sang magandang umaga sa aking mga kapwa kawani sa bangko sentral. Katatapos lamang nating parangalan ang ating walong kawani dahil sa kanilang katangi-tanging ginawa. Itong mga kawani na ito ang larawan at ehemplo ng katangian ng katapatan, kahusayan at pagmamahal sa bansa.
The Gantimpala Agad Award is given as recognition of our employees who exemplify and give life to the core values of the BSP – “Excellence”, “Integrity” and “Patriotism”. Those three words are not merely core values in the abstract, rather, they best describe who we are, what we are, and what we aspire to be. These eight (8) awardees are living proof that in the BSP, these three words are not empty slogans, but are real – values deeply ingrained in the basic character of our employees. These awardees therefore represent each one of you, our employees, who try to live up to these values in your ordinary everyday activity.
The “pamantayan” or standard of values refers to a body of traditionally established principles and rules governing behavior. Here at the BSP, we have a family that can be compared to a laboratory for rearing good citizens and active participants for nation building. The BSP family has a culture that our employees reflect on, understand, realize and assimilate. The values of moral responsibility has been imbibed by BSP personnel, which means to accept what is required of us, honor the role which has been entrusted to us and to perform extraordinarily well and make a difference.
This is the best legacy we can leave behind.
Bangko Sentral will continuously be on top of its outstanding performance if more employees will imbibe the core values of the bank.
Nawa’y lagi kayong maging isang huwaran na magbibigay ng magandang larawan ng Bangko Sentral at ng bansang Pilipinas.
Join us then in paying tribute to all the awardees. To the awardees, our congratulations!
Let us all give them a round of applause.
