City of San Fernando (P) – It is no surprise that the Provincial Public Employment Service Office (PESO) of Pampanga would bag this year’s BEST PESO award for 1st Class Province Category, which was held during the PESO Award’s Night of the 10th National PESO Congress held at the Taal Vista Hotel, Tagaytay City last October 5, 2010.
The Provincial PESO of Pampanga has remained a consistent partner of DOLE RO3 in implementing employment and welfare programs for the region. From the very successful Jobs Fairs conducted and facilitated for our local and overseas job seekers to the numerous livelihood assistance packages that have been extended to our workers from the informal sector in providing them the opportunity to venture into entrepreneurship and self-employment to improve their quality of lives for the past ten years or so, PESO Pampanga remains to be an active part of DOLE in quality service delivery.
Department of Labor and Employment Region 3 (DOLE RO3) Regional Director Ernesto C. Bihis; along with the Technical Support and Services Division for Employment and Welfare Head, Mr. Alejendro V. Inza Cruz; DOLE Pampanga Field Office Head, Ms. Rima C. Hernandez; and Provincial PESO Manager, Ms. Lunining Vergara, personally presented the said awarded to Hon. Lilia “Nanay Baby” G. Pineda, Provincial Governor.
“Nanay Baby” personally thanked Director Ernesto C. Bihis for bringing DOLE services closer to her constituents, and she even went as far saying that he should indeed remain with the Department for a longer time. On the same token, she congratulated PESO Manager Vergara, and the rest of the Provincial PESO Staff, for a job well-done in implementing the various PESO programs that truly has paved way for the improvement of the lives of the Pampangueños. In attendance also during the momentous event were PESO Managers from the different municipalities of Pampanga.
Aside from PESO Pampanga, City PESO San Fernando was also awarded as BEST PESO under the Component City Category. Meanwhile, City PESO Angeles was awarded as BEST PESO under the Highly Urbanized Category.
