RTWPB Caraga conducts work ethics workshop for Agusan Sur students 

BUTUAN CITY, Nov. 16 - The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB) Caraga conducted recently a discussion on Work Ethics of a Productive Worker to the students of Southway College of Technology (SOCOTECH) of San Francisco, Agusan del Sur via zoom platform.

The seminar was participated by some 94 students.

Work Ethics of a Productive Worker is a training program which aims to equip participants with work ethics enabling them to become a productive worker. It is an advocacy strategy deployed in support of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) wage subsidy programs, JobStart Philippines, Special Program for Employment of Students (SPES), DOLE Youth Camp and NOSH (newly graduated nurses).

Miraflor Granada, Labor and Employment Officer III, opened the discussion by introducing the RTWPB Basic Programs and Services.

Earl Dela Victoria, Board Secretary VI discussed the module on Work Ethics of a Productive Worker. He elaborated that these modules will guide and teach them to know the work values that employers look for, identify ways on how to demonstrate productive work values to increase productivity at work and know the basic steps on how to blend into a company culture.

“Even if you are still students, you have to know your life’s perspective and goal. Why are you studying and why are you striving hard to finish your studies,” said Dela Victoria.

Dela Victoria then encouraged the participants to be persistent and motivated in achieving their goals, to never give up despite of failures and rejection they may face in the future. He also stressed out the role and importance of productivity in their future job and to know the ethics or values of a productive worker. 

Participants were given time to share and expressed their individual comments, clarifications, and questions after the session. (RTWPB/PIA-Agusan del Sur)
