Health and Safety of Employees
Part of the Wellness Program of PDIC is the identification of the top four diseases prevalent among its personnel. The data are gathered from the results of the employees’ Annual Physical Examination. Physical and health activities are developed and undertaken by PDIC specifically to address the top four diseases. The holding of wellness activities and their relation to the top four diseases are announced through the intranet, the bulletin board and public announcement system.
Employees are made aware of incidents related to their safety and welfare with corresponding safety reminders. Before holding fire and earth quake drills, part of the preparation for the drills involves the dissemination of facts and statistics on fires and earthquakes, the designated employee-marshals, and exit and safety points during the drills.Addressing Concerns about illegal or unethical practices
The Grievance Machinery allows employees to convey to their supervisors their dissatisfaction with their work situation and/or performance rating. If the grievance could not be resolved from the lowest level, it may be elevated to the next higher level up to the Grievance Committee until a workable solution can be forged to improve the morale, and eventually, the performance of the employees concerned.
PDIC adheres to the Revised Rules on Administrative Cases in the Civil Service (RRACCS) and the Grievance Machinery both of which were issued by the Civil Service Commission, and Memorandum Circular No. 2012-07, issued by the Governance Commission for GOCCs which gives the Board of Directors authority to discipline, or remove from office erring Officers. Implementing guidelines have been issued fleshing out the provisions of the RRACCS and Grievance Machinery. Employees and third parties may freely air their complaints, which may even be elevated to the Board if the employee complained of is an Officer. Complainants are assured that their actions will not be taken against them, more so when formal charges are eventually issued by PDIC against the employee complained of as PDIC itself then assumes the standing of the complainant in the administrative case, thus insulating the original complainant from retaliatory actions. Administrative cases involving Officers and employees are regularly reported to the Board through the Board Governance Committee.
