Villar calls for creating a list of skilled employees in each barrio.

A bill introduced by Senator Mark Villar calls for the creation of a database of all talented employees in every barangay, which will be used to properly match their qualifications with job openings.

According to Villar, the “Barangay Skilled Workers Registration Act,” or Senate Bill No. 1910, which he submitted on February 21 is comparable to the existing registration for other professions, such as doctors, teachers, lawyers, engineers, and others professions.

The measure also aims to recognize the contribution of barangays to economic growth and job creation by establishing a barangay-level employment information system that targets the local skilled employees. According to his explanation note, the barangay registration would act as a database for information on skilled employees in the area.

The registration will highlight the involvement of the barangays in generating accurate information about skilled workers in their locality that will help them attract employers and, as a result, provide opportunities for employment, according to Villar. The registration is without prejudice to the privacy rights of the skilled workers in accordance with the Data Privacy Act of 2012.

The registry must include pertinent information, such as the identity, services provided, skills provided, and previous employment history of the skilled worker. Also, it must include contact information and documentation of credentials.

Not only those with national credentials from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority qualify as skilled workers (TESDA).

According to the proposed law, each barangay must establish a registry that would act as a database for all skilled workers who voluntarily register to provide their services and look for employment possibilities in the area and who are barangay residents.

The Public Employment Service Office (PESO), in conjunction with the Department of Interior and Local Government, and with assistance from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), shall construct the registry (DILG).
It is free to list a skilled worker’s name and associated information in the registry.
