The provincial government of Agusan del Norte is set to release within the week sacks of rice to all its employees at the provincial capitol as their early gifts for the Yuletide season.
In a statement Wednesday, Gov. Dale B. Corvera said that provincial government workers will also receive sacks of rice on top of the bonus and cash gifts.
“The distribution of sacks of rice is a way the provincial leadership recognizes the dedication of our employees, especially in bringing our services to our constituents,” Corvera said.
The governor said all employees, including the regulars, job orders, the outsourced security personnel, and those in the janitorial services, will receive a sack of rice each.
The provincial government has a total of 1,674 personnel consisting of 726 regular employees and 948 job orders.
Corvera thanked the employees for their continued services to the people in the province despite the threat of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).
In October this year, Corvera issued a memorandum that provided for the work-from-home scheme as some of the personnel were also affected by the pandemic.
Despite the difficult situation, the employees continue to perform their functions and duties to reach out to the people of Agusan del Norte amid the pandemic.
“God is good to all of us. Despite the difficulties we have gone through, the unity among the provincial officials and employees remains strong at the end of the day. I am here to say to all of you, thank you,” Corvera said.
He also reminded the employees to continue to observe the health protocols, especially during the celebration of Christmas in their families and communities.
“The threat of Covid-19 continues. Let us all be mindful of these health protocols to protect us and our families,” Corvera said. (PNA)
