The Cordillera Regional Development Council congratulates the CAR Department of Labor and Employment for being the best-performing DOLE Regional Office in 2015. Its head, Regional Director Henry S. Jalbuena was also awarded the Best DOLE Regional Director.

The recognition was made during the DOLE-wide Year-End Performance Assessment held in Manila on December 10 to 11, 2015.

The RLA, dubbed as this year’s DOLE’s “Hakot-award region”, also bagged six special citations: Higher Compliance Rate with COA recommendations; Best Program Implementer for Child Labor-Free Barangays; Best Program Implementer for Child Labor-Free Establishments, Best Labor Laws Compliance System Implementer, Best Labor and Employment Education Services Implementer, and Recognition for actively promoting the program and facilitating Requests for Assistance (October 2014-September 2015).

For making the Cordillera Region more advanced compared to the other regions in the area of labor law compliance, and for proving that the region indeed has what it takes to be autonomous, the CAR RDC applauds the DOLE-CAR Family!
