THE Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) said it signed an agreement with the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) to provide labor information through online seminars.
In a statement Saturday, the DoLE said it signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with PMAP to offer DoLE lectures to PMAP members. Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III called this partnership “long overdue” and added: “I hope this collaboration would be for life.”
PMAP President Louisa Mila V. Echevarria said that PMAP “is very thankful for this cooperation.”
Prior to the MoU, PMAP had been offering so-called “webinars” on human resources, industrial relations, and people management.
“Under the deal, PMAP’s webinar sessions will feature DoLE lectures on general labor standards, occupational safety and health standards, contracting arrangements and other issuances of the department,” DoLE said. Also included the MoU are texts and e-mails on DoLE orders, advisories, explanatory bulletins and others.
PMAP has over 2,000 member companies and individual executives. — Gillian M. Cortez
