There is now a unified corpus of official Catholic teaching that focuses the resources of moral theology and natural law theory on important social issues of the day. The rights of the employee and the themes of employee ownership and participation have been central and recurring themes as this body of teaching has developed. This description and explanation of the essential elements of Catholic Social Thought and its relationship to these themes helps the reader think about the place of the corporation in the economy and whether British and European corporate governance and labour law do what they should to put the employee at the centre of corporate governance.

This enduringly profound treatise was first used by the students of Aristotle's famous Athenian school, This enduringly profound treatise was first used by the students of Aristotle's famous Athenian school, the Lyceum; since then it has exercised a lasting effect on Western philosophy and continues to resonate for modern readers. Needless to say, we will always be answerable to our own actions.
When that time comes, I hope we will be able to account for what we have done truthfully and straightforwardly. Now that I have briefly discussed ethics, integrity, and accountability, let me share with you what the CSC has been doing to create a working environment that promotes these three principles. The basic idea we have at the CSC is that good people equals good governance.
After streamlining our programs, we have introduced five 5 HR initiatives. We also have the Competency-Based Recruitment and Qualification System or CBRQS that gauges both applicants and employees not just on the basis of their education, experience, training, and eligibility, but on a set of required competencies as well. Through the Leadership and Coaching Program or LCP that we have, we adopt the coaching approach to help our human resource get over hurdles and challenges in their career.
Meanwhile, the Competency-Based Learning and Development Program or CBLDP directly addresses the problem of competency gaps through trainings and HR interventions, preparing individuals as their agencies upgrade their maturity level. Lastly, we have the Strategic Performance Management System or SPMS — a performance evaluation system that links individual performance to organizational performance. Aside from offering the HR initiatives, we have also been running several programs that address other problems in good governance.
Under this law, we battle red tape by checking government service offices and evaluating how fast and efficient they are in responding to the needs of their clients.

We remain vigilant in ensuring compliance with the law through monitoring and evaluation mechanisms. One is the ARTA Watch — our surprise visit to government service offices nationwide to check how their frontline transactions are faring. I, together with Commissioners Robert S.

ARTA Watch reports have helped us greatly in determining the areas for improvement in terms of frontline services. Since frontline transactions are the very basic touchpoint of government and its citizens, we consider this a most important site to focus on. Here is where the principles of ethics, accountability, and integrity are played out. More importantly, this is where we have the best opportunity to stop corruption.
Kaya binabantayan naming maigi ang mga frontline services. We also focus on discipline and rewards as a means to mold a competent and highly motivated workforce. As a quasi-judicial body, the CSC hears administrative cases. This means disciplinary actions are efficiently imposed on erring officials and employees.
As justice is served, ethics, integrity, and accountability are preserved. We also released the new Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth or SALN form after a series of consultations with various government offices and employee groups. The new form is simpler in order to avoid confusion, and there are corresponding guidelines on how one should fill out the form. We continue to recognize the importance of the SALN as a tool to deter corruption in government.
Aside from promoting discipline, we continue to enhance our recognition programs. The award categories under HAP are the highest recognition that state workers can get throughout their career. We also have the Pamanang Lingkod Bayan or PLBi program, through which we honor those who have offered their lives for the service of the Filipino people. More than just recognizing the many heroic and inspiring men and women in government who personify the spirit of public service, the Commission also sees the need to acknowledge those civilian public servants who risked their lives, died while in the pursuit of their respective functions, or were killed in the line of duty.
Under the PLBi, we are able to give cash assistance and scholarship grants to their loved ones left behind.

Since development banking is especially needed in developing countries like ours, you have the impetus for exercising ethics, integrity, and accountability in the name of good governance. I have explained in bold strokes how we uphold the principles of good governance. However, this is not something that only one institution can shoulder. If it takes a whole army to fan the flames of corruption, then it will also take a whole army to quench it. Kaagapay namin ang bawat ahensya, kasama na ang DBP, sa pagtaguyod ng isang matatag, tapat, at epektibong gobyerno na mapagkakatiwalaan ng taumbayan.
I hope everyone here in corporate governance will likewise be committed in this goal. I look forward to hearing wonderful achievements of the DBP in the future, but most importantly, how it has committed to good governance. Ciara Guzman, OGE. This session will help ethics officials step back a bit from the minimum regulatory training requirements, examine their true training objectives, and look at ethics training from a different perspective: that of ethics training as education and professional development, not merely technical instruction or the minimal fulfillment of a requirement.
The session will include a discussion of what really works to accomplish a true understanding of ethics among employees, provide dozens of immediately useful teaching tips and exercises for trainers and ethics officials, and review some of the collateral benefits of a professional development ethics program. Greg Weinman, United States Mint. Ethics for an Outsourced Government. While the Government has an extensive array of statutes and regulations imposing ethics restrictions on Government employees, the ethics of contractor personnel are largely unregulated.
A few agencies have adopted regulations imposing Government ethics standards on some of their contractor personnel, and other agencies impose such standards through contract clauses.
This session will explain how agencies have approached this issue and describe the recent recommendation from the Administrative Conference of the United States that the Government increase its regulation of contractor personnel ethics. The session will place the conflicts of interest regimen in a historic context. The presentation will provide an informative awareness that many of the current ethics rules are not merely the results of then-contemporaneous events — such as the Hall Carbine Affair , or the Teapot Dome or Watergate scandals — but were established after much consideration and deliberation by both the legislative and executive branches, dating back to the earliest years of the republic, as necessitated by an evolving and growing system of government.
Many practitioners in the ethics community are familiar with the current ethics regime, but may find it interesting to learn just how long and difficult in the making were these rules. Don Fox, OGE. Emory Rounds, OGE. Details, Details, Details! The panelists will discuss the most common ethics implications of details in detail! Arthur A. Lopez, OGE.

Agency compliance with the law is at the heart of organizational integrity and is a shared responsibility. It is incorporated in our Oath of Office and is quite simply a baseline expectation of the notion that public office is a public trust. A program to prevent and detect organizational non-compliance is a core element of modern corporate governance. The RCGCE was established to advance the application of effective ethics and compliance program principles as an element of public governance at the Federal, state and local levels.
