The PESO Employment Information System (PEIS) is the enhanced version of the Skills Registry System. It is a database of active manpower supply containing the profiles of all persons and employers registered under the NSRP. It shows information on the qualifications and skills of the applicants as well as the job vacancies posted by the employers. This registry is maintained and updated by all participating PESO’s nationwide.

This is the DOLE’s employment facilitation machinery which covers all the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) nationwide. The mission of this program is to promote full employment by facilitating access of Filipino jobseekers to local employment opportunities.
