The Web-based system is a roster of active labor supply that shows information on the qualification and skills set of registrants which were either formally acquired in school or gained through experiences. According to Employment Officer Isabelita Codamon, the NSRS is designed to reduce job-skills mismatches and facilitate employment by providing information about the available supply of laborers. She said the problem of increasing unemployment is not actually caused by the lack of jobs, but due to skills mismatch between the workforce and the needs of firms and industries. DOLE-Ifugao field officer Alexander Gumabol said the system can also shorten the period of job searches and save jobseekers huge cost. He said the registry of skills will also be integrated in various databases of different agencies like the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, National Statistics Office, Professional Regulations Commission, and Tesda to produce an accurate data on jobs and manpower pool in the province and in the country. Codamon said the BNS are being tasked to do skills registration in the 20 barangays of Lagawe and the 15 barangays of Kiangan this November until December so that by January next year these data will be encoded by the Public Employment Service Offices of these towns. The DOLE staff also distributed advocacy materials and taught the BNS how to fill up the registration forms when they conduct skills registration in their barangays. — Daniel B. Codamon, PIA ]]>
