♡ What's New with the Security of Tenure (SOT) bill?

Time 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Venue AmCham Philippines
2/F Corinthian Plaza, 121 Paseo de
Roxas cor. Gamboa St.
Makati, Philippines

Just recently, the House adopted Senate Bill 1826, more popularly known as the "End Endo bill" or the Security of Tenure (SOT) bill. The bill seeks to prohibit the employment malpractice of labor-only contracting or "endo," a Filipino term short for "end of contract," done by some scrupulous employers. The said practice leaves many Filipino workers unemployed, unprotected and without benefits. It also aims to strengthen workers and ensure job security for them, paving the way to permanent employment status and the associated benefits.

The bill and its intention may seem beneficial to all employees and vital for the protection of the Filipino laborers, however it is not without perils and risks.

The Human Capital Resources Committee of the American Chamber of Commerce will be having an in depth discussion on the Security of Tenure bill. The meeting will tackle the rationale, intention and components of the bill. It will also discuss what is not seen on paper—its Constitutional and legal flaws, unintended consequences, and the changes in job contracting arrangement through the bill.

Speakers

Atty. Benjo Benavidez
Assistant Secretary at Department of Labor and Employment

Atty. Melquiades Hernandez III
Corporate Affairs Director of Dole Philippines

Atty. Danilo Patron
Chairman at Philippine Society of Management Services, Inc.

☆ Effective Business Correspondence

Time 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue To Be Announced
Description This module highlights importance of effective communication in today's work environment since recent studies indicate that managers typically spend 60 to 80 percent of their time in all forms of communication. With emphasis on the communication process model, it will focus on possible breakdowns or ways a message can be misunderstood. Thus, setting a mindset that provides the concentration to design the initial message effectively and to be prepared in intervening at the appropriate time.

Although businesses have many different ways of communicating, both internally and externally, not all of these methods can be relied upon to produce desired results. Most often, organizations found that most of their mistakes are caused by sharing information that is either inaccurate or transmitted in a manner that creates confusion. Therefore, it is important to understand the most appropriate techniques both for oral and written forms.

  • identify and appreciate the range of written and oral communication used in a business.
  • appreciate effective and ineffective written and oral communication forms.

  • understand how to conduct successful business team meetings and presentations.
  • apply techniques which will improve their personal written and oral communication skills.
