BACOLOD CITY— Central Luzon Public Employment Service Offices (PESO) bagged awards in the recently concluded PESO Awards Night in Bacolod City.

 

Recognizing the valuable contributions of PESOs, the Search for Best PESO is one of the highlights and most awaited part of the 19th National PESO Congress. 

 

Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office No. 3 Regional Director Zenaida Angara-Campita said that 4 out of 6 entries submitted by Central Luzon were hailed winners with 3 of them enshrined in the Hall of Fame.

PESO Province of Aurora and PESO Talavera, Nueva Ecija also received special citations as top users and advocates of PESO Employment Information System (PEIS) in the 3rd class province and 1st to 2nd class municipality category, respectively. 

 

“Winning half of the eight catagories set by the Bureau of Local Employment is another achievement for our region this year. This feat won’t be possible without the PESOs’ hardwork and dedication to champion the implementation of DOLE-initiated employment facilitation programs at the grassroots level. Together with the DOLE provincial field offices and their respective local government units, we were able to build a strong team,” Angara-Campita said. 

 

Other nominees for Central Luzon were PESO Llanera in the 3rd to 4th class municipality category and PESO Lubao in the 1st to 2nd class municipality category.

 

All nominees were rated on the following criteria: core services, DOLE programs implemented, institutionalization, awards received, and active involvement. 

 

BulSU, Tarlac, Olongapo, Mabalacat and other national-level winners each received a trophy, a plaque for the PESO and local government unit, and cash incentives.

 

This year, the 19th National PESO congress held on October 9 to 11, 2019 is anchored to the theme, “Sa PESO may Disenteng Trabaho ang Bawat Pilipino.”
