The Metropolitan Naga Water District’s (MNWD) year-end assessment and Christmas Party – a festive and fitting tribute to excellence and commitment to public service, and solidarity – took place Thursday, December 20, 2018 at the Tent, Avenue Plaza Hotel, Magsaysay Avenue, Naga City.
It was a night of celebration and recognition as it was held to appreciate the support and loyalty from MNWD’s stakeholders particularly the Mariners Polytechnic Colleges Foundation (MPCF) and the Rotary Club of Naga (RCN); tribute to Dir. Adolfo L. Olivan for dedicating 12 years of public service as a member of the Board of Directors; homage to the retirees and exemplary performances of employees for 2018.
Further, the event showcased an overview of the MNWD’s milestones including LWUA’s Big Brother Award, LGU Naga’s Commendation during the Peñafrancia Fiesta and Ginhawang Nagueño Award, DENR’s Saringaya Award, and achievement of ISO 9001:2015 Certification.
On top of these achievements was the awarding of the PRIME – HRM Maturity Level 2 in the Four Core HR System of MNWD by Dir. Ma. Dolores D. Salud – CSC Director II. Alongside this recognition was the announcement, exempting MNWD for an onsite assessment from the central office of the Civil Service Commission due to the substantial set of documents and evidences submitted.
General Manager Virgilio B. Luansing I during his speech said, “I once came across a quote by Jim Lovell that reads: There are three categories of people: The people that make things happen, the people that watch things happen and the people that wonder what happened. I challenge you tonight to become the people that will make good things happen for MNWD.”
Meanwhile, MNWD celebrated its 39th year anniversary during the Karawat 2018 Closing Ceremony held last December 7, 2018. It was another eventful day for the MNWD community as employees made an early jumpstart for the Color Fun Run at around 5 a.m. followed by a field demonstration in the afternoon.
December is indeed a festive month and MNWD just claimed it as described. It is definitely a glorious, grateful, yet humbling 2018 experience for the entire MNWD community. (Auria S. Gonzales)
