While the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Central Luzon has tapped the social media in showcasing their various Labor and Employment Education Service (LEES) modules in a bid to bring its services closer to citizens, the provincial government of Bataan has also tapped the help of other active newsmen to help the provincial Capitol in disseminating of necessary information to the public.
“We live in a fast-paced information technology world, and we believe that social media networks such as Facebook will help us inexpensively to further enable our citizens to feel our agency through these modules,” DOLE Regional Director Raymundo Aggravate said in a statement.
Governor Abet S. Garcia has also appealed the local newsmen based in Bataan, to also help him disseminate the programs and activities of the provincial government of Bataan, together with the announcement of various job vacancies by multi national companies and other government agencies.
“Hindi na kailangan po na magpunta pa sa labas ang mga kababayan nating naghahanap ng trabaho kundi isang click lang nila sa ating jobs portal “1bataan” ay makikita na nila na mayroon palang nag aantay na trabaho sa kanila,” said the bachelor governor.
Garcia launched the “1bataan” in his bid to help his constituents look for jobs not only locally but also abroad. Aside from this, the public can also read news from the 1bataan.
According to DOLE, LEES consists of 16 animated one-minute videos highlighting various flagship programs of DOLE and its attached agencies including Tripartite Certificate of Compliance to Labor Standards, Occupational Safety and Health, Child Labor-Free Philippines (Batang Malaya), Single Entry Approach, Labor Market Council, Productivity Improvement Programs, Employees Compensation Program, Entrepreneurship Livelihood Programs, Skills Training and Development, Overseas Workers Welfare Programs, and Employment Promotion and Welfare, among others.
There are also seven animated videos that focus on employment tips namely preparing for a job, starting on a business plan, knowing basic labor standards, preparing for overseas employment, practicing on a profession, undergoing skills training, and concerns on overseas employment.
“Aside from Facebook, we have teamed up with the Regional Bus Transport and Operators Tripartite Industrial Council for airing of these videos on the television sets of their members in order to reach a wide range of commuters,”
