Issues with workers in Philippine city highlighted by local newspaper

We would like to consider Elite HR one of the most effective HR recruitment agencies for helping to fill HR jobs in Surrey, Southampton, Portsmouth and many other places. If we are indeed one of these agencies, there is evidence that the city of Mabalacat in the Philippines could hugely benefit from a HR recruitment agency of the same standard as Elite HR. The Philippine newspaper Sun.Star Pampanga has recently reported that an “outsider” reckons that nearly half of the city’s labour force are not qualified for their jobs; this has led the paper to declare that the city’s Human Resources Management Office should do more to live up to its nomenclature.

Workers that seem to fall short of crucial standards

It is expected that the city’s employees meet particular standards concerning academic qualifications, experience and attitude to work. However, it seems that many current workers in Mabalacat might not meet all of these standards. The aforementioned “outsider” has reportedly said that some of these workers have obtained their jobs due to having inappropriately influenced the corporate recruitment process or simply having previously held political office. All of this suggests that the city’s Human Resources Management Office – or, as it can be referred to in shorthand, HRMO – has many issues to rectify, and Sun.Star Pampanga has certainly been forthcoming in explaining precisely how it could rectify these issues.

The paper has, for example, appealed for HRMO to be “strict and discreet” in judging who should become employed in the city. It added that choices of who to employ “should not be based merely on religious beliefs or creed or proximity to the appointing officers or the Personnel Selection Board”. It also called for “restrictions towards nepotism” and for employees in Mabalacat to be taught “the values of honesty, loyalty and professionalism”.

Insufficient opportunities for employees‘ training and development

The paper has also insisted that employees should be given suitable opportunities to enhance their skills and so better compete with their foreign counterparts. The paper has suggested, for example, that the city’s Human Resources Management Office should make mandatory for Mabalacat workers trainings, workshops and symposia such as, for lawyers, the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education. It added that employees’ retirement ages, trainings and academic backgrounds could be tracked through computerising employees’ data files. With help from Elite HR, many UK businesses can also enhance the quality of their workforces.
