Cagayan de Oro City — Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-X) Regional Director Albert Gutib, in support to the productivity month celebration, granted the attendance of 95 cooperative members to the Basic Productivity Concepts and Cooperativism blended seminar on 17 October 2022 at its Activity Center, Trinidad Building, here.

In Gutib’s behalf, DOLE-X Assistant Regional Director, coop’s Vice-Chairperson and Education Committee (EDCUOM) Chairperson Estrella Pahalla said the training was part of the continuing education commitment of the coop’s current Board of Directors (BODs). She underscored the members boost on their economic and ethical standards as the cooperative continues to grow.

Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB-X) Board Secretary VI and coop BOD lawyer Ma. Vergel Walag was the resource speaker. She presented the dynamics of productivity in line with the processes and mechanisms of a cooperative.

The EDUCOM, in Pahalla’s lead, had already conducted a pre-membership seminar in the first quarter of the year. The succeeding quarter focused on cooperative standards/principles on savings and credits by the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA-10). Target capacity learning for the last quarter is on the enhancement on leadership, managerial prerogatives, and the values of communication, identification, and direction/redirection for its Board of Directors.

Moreover, Pahalla said the trainings were conducted efficiently without sacrificing the financial costs of the cooperative. She encouraged all the members to continue their support through collegial cooperation and respect based on the mandates of cooperativism. She said the cooperative will always be a partner of the Department’s regional leadership to aid its member’s economic welfare to become productive and satisfied workers.

DOLE-X CARES MPC was organized on 1988 by a group of DOLE-X employees who believed and lived by the cooperative principles. It is duly registered with CDA-10 on 24 November 1998 and was issued a Certificate of Registration by CDA – Quezon City on 10 January 2010. It is also accredited by the Federation of Government Employees Cooperative (FGEC) and was elected as one of its interim Board of Directors and presently sits as one of the Board of Directors, as well as a member of the Philippine Federation of Credit Cooperatives Mindanao League. Its programs and services cater on savings and loans.
