Zambales Vying For Best PESO

IBA, Zambales - This province's Public Employment Service Office (PESO) is again a candidate for this year's "Best PESO Performance," a nationwide competition for employment offices.

Recently, the PESO Zambales won in the Region 3 second-class province category at the Year-End Performance Assessment (YEPA) conducted by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Region III and the Regional PESO Managers Association Federation, Inc. (RPMFI).

Last year, the Zambales PESO also bagged the award as top performer in Central Luzon for the same category before going on to win the 2011 National Best PESO Award at the 12th National PESO Congress held in Baguio City on October 11, 2012.

Aside from being cited as a top regional performer for 2012, PESO Zambales was also awarded for having the best innovative program in Central Luzon.

"Now we're aiming to be in the PESO Hall of Fame," said Governor Hermogenes Ebdane Jr., after hearing the good news from Zambales Vice Gov. Ramon Lacbain II, who is also manager of Zambales PESO.

Commending Lacbain for steering the provincial PESO to greater heights, Ebdane said: "Zambales PESO has risen from non-performance and virtual non-existence to a being a role model not only in facilitating employment but also in providing other livelihood opportunities for Zambales residents."

Lacbain said the awards that Zambales PESO has received "only proves the provincial government's commitment to serving the people."

"Despite the fact that Zambales PESO was institutionalized only two years ago, we have won the regional title twice in a row," Lacbain said. "We have been consistently winning awards because Governor Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. has given top priority and full support to this program," he added.

Lacbain added that aside from conducting job fairs in the last two years, Zambales PESO has undertaken career guidance coaching seminars, pre-employment orientation seminars, and labor education for graduating students.

    China faces a dilemma in Ayungin Shoal and other contested areas. If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
