The Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) integrates and enhances the Personnel Management Assessment and Assistance Program (PMAAP) and the CSC Agency Accreditation Program (CSCAAP). It is a mechanism that empowers government agencies by developing their human resource management competencies, systems, and practices toward HR excellence.

PRIME-HRM entails greater engagement not just of the human resource management officer (HRMO) but also of the officials and the rank-and-file employees of the agency.

What happens under PRIME-HRM?

The CSC will assess the maturity level of an agency’s competencies, systems, and practices in four HR systems:
(1) recruitment, selection, and placement;
(2) learning and development;
(3) performance management; and
(4) rewards and recognition.

The CSC provides customized technical assistance and developmental interventions according to the determined needs of the agency.
