The DOLE observes its 81st foundation anniversary with the theme, “Higit pa sa Tagumpay at Reporma, ang DOLE Mas Makabuluhan, Mas Nadarama”, which conveys the message that beyond the reforms and its achievements, the DOLE has ushered in an era of self-transformation which impacts on the very lives of its clients and stakeholders in terms of decent and productive employment, sustained industrial peace, competitive and productive enterprises, social protection for vulnerable workers, and efficient and effective leadership and management.
“The regions and other DOLE frontline agencies have, this year and in the previous four three years under the Aquino III administration, joined the Central Office in pursuing with zeal and vigor the reforms we have set to deliver the most beneficial labor and employment programs and services to our people. We are on our way to making the DOLE a 21st century DOLE—caring, excellent, and innovative. It is proper and fitting that we celebrate another milestone in the best tradition of public service,” said Secretary Baldoz.
