DENR confers EAGLE Awards on outstanding field officials
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has conferred on six of its top performing field officials the “Environmental Awards for Governance and Leadership Excellence” or EAGLE Award.
DENR Secretary Roy A. Cimatu said that the awards, which were handed out during the agency’s 32nd anniversary celebration were to recognize the officials who had contributed to the agency’s achievements in 2018.
“Through the EAGLE, we wish to honor our field officers, whom we consider our frontliners in delivering our services to the public and implementing our mandate, as well as promote a culture of excellence in the organization and its leadership,” said Cimatu.
“The objective of the EAGLE is two-fold – to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of regional officials in delivering mandates, and to commend their performance and leadership,” he added.
Nominees were assessed and evaluated in two phases. The first phase was to determine the efficiency or effectiveness of the office in the delivery of services and results, based on good governance indicators using the Performance-Based Bonus system. This would comprise 75 per cent of the nominees’ overall rating.
In the second phase, which would comprise the remaining 25 per cent of the rating, would determine the leadership abilities of an official.
Leadership would be based on the official’s integrity, service orientation, ability to build networks, strategic focus, and managerial acumen.
