AboitizPower partners with DOLE’s Assist WELL program for OFWs

March 31, 2016

LOCAL JOB opportunities in the Philippine power industry await Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) as AboitizPower signed up for the Assist WELL (Welfare, Employment, Legal and Livelihood) program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

AboitizPower and DOLE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) during the PHILJOBNET media launch at the Hive Hotel and Convention Place in Quezon City last March 10.

DOLE’s Assist WELL program aims to help address the welfare, employment, legal and livelihood needs of Filipino workers. It advocates ample local employment opportunities for Filipinos so that they do not have to work overseas.

“We believe in the Filipino talents and in nation-building. We are excited to partner with the Assist WELL program, to provide our OFWs an opportunity to go back to our country to work and live with their families,” said AboitizPower vice president for Human Resources Cindy Rivera.

AboitizPower, through its subsidiaries and affiliates in power generation, distribution, and retail electricity services across the country, seeks to provide opportunities, mostly in technical and engineering positions, to overseas Filipino workers to help them build a rewarding career in the country.

At present, the AboitizPower group employs more than 3,000 Filipinos, helping create A Better Future for their families. With its business expansion, AboitizPower continuously scouts for more talents to become part of its growing community.

AboitizPower is committed to fulfill its goal to create sustainable impacts on its stakeholders and on the environment while providing reliable and reasonably priced power to the nation.
