DOLE 6 gears up for Regional PESO Congress

The DOLE, along with the Regional PESO Federation and the Iloilo Provincial PESO, is gearing up for this major event with a theme Pinatibay, Pinalawak, Pinahahalagahan.”


Jalbuena said the Congress aimed to gather all the Local Chief Executives (LCE), Municipal Administrators, Sangguniang Bayan members as well as the PESO Managers and staff to promote camaraderie and stronger collaboration between and among the PESOs and to improve the implementation of the various employment programs and services in the grassroots.


It also aimed to capacitate the PESOs in their effort to facilitate the employment of the jobseekers and help generate jobs so as to help boost the region’s employment rate, he added.


This event will be graced by the DOLE Secretary Silvestre H Bello III who will give an inspiration message during the opening program on May 23.

One of the highlights of this event is the awarding of Outstanding Province, Local Government Units (LGUs), and PESO managers in recognition of their exceptional performance in the implementation of the various DOLE employment facilitation programs, specifically in the implementation of the Special Program for the Employment of Students (SPES), Livelihood program, and the Enhanced National Skills Registry System in their respective localities which contributed in the facilitation of employment of their constituents.


As part of its goals to capacitate the PESO managers, several topics were prepared for discussion such as the New Guidelines on Contracting and Sub-Contracting Arrangement, specifically Department Order NO. 174-17; Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act 10691 or the PESO Act and its Budgetary Requirement and Search for Best PESO; Labor Market Updates; and, the IRR of the Special Program for the Employment of Students (SPES).


To encourage the PESOs in leveling up their performance, there will be a sharing of PESO experience from the National President of the PESOMAP, Inc. as well as benchmarking of or field visit to the Iloilo Provincial PESO, national winner of the 2016 Search for Best PESO and host of this year’s Regional Congress.


Jalbuena is thus encouraging all PESO managers and staff as well as the other invited LGU officials to join in this significant event.
