Jordan, Guimaras – The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) - Guimaras Field Office conducted a Mid-Year Performance Assessment (MYPA) meeting last June 23, 2020 with the Guimaras PESO managers to discuss the Department’s updates, accomplishments and challenges for the 1st semester of 2020.


Mr. Richie G. Buyco, OIC-Head of DOLE-Guimaras discussed the implementation of DTI and DOLE Interim Guidelines on Workplace Prevention and Control of COVID-19. Buyco emphasized that the interim guidelines was issued to assist companies that are allowed to operate during the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) and General Community Quarantine (GCQ) in developing minimum protocols to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. He also highlighted the vital role of PESO Managers in disseminating the information to various establishments in the province, especially that the DOLE and DTI will be conducting joint monitoring activities.


The list of barangays in Guimaras which availed of the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program and Emergency Employment Programs (DILEEP) was also presented, including those with liquidated and unliquidated project funds. PESO managers were also reminded of the importance of the submission of liquidation reports in order for them to avail of other similar programs.


They were also praised for their efforts and contributions in accomplishing the targets of DOLE-Guimaras. “The PESO managers helped in reaching more than 100% of the target in Labor Market Information and Labor and Employment Education Program,” Buyco said.


During the MYPA, the challenges and changes brought about by the pandemic were also discussed. One of these changes is the deferment of the Special Program for the Employment for Students (SPES). Due to the restrictions imposed on those aging 21 years old and below, the SPES was deferred to 2021.


Buyco ended the activity by encouraging the PESO Managers to continue helping the DOLE in order to reach and benefit more stakeholders, despite the pandemic.
