President Jokowi Launches Core Values of State Civil Apparatus
Date 27 Juli 2021
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo on Tuesday (27/7) virtually launched core values and employer branding of the State Civil Apparatus (ASN) from Bogor Presidential Palace, West Java Province.
The launch of the core values, that is, ”BerAKHLAK“aims to homogenize the core values of State Civil Apparatus in every government institution at the central and regional levels. BerAKHLAK stands for Service-oriented, Accountable, Competent, Harmonious, Loyal, Adaptive, and Collaborative.
On the occasion, the President also introduced employer branding of the State Civil Apparatus, that is, “Proud to Serve the Nation”.
During the launch, the President highlighted that all State Civil Apparatus must uphold the core values and have the same motto in carrying out their duties.
“State Civil Apparatus assigned in central or regional governments must have the same core values. Those who work as lecturers, teachers, prosecutors, doctors, nurses, policy analysts, administrators, as well as Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) officers, should have the same core values,” he said.
The President also emphasized that State-Owned Enterprises employees and those working in other institutions also have the same reference-value proposition.
On that occasion, the President reiterated that State Civil Apparatus must have an orientation to provide excellent service to the public.
“State Civil Apparatus is not a public official who asks to be served, who acts like the old colonial era official. It cannot work that way. It’s not that era anymore. Every State Civil Apparatus must possess a passion to serve, to assist the community,” the President said.
In carrying out their duties, State Civil Apparatus is equipped with the authority and resources provided by the state.
The President asserted that State Civil Apparatus must use the authority and resources provided by the state in an accountable manner with high loyalty to the Government, the nation and state, as well as maintain harmonious community life.
At the end of his remarks, the President underscored that capacity building and competence, as well as the ability to adapt to changes, are essential for State Civil Apparatus in the midst of a world full of disruption.
In addition, the President also said that cross-organizational collaboration is crucial since many challenges cannot be addressed by one agency, one region, one ministry or institution, or one expertise and one discipline.
“Collaboration across organizations, across regions, across sciences, across professions, is very important. There are always cross-sectoral and inter-disciplinary issues. Currently, the world has become completely hybrid and been more collaborative. There should be no egos, either sector ego, regional ego, and knowledge ego,” he said.
For the record, the launch of the State Civil Apparatus’ core values and employer branding was held coinciding with the 62nd Anniversary of Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform. (TGH/UN) (RIF/MUR)
