The PRIME-HRM is a mechanism that empowers government agencies by developing their human resource management competencies, systems, and practices towards HR excellence. Under the program, the CSC assesses the maturity level of an agency in the four HR systems: (1) Recruitment, Selection and Placement, (2) Learning and Development, (3) Performance Management, and (4) Rewards and Recognition. An agency may be classified according to four maturity levels- Transactional HRM, Process-Defined HRM, Integrated HRM, and Strategic HRM.

The CSC also provides customized technical assistance and developmental interventions according to the needs of the agency. Agencies may then vie for special rewards and citations for HR excellence.
