Cagayan de Oro City --- Some 96 Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Managers convened themselves in support to the employment facilitation of Northern Mindanao with the conduct of its Year-End Planning and Assessment (YEPA), thru the facilitation of the Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X (DOLE-X) on 29 January 2018 at the Mallberry Suites, Lim Ket Kai Center, this city.

 

In the forefront is the Regional PESO League President Herculano Ronolo, also the PESO Manager of Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. He strongly advocated to his fellow PESO Managers to be one, strong, and united together, in line with the theme of this activity, “Trabaho, Negosyo at Kabuhayan: Matatag na PESO Kaagapay ng Bawat Pilipino.” He formidably believes that the theme puts the PESO as the effective promoters and advocates in conveying to every worker and job earner the employment facilitation of the government. Ronolo motivated everyone not to be “boxed” in an idea to solve a problem and to build stronger relationships and breaking every barrier, if there are, in order to boost the employment services in the grassroots of their respective localities.

 

Likewise, DOLE-X OIC-Assistant Regional Director Estrella U. Pahalla commended the support of the attendees, “I can see that everyone is excited to be part of this endeavor, an impetus that you love what you are doing.” She highlighted that all things done in the government are in collaboration. As substantiated from the validated employment reports from the DOLE Central Office, the region accomplished 82% placement rate for the year, as well as the third in rank on the PESO’s collaboration with the livelihood programs for the workers in the informal sector. These developments show that there is a strong commitment from the PESO.

 

Director Pahalla further said, “The essence is not in the figures alone, but in making the public aware that the government through DOLE and the PESO will always be together side by side in improving their lives through employment.”  

 

For CY 2018, employment policy direction forecasts an increased rate in youth assisted programs particularly the Special Program for the Employment of Students (SPES) wherein 7-8% of the beneficiaries to graduate tech-voc or college courses and the JobStart Philippines with a 76% placement rate.

Suyao commended the active and “working” PESOs through plaques of recognition with their unceasing support: (1) Component City – Oroquieta; Malaybalay; Gingoog; El Salvador; (2) 5th to 6th Class Municipality – Gitagum; Laguindingan; (3) 3rd to 4th Class Municipality – Opol; Dangcagan; Magsaysay; Mambajao; (4) Highly Urbanized City – Cagayan de Oro and Iligan; (5) 1st to 2nd Class Municipality – Manolo Fortich; Quezon; Lugait; Claveria.

Claveria, Mis. Or. PESO Manager Elaine Edio was in good praises with the two-day activity from the venue to the speakers, especially in formulating graphs in presenting their locality’s Labor Market Information. “The inputs we gained, per my experience, is indeed very helpful to us in marketing employment in our municipality,” she expressed.

 

Director Suyao was grateful to hear the positive feedbacks. “This is our [DOLE] goal – to give a different PESO activity – as our way of thanking all the PESO Managers of their efforts and accomplishments, as the forerunners in implementing the employment facilitation programs of the Department,” Suyao appreciated. He further motivated, especially the finalists, for the Best PESO search nationwide. He also explained that the activity not only assessed their accomplishments but also capacitated them on how to present economical/labor data, for the PESO to be more relevant in the local governance and at the same time, help them in documenting their achievements as a requirement for the Best PESO search.

 

Moreover, Director Suyao thanked Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar S. Moreno for hosting the event and encouraged everyone to join the midyear assessment for CY 2018.
