In line with the Bureau of Local Employment’s (BLE’s) long-term goal of permanently establishing and institutionalizing all of the PESOs nationwide, the Bureau has once again put its maximum effort and resources for the Training on PESO Institutionalization of the second batch of Local Chief Executives (LCEs) and PESO Managers last 10-12 April 2018 at Royce Hotel, Pampanga.
The initial activity started off with a site visit and a benchmarking activity in the Provincial Capitol where the best practices of the Provincial PESO of the Province of Pampanga were showcased.
The second day comprised of an in-house discussion to further enlighten the participants on the importance of PESOs, as well as to encourage them to institutionalize the PESOs in their localities.
Mr. Ian J. Ticar, PESO Focal Person of BLE, delivered the presentation on the salient features of R.A. 10691, reiterating at the same time that the PESO is an integral part of the rapid progress of the socio-economic aspect of an LGU. In the afternoon, Ms. Luningning Vergara, the Provincial PESO Manager of Pampanga, demonstrated the steps to be taken towards institutionalization in conjuncture with the strategies and approaches that she personally utilized in permanently establishing the PESO which she has been managing.
The demonstration was a great contributing element in inspiring the PESOs on working harder and convincing Ms. Luningning Vergara (the one wearing blue) of Pampanga PESO discussing the best practices of her office.
