally marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by Mayor Turabin-Hataman, Vice Mayor Salliman, and city department heads. (Words by S.J. Asakil/ Photos by M. Santos, CIO)
