DOLE RO1 Launches DAYAW DOLE Awards
The Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office I (DOLE ROI) launched its Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (PRAISE) dubbed DAYAW DOLE Awards, during the Management Committee Meeting and Mid-Year Performance Assessment on July 23, 2021 at La Fayette Luxury Suites, Bauang, La Union.
DAYAW DOLE stands for Dignified, Accountable, Yearning, and Able Workers of DOLE Region 1. It seeks to give due recognition and incentives to the employees and staff of the regional office, and encourage their consistent improvement of their delivery of public service. 
The DAYAW DOLE forms part of the RO1’s Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM), pursuant to Civil Service Commission (CSC) Resolution No. 010112 and CSC Memorandum Circular No. 1-2001. It is a mechanism that empowers government agencies by developing their human resource management competencies, systems, and practices toward HR excellence.
In the DAYAW DOLE, individuals and groups (field offices and work units) shall be recognized for performance-based merits, such as on program management and implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and work ethics. Awardees shall receive cash prizes and certificates/plaque. 
It shall also confer non-performance based recognitions, such as to employees who garnered personal milestones like academic and professional achievements. Mechanisms to foster motivation among employees are also integrated in the DAYAW DOLE.
Institutional cash incentives also form part of the DAYAW DOLE. These include the loyalty pay, Salary Step Increment, Productivity Enhancement Incentive, and Performance-Based Bonus (PBB). Formerly called the “Salamat Mabuhay,” the recognition to retirees is also now a part of the DAYAW DOLE. 
The first awardee of DAYAW DOLE was Mr. Emmanuel H. Hagad, the former Chief of the DOLE Ilocos Sur Field Office (ISFO) who retired last June 2021 after his 32 years of service in the DOLE. He rose from the ranks as Labor Employment Analyst 1989, until he assumed the helm of the ISFO in 2017 up to his retirement. 
Mr. Hagad received plaque of recognition, and tokens from his colleagues who also expressed their gratitude in a simple tribute program held. END/Justin Paul Marbella.
