Some twenty-three Labor Information Officers (LIOs) from the five field offices and two divisions of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Caraga underwent News Writing Training conducted by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Caraga at Hotel Oazis, this city.
Ms. Jennifer Gaitano, Information Officer III of PIA-Caraga, discussed thoroughly the concepts from straight news to feature news writing. She emphasized the importance of the roles of government communicators, their news articles, and how it affects the views and understanding of the general public.
“Dapat gyud magfact check sa mga information nga madawat ug gina-gather (We need to fact check all information we received and gathered),”shared Gaitano.
The conduct of the activity aims to develop the writing skills of the department’s LIOs for the proper documentation of the implementation of Tulong Panghanapbuhay para sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program, and other DOLE Caraga core programs in the region. (CNL, CLPEP-CF)
