Two of the Public Employment Service Offices (PESO) in the National Capital Region (NCR) were recognized again for exemplary performance during the recently concluded 19th National PESO Congress themed “Sa PESO may Disenteng Trabaho ang Bawat Pilipino” last October 9-11, 2019, at the SMX Convention, Bacolod City, Negros Occidental.

The local government unit of Valenzuela City as represented by PESO Manager Josephine Osea brought home the national Search for Best PESO (SBP) award under the Highly Urbanized City. Winning the award for three consecutive years has declared PESO Valenzula a hall of famer for said category.

During the deliberation held by the DOLE-NCR External Awards Committee for the 2018 Search for Best Regional PESO, the Valenzuela PESO exceeded the performance level based on the SBP standard criteria. They had also extensively covered many beneficiaries and stakeholders, and strengthened the tripartite approach of DOLE-NCR through effective implementation of DOLE programs and services.

PESO Valenzuela shared the spot winning in a triple tie with PESO Olongapo City in Zambales and PESO Cebu City.

For two consecutive years, PESO Taguig City had earned the PhilJobNet (PJN) Special Award for their effective and efficient program implementation and advocacy. PJN is an internet-based job and applicant matching system intended to help jobseekers search for employment opportunities and for employers to search for manpower.

Both the Field Office and the Regional Office who has jurisdiction over the winning PESO also received the same recognition. Taguig City PESO Manager Norman M. Mirabel received the award together with MUNTAPARLAS Field Office Director Leonides P. Castillon, Jr. and DOLE-NCR Regional Director, Atty. Sarah Buena S. Mirasol.

The Department of Labor and Employment conducts the Search for Best PESO to recognize the exemplary performance of the DOLE partners in the provision of employment programs and services. The nationwide search also aims to benchmark the practices observed and implemented by the PESOs worthy of emulation and enhancement in the delivery of services and realization of its mandate.
