Baguio City Representative Mark Go said his more than two-decade experience in the field of human resources inspired him to file bills on worker empowerment.
The Baguio politiko cited House Bill No. 6152, or the Compressed Work Week Act, and House Bill No. 6770, which increases the service incentive leave from five to 10 days for private employees.
“Most of you are aware that I have spent more than 23 years of my professional life as a human resource practitioner. I have seen real changes in people’s lives as a result of proper motivation and meaningful empowerment,” Go said.
He said he will continue to pursue these proposed measures in his second term as lawmaker.
“We shall work on measures that will reduce unemployment nationwide as an effort to alleviate poverty and social inequality by providing incentives to those companies and entities that are pro-employment,” Go said.
“Our goal is also to improve company and employee productivity and implement success sharing programs while improving the country’s employment level. It is only when employees are happy with their work that they can be truly productive,” he added.
