Behind every successful organization is a team who unselfishly works toward a common goal. This is the value that the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) MIMAROPA has exhibited in achieving another milestone this year 2020, in line with the delivery of effective and efficient services to both its internal and external clients.

 In a simple ceremony held on 27 July 2020 which was attended by limited number of personnel in compliance with the community quarantine protocols, the Civil Service Commission, Regional Office No. IV awarded the resolution issued by Chairperson Alicia dela Rosa-Bala and her Commissioners conferring DOLE MIMAROPA as bronze awardee on Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) Maturity Level II.

We received another honor that we can really be proud of. We should continue our track thus, I challenge everyone to work towards Maturity Level III or even Level IV,” Director Gutib said.
