Since the Regional Office is ISO-Certified, RD Jalbuena expressed his desire to streamline the processes at DOLE-NCR in order to benefit the clients and stakeholders, as well as the employees.  RD Jalbuena upholds staff welfare and development; and emphasized the importance of an effective and efficient employee welfare program. On this note, he stressed that a solid support to the employees in terms of their monetary claims such as speedy processing of Travel Expense Voucher (TEV), and provision of enough supplies and equipment, is integral in order for them to deliver the expected quality output.

He urged adherence to the Citizen’s Charter, thus, the “No Gift-No Bribe Policy” and “No Noon Break Policy will be strictly maintained in the Office.  

On July 19, 2017, RD John had his first Management Committee Meeting wherein he met the DOLE-NCR Officials and he laid down his plans for the regional office. 

RD John, as he is fondly called, started working with the Department of Labor and Employment in July 1989, when we worked with the Overseas Workers and Welfare Administration. He had a short stint with the office of Senator Franklin Drilon and was reemployed to the DOLE in 1999.  He has been in charged of different DOLE Regional Offices.  RD John shared that he had a pending application as Labor Attache to Vancouver, Canada, which was even put on hold because according to him, Secretary Bello told him that, “Sa CANA daw…”, as he has to fulfill his functions as the regional director of DOLE’s premier region.  “If you have concerns, feel free to approach me, my office is always open for you,” said RD John.
