The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board – National Capital Region (RTWPB-NCR) conducted series of learning sessions at the start of the year that aims to foster productivity and business development across Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) throughout Metro Manila.

The webinars centered on modules such as 7s of Good Housekeeping: Setting the Pathway to A Safe Workplace in the Period of Pandemic; Work Ethics of a Productive Worker; Improving Productivity through Social Media Marketing; and Work Life Balance: Productive Work from Home.

As the nation heads into another year during a pandemic, local businesses and the employment sector collectively look to rejuvenate the Filipino workforce after series of setbacks brought about by the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis. Underscoring the effort to enhance existing business processes through informative training activities, RTWPB-NCR held virtual Zoom sessions on January 20, 21, 25, and 28, 2022 that were actively met with enthusiasm from various MSME participants in the region as shown by their active participation in the flow of information throughout the event.

Some of the topics focused on key areas about good housekeeping and workplace organization. Luchie Atienza discussed safer business practices by applying a seven-step systematic approach that optimizes the physical workspace.

Furthermore, a session on work ethics led by Ran Itutud highlighted strategies in building an ethical approach to job performance as well as blending into company culture.

These topics gained positive feedback from the participants as well as the learning session that discussed about utilizing social media as a productivity tool to expand the audience reach of businesses in which Ivann Arintok served as the resource person.

In addition, Bernalyn Dela Cruz provided an in-depth discussion about the link between work-life balance and productivity, and how these shape their respective industries as a whole.

The learning sessions conducted by the RTWPB-NCR team proved to be a great start to assist MSMEs in the region, boost their workplace productivity commitment, and promote holistic approach towards enterprise excellence.
