The Makati Public Employment Office (Makati-PESO) was conferred awards and recognitions by the Department of Labor and Employment-National Capital Region (DOLE-NCR) for its accomplishments in 2014 during an awarding ceremony held last December.
In a report to Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay, city personnel officer and
Makati-PESO manager Vissia Marie Aldon said Makati-PESO dominated Bracket 2, which was composed of local government units (LGUs) having a population of 400,001 to 600,000. Also included in Bracket 2 were the cities of Marikina, Muntinlupa, Las Piñas, Valenzuela and Parañaque.
“Makati-PESO got four out of eight awards for DOLE core programs. These are: “Best PESO in Career and Employment Coaching” reaching the highest number of participants as compared to the five other LGU-PESOs under the same bracket; “Best Peso for Highest SPES Placement” after placing the highest number of students in the SPES program vis-à-vis its target; “Best PESO in the Skills-Registry System” for encoding the highest number of registrants; and “Best PESO in Phil-jobnet Registration” after posting and registering the highest number of job vacancies and establishments,” she added.
Aldon, also president of PESO Association of Metro Manila (PAMM) and PESO Managers’ Association of the Philippines (PESOMAP), was at the same time awarded with an “Active Involvement Award” for exhibiting a positive outlook by bringing the best of the organization she represents, interacting in a positive and responsive manner, displaying high levels of energy and commitment and showing extraordinary support to DOLE-NCR and PAMM.
