MANILA, Feb. 10 — Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio “Sonny” Coloma Jr. called on government employees to keep striving for excellence and dedication to attain "harmony at work" in line with President Benigno S. Aquino III's mandate to give efficient and quality service to the Filipinos.

In his inspirational message during the Presidential Management Staff- Employees Association (PMS-EA) General Assembly held at the Presidential Management Staff (PMS) Building located on Arlegui Street, San Miguel, Manila on Friday, Coloma underscored the need to achieve harmony at work to help contribute to nation building.

"Paano tayo magkakaroon ng harmony at work. Dapat maging matapat sa tungkulin, maagap at masipag at higit sa lahat may malasakit sa trabaho at kapwa. Hindi natin tinatranslate in English ang salita na may malasakit kasi walang exact transalation iyon. Tayong mga Pilipino lang talaga ang nakakaalam nun," he said.

Coloma also stressed the importance of achieving "work, life and harmony" to be good public servants. "Our sense of worth is related to or dependent on the significance of our work," he noted.

"Ang importanteng elemento sa work, life and harmony ay tatlo rin – integrity, quality and tender loving care. Ma-achieve natin ito kung tayo ay integrated person. Walang pagkakaiba ang buhay mo bilang isang ama or bilang boss. Kung ano ang trato mo sa opisina dapat ganun ka rin dapat sa pamilya. Kung ano ang pagmamahal mo sa isa ay ganun ka rin dapat sa isa. Consistent ka dapat," he said.

Coloma also said that excellence in public service depends greatly on the performance and dedication of government officials and employees. He also reminded them of their commitment to take the straight path.

During the general assembly, which coincided with the anniversary of the employees' association, Coloma also congratulated the officers and members of the association and wished them all the best and success in all their endeavors.

Coloma, who served as Presidential Management Staff (PMS) chief under former President Corazon C. Aquino, told employees that he was happy to meet with them in an important event. He recalled the many memories during his time as PMS head. (PNA)
