Networking and linkage played a very important role in the promotion of industrial peace in the Cordillera region. This was proven by the RCMB-CAR and Baguio City Economic Zone (BCEZ).  

A Seminar Workshop on Conflict Management with the theme “Utilizing Alternative Dispute Resolution Systems to Resolve Conflicts in the Workplace” was jointly conducted on December 6, 2017 at the BCEZ Conference Hall, Loakan Rd., Baguio City.

The seminar aimed to inform and capacitate the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA)-BCEZ locator companies with the knowledge and skills of employing the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) systems in resolving labor-related conflicts in their respective workplace. RCMB-CAR headed  by Director. Brenda Rose C. Odsey served as the resource speakers.

ADR mechanisms discussed were the LMC, GM, Negotiation and Conciliation-Mediation. Dir. Odsey gave the participants hands-on experiences in resolving conflicts during the workshop. With this session, seven (7) establishments were pre-facilitated and seven (7) were enhanced.

Thirty-six (36) HR practitioners joined the activity.
