Dole wants productivity incentives for workers-A A +A
Wednesday, March 5, 2014
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – The Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) Central Luzon Office on Wednesday encouraged private companies to give productivity incentives to workers who showed efficiency and dedication in carrying-out their duties.
During yesterday's Employers and Stakeholders forum at Max's Restaurant in Villa Del Sol, this city, Geraldine Panlilio, assistant regional director of Dole-3 said that an advisory from the national office directed them to ask businessmen to reward hardworking employees through perks.
Panlilio said private companies can motivate their workers to be more productive even without salary increase if they will acknowledge their efforts by giving them bonuses and incentives.
"Workers will give their best in doing their jobs knowing that they will be rewarded. They will focus on working hard instead of aggressively waiting for salary increase ordered by Dole," Panlilio said.
The assistant regional director also said giving perks is also advantageous to business since out-puts will be doubled and works will be efficient.
"No more dilly-dallying of works and no more unnecessary demands if the company will give them credit. Quality service from the employees will also mean good business performance and more income. It is a win-win solution to both parties," she said.
Jim Jimenez, president of the Pampanga Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (PamCham) said that some of the members of the chambers are already doing this and others will surely follow if Dole will ask them especially if business is doing well.
"A productivity incentive is already a practice of some companies, however, we should also consider the condition of the business in giving perks. But definitely the members will surely follow memorandum from Dole," he said. (Jenna Lumbang/Pampanga PIO)
