CNorte informal sector workers get training on productivity, competitiveness

DAET, Camarines Norte—At least 150 informal sector workers received Kabuhayan Starter Kits alongside training on productivity enhancement from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Camarines Norte Provincial Field Office (PFO) and the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB) RO 5 earlier this month.

“This is the first of Productivity Training we have had for DOLE Kabuhayan Starter Kits beneficiaries who are informal workers,” DOLE Bicol regional director Nathaniel V. Lacambra said.

The Productivity Training Program (PTP) typically only applies to formal enterprise, but the Provincial Field Office and RTWPB re-conceptualized and re-packaged said training.

In it, they integrated capability building trainings for DKSK beneficiaries with the aim to capacitate the project beneficiaries in productivity.

“We believe that our DKSK beneficiaries need this kind of training to improve their productivity and improve their income. I think that it (the training) will be a great tool for them to use in their everyday businesses,” DOLE Camarine Norte PFO Head MS. Jane L. Rolda said.

The training aims to upgrade the quality, efficiency and competitiveness of the would-be entrepreneur and lessen wastage.

The common misconception about productivity, OIC Board Secretary France Ocmer said, is that it is only focused on producing more goods. With such misconception, people forget that one major barometer in productivity is wastage. In a small enterprise, wastage is common. Eliminating wastage alone would ensure added income to the enterprise.
The beneficiaries learned basic productivity concepts and measurements and positive work values to enhance their processes. They were also taught that a productive worker is Industrious, Systematic, Time-conscious, Innovative, and has a strong value for work.

DOLE Bicol OIC-Regional Director Atty. Ma. Karina Perida-Trayvilla stressed that informal sector livelihood beneficiaries of DOLE must internalize and apply the 5S of good housekeeping—Sort, Systemize, Sweep, Standardize and Self-discipline—all of which are vital to the growth of any business.

“More than the large enterprise, small enterprises specifically starting individuals such as our DKSK beneficiaries should embrace the concept of productivity. In fact I believe that our informal workers beneficiaries need this training more than the big enterprises,” she remarked.

Because of its impact to the beneficiaries, the training concept will now be implemented across the region, RD Lacambra confirmed. (By Raymond P. Escalante, With reports from Renalyn Enriquez-Alano, Provincial Communications Officer)
