On February 28, 2022, at 08.30 hours, Permanent Secretary of Labour, Mr. Boonchob Suttamanaswong, presided over the opening ceremony of the training program to enhance moral and ethics standards for personnel under the Ministry of Labour. Deputy Permanent Secretary of Labour, Ms. Bubpha Rueangsud, was the speaker and the executives of the departments under the Ministry of Labour joined the program at the Jompol P. Phibulsongkhram meeting room, 5th floor, Ministry of Labour. The Permanent Secretary of Labour said that in the current social, economic, and political conditions, together with the COVID-19 pandemic, the promotion of morals and ethics within the Ministry of Labour will be a tool to change the thinking process and good behavior of its personnel. The effort is under the concept of MOL Zero Corruption to cultivate moral values and good ethics and build confidence for everyone to consider the nation’s interests before the interests of themselves or their friends. It promotes people to work together to create new national goals, change the country for the better in different dimensions, and support sustainable development.
“I hope that from today’s training, everyone will receive knowledge and understanding following the principles of Buddhist teachings to be effectively applied in the performance of official duties. They can also be applied to a happy life based on four powers: Chanta, Wiriya, Chitta, and Vimangsa. These will help promote an ethical society from the family level, community level, and the Ministry of Labour to have good and competent personnel who are not corrupt or misbehave. Today’s training also promotes the working principles of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great, the most beloved King of the Thai people. It supports the principle of managing oneself, the people, and work, being a good example to others, adhering to and upholding the nation’s institutions, religion, monarchy, and the democratic regime of government with the King as Head of State. I thank Phra Ajahn Maha Sanan Khemjaree of Wat Noi Nang Hong. Thank you for taking the time to give a lecture to educate the Ministry of Labour’s personnel,” concluded the Permanent Secretary of Labour.
The implementation of the said project scheduled two training and lecture activities. The first activity was a lecture on “happy life, happy work” that was held today. The second activity will be the topic of “The King’s Principles for the Reign of the Lord,” which is scheduled to be in May 2022. The target groups are civil servants and officials under the Ministry of Labour in central and provincial areas. Each activity has 450 participants, training from government offices and broadcasted online via Zoom Meeting to Labour Offices in all 76 provinces.
