DOLE-X capacitates 40 PESO Managers of Misamis Oriental and Occidental

 

Cagayan de Oro City --- The Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X (DOLE-X), through its Misamis Occidental (Mis. Occ.), Eastern and Western Misamis Oriental (EMO and WMO) Provincial Field Offices (PFOs) oriented the 15 Public Employment Service Offices of the respective provinces on 6 February 2018 at Function Hall 2, Activity Center of Tangub City and on 7 February 2018 at the De Luxe Hotel, this city.

 

“It feels good to see you participating and cooperating with us in this important event. This activity is significant because this reminds us of our one goal, to promote employment and alleviate poverty in the province,” DOLE-X EMO PFO Chief Errol Natividad said in his welcome message.

 

Meanwhile, the event was hosted by the Tangub PESO with PESO Manager Romar Megriño and some of its 15 managers from the LGU and academes; and 7 guidance counsellors of different schools of the province, while, 25 PESO Managers attend in Mis. Or.

 

DOLE-X Mis. Occ. PFO Chief Leonardo G. Rodrigo said, “PESO is non-fee charging multi-employment service facility or entity established pursuant to the new PESO Act of 2015 under Republic Act (RA) No. 10691, amending  RA 8759, otherwise known as the PESO Act of 1999.”

 

DOLE-X Regional Director Atty. Joffrey M. Suyao affirmed that capacitating the PESO as DOLE’s partner is one of the office’s priorities. He added that guiding them will create a stronger foundation in making PESO relevant in their locality.

 

As one of the highlights of the meeting, PESO’s remarkable achievements in the year 2017 were discussed based on the presented data during the Year-end Performance Assessment (YEPA) that was held at Mallberry Suites, Cagayan de Oro City on January 30 and 31, 2018.

Likewise, the PESO managers re-visited their commitments on employment and career advocacies, as well as furtherance of livelihood programs in their respective areas of jurisdiction. For an efficient implementation, the importance of liquidation of previously-released livelihood grants and the prompt monthly submission of PESO reports were also emphasized.

 

Discussions centered on DOLE’s new programs on employment facilitation - Philippine Talent Map Initiative (PTMI) and PESO Employment Information System (PEIS). These require good network with the social partners from the private sector (academe) and the business enterprises.

 

PTMI is a joint initiative of the DOLE and SFI Group of Companies focusing on identifying and examining current trend issues affecting workforce talent between the academe and industry. Specifically, it assesses the 15 skills of an individual, namely: (1) planning and organizing; (2) social perceptiveness; (3) innovation; (4) multi-tasking; (5) work standards; (6) stress tolerance; (7) self-motivation; (8) problem sensitivity; (9) creative problem solving; (10) teamwork; (11) decision making; (12) critical thinking; (13) math functional skills; (14) English functional skills; and (15) English comprehension.

 

Another point of discussion was the Department Order 175-17 on the new Implementing Rules and Regulations of R.A 10917 for the Special Program for Employment of Students (SPES) on its new guidelines, wage rate and mode of payment, now thru M Lhuillier Bayad Centers made easier for far-flung beneficaries.

 

During the MOPEMA (Misamis Occidental PESO Managers Association) meeting, President Maico Descallar of LGU Calamba excitedly informed, “I am happy to inform everyone that we are finally registered with the Security Exchange Commission (SEC) under the name “CAPESO MO” in acronym of Career Advocates and Public Employment Services of Misamis Occidental, and we are also thankful to DOLE-X Mis. Occ. PFO for initiating this endeavor.”

 

PESO Institutionalization was explained further encouraging increase in the province. PESO Managers were encouraged to focus on customer satisfaction along with efficient delivery of services in the locality. Institutionalized PESO promises improved services through full employment and equal employment opportunities for all. With plantilla positions created, appropriate budget and trainings will be provided by DOLE.

 

In appreciation, Villanueva PESO Manager Vanessa Ramos shared, “The activity is beneficial for PESO Managers given the opportunity to assess our performances, benchmark best practices and improve the way we do things. The capacity-orientation empowers us to implement programs at its best.”
