The Provincial Human Resource and Management Development Office and the Provincial Administrator’s Office with the grace and support of Provincial Governor Imelda “Angging” Quibranza-Dimaporo conducted Psychological Test all members of the Management Committee of the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte on October 23 to 24, 2017 at the Mindanao Civic Center-Hotel Function Hall.
The test was given by Psychological Services Intermediary a private organization from Ozamiz City. Dr. Imelda Joromat of the PSI did an individual assessment through psychological approach to all 38 Management Committee members who have participated in the test. The test will then determine the potential capabilities of the individual participants and offer suggestions to further enhance these abilities.
The purpose of the test is to evaluate the behaviour, mental condition, and other personal characteristics of the employees in order to assist in making judgements, predictions and decisions in relation to their work. The PSI will then hand over the results after thorough evaluations with recommendations to the PHRDMO. The results will be the basis whether or not the committee members need more trainings and workshops in order to improve their performance in providing services to the people and as well develop the working behaviour of the employee.
In addition, this test will serve as basis for retention or dismissal, promotion and rotation of employees in terms of their educational and training programs and on-the-job situations. The PHRMDO and the Administrator’s office have long been planning this type of method in micro-managing the employees to help them advance their potentials, specially the strengths & weaknesses, and the behaviour of the individual personnel in their given tasks.
Dr. Joromat’s initial observation cites that the Management Committee members have promising results. In general the members are fit in their respective positions. The Doctor is optimistic based on the initial findings and looking forward to hand-over the results to Ms. Eugenie P. Pusing, Head of the PHRMDO for the calibration.
Provincial Governor Imelda “Angging” Quibranza-Dimaporo was convinced to approve the implementation of this Psychological Test for the Members of the Management Committee upon hearing the rationale of this activity.
This activity is one of the various programs that Governor Angging is continuously working on to improve the quality of service of the Provincial Government employees in providing assistance to the people of the Province of Lanao del Norte, “The Land of Beauty and Bounty.” PIO-LDN
