Benefits of Working in the Government
I think one of the prominent benefits of getting a job in the government sector is stability. The government will always be there to serve the people. even after private companies get out of business due to losing the competition and other natural happenings.
The Philippine government follows a certain salary schedule for their respective civilian government personnel. The salary rate depends on the government employee’s position qualification requirements, responsibilities, duties, and accountabilities. It is based on the Republic Act No. 11466 or known as the “Salary Standardization Law of 2019”.
For example, the job that you got has Salary Grade 3 Step 1 which is equivalent to Php 13,019. There is a high chance that your counterpart from other government branch has the same salary range as yours. I hope you get what I mean.
Security of Tenure
This is a big factor for those who are searching for a job. In the government, there is what you called security of tenure for permanent positions. You can work stay in the government until the retirement age of 65 in the Philippines.
Have the Chance to Improve People’s Lives
I have already mentioned this earlier but yeah, every day you can improve the lives of the people that you serve.
Whether you work in public works, hospitals, statistics office, cleaning the surroundings, taking care of zoo animals, you are changing, and improving people’s lives. Again, it is an opportunity that government workers can do every day plus they earn a salary from it.
*I hope this helps
