Caloocan PESO lauded as best in Metro Manila

The Department of Labor and Employment once again awarded the Caloocan City’s Public Employment Services Office during the 2018 Search for Best Performing PESO in the National Capital Region.

The City Government of Caloocan got the awards for Best Career Guidance and Employment Coaching and Best Prompt SPES Payment. 

DOLE cited the city government’s “valuable contributions in providing relevant information that steered the youth towards the right career path and high employability” and for its “timely submission of reports that immediately facilitated the payment of the DOLE 40-percent share in the salaries of the SPES beneficiaries.”

On behalf of Mayor Oca Malapitan, PESO-Caloocan head Violeta Gonzales recently received the awards during DOLE’s Year-end Performance Assessment and Planning Exercise at the Aloha Hotel.

“All these recognitions are results of our hardwork and Mayor Oca’s dedication to provide livelihood for Caloocan residents,” Gonzales said.

Meanwhile, Senator Sonny Angara congratulated the City Government of Caloocan and Mayor Oca Malapitan for all the awards and recognitions the local government has received for its exemplary performance.

Angara was welcomed by Mayor Oca, Vice Mayor Maca Asistio, Rep. Along Malapitan, City Administrator Oliver Hernandez, Secretary to the Mayor Betsie Luakian, city councilors, department heads, and employees during the city’s recent founding anniversary.

“On Caloocan’s 57th cityhood anniversary, I laud all of you for the honors you have received and the progress you continue to show for your citizens,”  Angara said.

Mayor Oca thanked Sen. Angara for visiting Caloocan and vowed to continue working for the city’s progress.

“We will work harder to make Caloocan City a more progressive city,” he said.
