Youth employment research topped the agenda of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) at the DOLE Inter-Agency Committee on Research Matters (DOLE-IAC-RM) Stakeholder Consultations organized by the Institute for Labor Studies (ILS) in January.
With the theme, “The Future of Work: Research Initiatives for 2013,” this year’s stakeholder consultation took a special focus on decent jobs for the youth with the 2013 DOLE focus on youth employment.
“We salute the efforts of Greenpeace in coming up with the first of its kind report on the economic potential of renewable energy – particularly on the generation of jobs. The report will help develop the policy and industry response needed to fuel interest on green jobs,” said Cruz.
The newly elected officers of the Institute for Labor Studies Employees Association (ILSEA), took their oath of office before ILS Executive Director Cynthia R. Cruz last December 12, 2012.
The Institute for Labor Studies Employees Association (ILSEA) is the accredited labor union of the Institute for Labor Studies.
In celebration of its 25th year of service, the Institute for Labor Studies (ILS) marked the occasion with its Christmas Party-cum-25th Grand Anniversary celebration, dubbed “ILSilver Acoustic Carols” held on December 21, 2012 at the ILS Hall.
“Our year-end party served as a double celebration for ILS. First the occasion marked the annual celebration of the Christmas season and second was to commemorate our 25 years of service, which we marked early this year,” said Executive Director Cynthia R. Cruz of the Institute for Labor Studies.
It was the fruit of the labor of love.
