Labor Affairs Agency receives training from ILO

An ILO Team consisting of Mr. Reynold Simons, the Senior Specialist for Employment and Labor Market Policies and Mr. Kerwyn Roach, the Software Developer administered training to users while installing the software at the Department of Labor Affairs. 

This new software will enhance the labor administration services and allow for the dissemination of relevant labor market statistics both locally and internationally.

Minister of Public Health, Social Development & Labor, Cornelius De Weever stated that with the implementation of this new software, much needed data can be collected, which will enable much needed policies to be developed in the interest of our population.

By utilizing this product, the Labor Affairs Agency can heighten their service quality, and allow monitoring of trends which assists in program and policy development. The system provides modules for registering of unemployment, vacancies, job placement and requesting and tracking of employment permits among others.

The interlinking of the various modules allows for reliable statistics to be compiled from various sources each having the ability to input their own data. The standard reporting format output from the system allows for better communication and comparison throughout the various ILO countries which makes tracking Regional trends all the more easier.
