Pangasinan PESO Wins Regional Award

Lingayen --- Bringing employment opportunities closer to Pangasinenses has been a thrust of service of the provincial government of Pangasinan. With its scheme in bolstering employment services for the people, the Pangasinan Provincial Employment Services Office (PESO) was awarded by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) as Top Regional Performer (1st Class Provincial Category) during the awarding rites held at the Camayan beach resort, Subic Bay, Zambales, January 24 along with the Regional PESO YEPA (Year-Ender Planning Assessment). Governor Amado T. Espino Jr. was recognized as best provincial chief executive with his efforts in making Pangasinan as number 1 in manpower development, while Ferrer was also awarded as Best Performing PESO Manager in Region 1. Only provinces of Pangasinan and La Union (which consequently ended up as 1st runner-up) qualified for the regional award, Ferrer said. Pangasinan PESO Manager Alex Ferrer who personally received the award from DOLE Regional Director Grace Y. Ursua, said: “the regional award gained nomination for the province of Pangasinan in the national level.” Pangasinan PESO was among top seven 2011 National Best PESO Awardees (1st class provincial category). Ferrer received the national award given by DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz during the national PESO Congress held in Baguio City, October 11 last year. Prior to the awarding, DOLE had a comprehensive review of PESO’s accomplishments in year 2011 which include: local and overseas placements, implementation of DOLE programs, career employment coaching and leadership and organization skills contributing to employment, Ferrer added. Under the administration of Gov. Espino, the provincial government had maximized the capability of the PESO to expand local and overseas employment opportunities for Pangasinenses. Pangasinan PESO in coordination with various recruitment agencies goes full blast in its international job placements this February with three major recruitment fairs, Ferrer said.
