Banco De Oro (BDO) has donated 45 units of computer hardware during ceremonies held August 9, 2019 in the Iloilo provincial capitol.
Iloilo governor Arthur Defensor Jr. said at the signing of the Deed of Donation that each of 42 towns and the component City of Passi in Iloilo would have one computer.
Two of these computers are to be used by the Public Employment Services Office (PESO) of Iloilo to link with the towns in implementing the electronic Manpower and Skills Registry System (eMSRS).
The eMSRS keeps track of an updated manpower and skills available in the barangays of each town and city in the province.
“We want to create a database, like, how many nursing or commerce graduates are there in a certain area. So we can readily match these with available employment opportunities,” the governor noted.
PESO head Francisco Heler said that while the eMSRS has been available for some time, the lack of computer hardware in the 42 towns and Passi City had hampered full utilization of the system.
Besides Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. other officials at the turn-over ceremonies were led by Geneva Gloria, BDO senior vice president. /jft (with Louine Hope Conserva, Capitol news)
