CSC Commissioner Plans To Ban Cellphone Use Among Front Line Government Workers

CSC COMMISSIONER – The Civil Service Commission may impose a ban on the use of a cellphone for the front line government workers.

Lots of employees already implemented a rule for the employees not to use a cellphone while on duty.

Companies prohibit or limit the use of the phone because it could be a distraction to their work and should only be allowed during their break.

Workplaces like call center operate successfully because their agents were not allowed to bring their phone to their offices.

Surely, a lot of companies wanted to have this kind of policy due to the frequent use of cell phones of their employees today.

Based on a report from GMA News, the commissioner of Civil Service Commission (CSC) Atty. Aileen Lazada wanted to prohibit the government employees from using their cellphones while on duty.

The commissioner clarified that they don’t have any policies yet unless the agencies of the National Government will start implementing the policy.

“Wala pa ho tayong polisiya in place regarding cellphone sa mga front liners unless ang mga national government agencies meron ho silang internal policy. ‘Yun ho ‘yung gusto nating i-set,” said Lazada.

According to the report, Atty. Aileen Lizada said if she’s done with her regional visit, she will probably suggest something to CSC.

“After my regional visits, I might come up with a suggestion to the Commission,” she said.

Based on the report, Lizada said she conducts surprise inspections to government offices in various regions to monitor employees who are not doing their job.

Lizada reminded the government employees to be competitive considering they receive a good monthly salary.

“Ayusin ho namin ang aming pagseserbisyo… Mataas na ho ang suweldo namin… Nakakahiya naman ho, ‘di ko nilalahat, pero nakakahiya naman ho kung ganito ang nakikita ng publiko sa atin…”

“Front liners, you are the face of the agency. Whatever you say, whatever you do will reflect sa agency,” she added.
