DOLE-RO8 to launch online programs, services

Tacloban City – Director Yahya A. Centi announced during the Mid-Year Performance Assessment and Planning Exercises held on 27 July 2020 that the Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office 8 will officially launch its online programs and services by August 2020. 

Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Director Centi has already placed as one of his priorities the development of online programs and services for the benefit of the clients in Region 8.

During the one-day mid-year assessment with the theme “Go Digital”, Dir. Centi underscored the importance of using online platforms in delivering the programs and services of the department especially during this time of global pandemic.

“Recognizing the new normal where the online platforms prevail over face-to-face transactions in order to combat the spread of COVID-19, I believe this is high time to launch our programs and services in digital way”, said Centi.

Dir. Centi likewise urged all the heads of field offices to personally know the systems for better appreciation and effective implementation.*

“I am directing all employees especially the heads of offices to get familiar with our systems. I know at first there will be adjustment, but let us all be one in this undertaking for the ultimate benefit of the clients we serve as well as to ensure our safety during these times of uncertainties brought by COVID”, Centi ended.

A total of ten (10) online programs were being developed by DOLE RO8 through its Information Systems Analyst, Mr. Peter Philip Pates, who reported that seven of these programs can already be launched next month after a successful round of testing among its field offices.

Online systems for the following programs and services will be officially launched: Construction Safety & Health Program (CSHP), Special Program for Employment of Students (SPES), Rule 1020/Registration of Establishments, Job Fair, Appointment System, DOLE Certifications, and DOLE Helpdesk.  

A walkthrough on the said systems for heads of offices and field officers will be conducted by Mr. Pates through a webinar before the formal launching to the public. End/Norma Rae S. Costimiano
