During the later years of 1970’s, there was no Personnel Office created to take custody and to the implement a comprehensive and balanced personnel development program designed to raise the level of efficiency, effectiveness and morale of the employees of the province. The duties, functions and responsibilities of a Personnel Office was undertaken and contingent in the Administrative Division of the Office of the Governor.

To ensure the smooth transition of these offices to the PLGU and the additional personnel devolved including the Veterans Regional Hospital, the management created and funded additional positions to perform multifarious tasks wrought by the said provision of law. The increase in the number of personnel during the devolution mandated the office to cater to the increasing basic services needed by the employees.
