The University of Batangas Community Relations, Alumni and Placement Office (University-based PESO) headed by Mrs. Anna Louisa L. Cauntay has been conferred as the 2016 Regional Best PESO for the Educational Institution Category, thus earning the official nomination of the Region IV-A CALABARZON to compete for the National Awards. The awarding was held last August 9, 2017 at Bakasyunan Resort and Conference Center, Tanay Rizal during the PESO Mid-Year Planning and Assessment.
The “Search for Best PESO” is an annual activity that recognizes the important contribution and exceptional accomplishment of the Public Employment Service Offices in the deployment of DOLE-initiated employment facilitation programs. It likewise serves as a way to acknowledge the exemplary performance of the PESO as a labor market information hub, and provider of employment services such as job referral and placements, career guidance and employment coaching to the intended clients.
It covers all existing PESO such as LGU-based, NGO-based, Educational Institutions and Community-based Organizations provided that they are operational and active for a period of at least one year prior to nomination to ensure continuance of service.
From the list of nominees, winners of each PESO Category will be declared as recipient of the 2016 Best PESO Award on October 4, 2017 at FL DY Coliseum, Rizal Avenue, District 3, Cauayan City, Isabela during the 17th National PESO Congress.
