BACOLOD CITY, Negros Occidental, Philippines – The city council here has approved the P19 million budget for the Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) of City Hall employees.
The council passed the appropriation ordinance yesterday, 18 November, to grant PBB to its employees after the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) informed the city mayor that Bacolod City is eligible to grant the 2019 PBB.
PBB is an incentive mechanism reward given to officials and employees of Local Government Units (LGUs) for good governance and meritorious performance.
Bacolod City became a national awardee of the 2019 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) Award from the DILG in November last year.
Also in December last year, Bacolod was the overall “Best Performing LGU – City Category in Western Visayas” at the awarding ceremony of the DILG 2019 Excellence in Local Governance Awards (EXCELL), the press release said.
Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia said “The SGLG is our guidance, recognition, reward and inspiration. This also raises our standards in local governance and we now have that additional moral obligation to sustain and maintain our brand of local governance.”
