Nominees from the DOLE Regional Office and its attached agencies swarmed the office of the Regional Conciliation and Mediation Board-CAR as they try to beat the deadline of submission for the best Single Entry Assistance Desk Officers (SEADOs) on November 26, 2015.


The first regional search was carried out at the RCMB-CAR’s conference room on the same day. Regional Branch Director Gil G. Caragayan presided over the deliberation attended by representatives from the National Labor Relations Commission, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration and the DOLE Regional Office. The discussion led into the endorsement of four (4) SEADOs namely; Eufrosina P. Cortez (NLRC), Melanie P. Banayos (DOLE-RO), Cesar D. Cacayuran (NCMB) and Isaac Anthony B. Basil (OWWA). All will vie for the coveted award during the National Awarding slated during the Department’s weeklong celebration of its 82nd Anniversary.

 The four Regional Winners were qualified based on speed in settlement and disposition, expeditiousness to settle, and the quality and impact of solutions rendered.

 Since its implementation in October 2010, a yearly probe has been conducted to scout the best SEADOs. This sought after recognition is currently on its 5th year. (Lyla Jane B. Tacio)
