DOLE-NCR capacitates Manila Barangay staff on employment services
Providing relevant information and its dissemination to the partners at the grassroots level is one of the approaches seen by DOLE-NCR as it partnered with the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) of the City of Manila to conduct a capacity building on Basic Employment Service to its Barangay Personnel.
 
The activity, held in two sessions to accommodate the personnel of more than 800 barangays, was conducted in December 2018 and January 2019.
 
In her welcome message, former PESOPHIL President Elizabeth Alonzo and now the City’s consultant on employment encouraged the barangay personnel to be proactive in their perspective in promoting the employment programs and services to reach its intended beneficiaries. Alonzo reminded the participants that it is through the participation of the grassroots duty-bearer that public service will be fully realized. 
 
DOLE-NCR employment personnel were also tapped as resource speakers on employment facilitation and services: Ryan Roberto E. Delos Reyes discussed the mandate of PESO and the background and nature of employment services; Genevieve T. De Castro on the Job Fair Guidelines; Leila R. Legayo on the National Skills Registry; and Nicandro Estrella on the Anti-Age Discrimination in Employment to provide a holistic appreciation on employment.
 
Manila PESO Manager Aileen Galang and her staff spearheaded and facilitated the activity.
 
During the presentations, the speakers discussed relevant information on the labor market and other employment programs that serves as bridging mechanism that respond to the concerns on employment. Also discussed are the measures being implemented to sustain decent employment and the alleviation of the conditions of the marginalized sector. The participants expressed their profound gratitude to the new learnings gained through the activity.
 
The activity is in line with the new labor market information framework wherein the participation of the local government units, especially the Barangays, are given emphasis so as to gather significant information on the labor market for effective provision of services.
