To help enterprises blaze their trails towards competitiveness and harmony in the workplace, the Department developed a toolbox containing a list of all of its productivity and workplace relations training programs and technical assistance. This package of assistance is dubbed as hashtag #EngageMotivateAchieve.
To initially introduce this initiative, a series of soft launches was organized. The first was held in Dipolog City last September 24 and then in Cebu City on October 2 during the Area-wide Seminar on the Role of LMC in the DOLE Convergence Programs. The labor management council or workplace cooperation schemes shall serve as the primary platform in providing this package of developmental interventions.
These assistance hope to #EngageMotivateAchieve both workers and enterprises by enhancing the capacity of our workforce to realize their worth and full potentials and to help enterprises sustain their viability especially in this evolving era of greater regional economic integration. Thus, under the #EngageMotivateAchieve are the sub themes empowering workers, sustaining enterprises.
The battlecry #Engage+Motivate+Achieve in essence captures the commitment of the Department to provide continuing assistance to workers and enterprises as well as describes the extent of its interface with its key stakeholders. The battlecry also represents the win-win strategies to be employed in deploying the toolbox in order for the social partners achieve their aspirations.
#Engage means getting the social partners on board through conduct of massive information campaign and networking using multi-media platforms including the social networking sites
#Motivate entails providing the learning space and opportunities to build capacities of workers by demonstrating their learnings and for enterprises to grow, expand and share the fruits of their joint endeavor.
#Achieve requires enabling the social partners realize their goals by way of recognizing best practices of their learnings and noble contributions in advancing the welfare of the workers and improving business performance.
The priority target beneficiaries are labor standards compliant establishments. Technical assistance on labor standards including basic occupational safety and health standards are extended to those establishments who have signified their willingness to comply.
To spread this good news, everyone is invited to take part in the Twitter FB Instragram party on 15 October between 9:45am-10:30am by tweeting, liking and sharing #EngageMotivateAchieve and #ProductivityOlympicsNWPC.
