In the City of Las Piñas, a special program was recently launched to provide employment to local workers who were displaced by the pandemic, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.
To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…
The Las Piñas Public Employment Service Office (PESO) conducted house interviews as part of its weekly employment facilitation program called “Hired on the Spot” on Monday, Nov. 14.
Mayor Imelda Aguilar said the “Hired on the Spot” program is being conducted by PESO, in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), with the goal of ensuring prompt and efficient delivery of employment facilitation services.
Aguilar said the program also aims to provide employment to workers displaced by the pandemic, particularly to Las Piñas residents.
She said over 150 applicants send their resume daily to PESO and around 40 percent of the applicants get hired on the spot.
The mayor said that in addition to PESO house interviews, booths are also set-up in the city’s different barangays and partner establishments.
