Much more than a health crisis\, COVID-19 has created unprecedented social\, economic\, and political concerns that will leave deep scars on all those affected. To address issues concerning the private sector\, disrupted businesses in the Philippines resorted to implementing work from home arrangements\, pay-cuts\, and even retrenchment of employees due to severe business losses. On the other hand\, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has issued several labor advisories and guidelines to govern workplace relations during the ongoing pandemic. \nUnfortunately\, most employers find it hard to draft and personalize their own “new normal” workplace policies to address the control and prevention of the COVID-19. Uncommon practices such as diminution of benefits and temporary suspension of employees have been resorted to by some employers to keep and save their employees and businesses. Employers likewise tend to have recourse to work from home arrangement policies without setting out clear and detailed guidelines\, leaving the employees confused and unaware of their rights and responsibilities. \nThis session shall help employers identify the relevant areas and factors that should be considered in designing employment contracts covering flexible work arrangements. This training will allow employers to be flexible in managing their workers without resorting to layoffs and downsizing their workforce. \n\nProgram Objectives \nAt the end of the program participants will be able to: \n\nReview the labor standards and how these standards shape the current government policy\nUnderstand the application of latest department orders and labor advisories\nUpdate company policies and guidelines consistent with existing rules and regulations of the Department of Labor and Employment.\n\n\nProgram Outline \n\nWork that falls under new work arrangements: What are the standards and what are alternative work arrangements\nDrafting company policies and guidelines; common practices and policies on enterprise level (its limitations) vs. labor standards\, rules\, and guidelines of DOLE.\nSocial dialogue as a communication mechanism tool\nManaging alternative work arrangements\n\nTime\nCompensation\nOutput\nApplication of basic labor standards\n\n\n\n\nMethodology \n3 hours per session\, lecturette\, group work and presentations \nTarget Participants \nParticipants who are in-charge of drafting company policies and procedures including its labor compliance team\, this may include but not limited to Company President\, CEO\, Human Resources – Vice president\, Human Resources Head\, Human Resources Manager\, Human Resource Consultant\, Human Resources Generalist\, Human Resource Industrial Relations Practitioners\, Labor Lawyers\, and others. \nProgram Schedule \nApril 23 and 28\, 2021 9:00 am to 12:00 nn via Zoom and ECOP eCampus (2-day program) \nResource Speaker \nAtty.

DESCRIPTION:Program Overview  \nAs a result of the rise of COVID – 19 cases\, lot of government restrictions have been imposed. These restrictions also affect the economy of the country and  will likely result in another huge loss to companies. Both employers and workers are among the hardest hit. \nThe big question now is how will companies continue to survive? The last option of some companies is to downsize their workforce to cut on operating costs. The process of downsizing employees is not easy\, This entails a lot of legal processes. And if a company does not make it right\, it can result in a protracted legal battle with employees. \nThis program will help employers understand the strategic importance of management creativity as well as of legal and regulatory compliance in formulating and implementing rightsizing measures. Accordingly\, the program gives equal attention to the proper application of the authorized causes of termination of employment; the optimization of human resources through proactive company policies on employee recruitment\, deployment\, development and retention; and the role of rightsizing in strategically facilitating business transformation. \n\nProgram Objectives  \nAt the end of the program\, participants will be able to: \n\nUnderstand the legal and regulatory framework of termination\nKnow the other options aside from termination of employment\nCreate a strategic-decision making mindset in rightsizing and restructuring manpower\n\n\nProgram Outlines  \n\nSecurity of tenure and management prerogative\nAuthorized causes of employment termination\nFlexible work arrangements\nWork arrangements outside employer and employee relationship\nStrategic decision-making in rightsizing and restructuring\n\n\nMethodology \n\nOnline lecturette via Zoom\nCase study discussions\nOnline group work\n\n\nProgram Schedule \nApril 30 and May 5\, 2021 9:00 am to 12:00 nn via Zoom and ECOP eCampus (2-day program) \nResource Speaker \nAtty.

Companies which are compliant with labor standards have potentials of expanding their business network\, markets and customers with the rising interest on due diligence. Compliance protects the value chain against future labor disputes and cases. \nIn order to achieve compliance\, employers must have knowledge of the relevant laws\, regulations and procedures. At the very least\, they should know the specific labor standards subject to the enforcement and inspection authority of the DOLE. They should develop the capacity to undertake a self-assessment or self-audit of their state of compliance with labor standards\, as well as the corresponding capacity to correct any forms of non-compliance. \nThis 2-session program has two primary objectives. The first is to equip participants with the knowledge to voluntarily comply with labor standards. In turn\, this knowledge is expected to enhance labor-management harmony and to prevent conflicts and disputes. The second is to equip them with skills and competencies in negotiation and social dialogue as strategies in promoting voluntary compliance and correcting or resolving instances of non-compliance. \n\nProgram Objectives\n\n\nAt the end of the program\, participants will be able to: \n\nunderstand the employer-employee relationship\nknow what the standard and flexible work arrangements are\nlearn how new DOLE policies can affect their company’s policies\nassess their company’s labor compliance\nresolve their compliance gaps\n\n\nProgram Outline \n\nEmployer-employee relationship\n\n4-fold test\n\n\nStandard work arrangements\n\nOverview of conditions of employment\n\n\nFlexible work arrangements\n\nGuidelines on the adoption of flexible arrangement (DOLE advisory 2 series of 2009)\nGuidelines on the Implementation of flexible work arrangements (DOLE Advisory 4 series of 2012)\nImplementing Rules and Regulations of RA 11165 known as the “Telecommuting Act” (DO 202-19)\n\n\n\n4.  Assessing company compliance using DOLE checklist \n\n\nMethodology \n\nOnline lecturette via Zoom\nCase study discussions\nOnline group work\n\n\nProgram Schedule \nMay 19 and 21\, 2021 9:00 AM to 12:00 NN via Zoom and ECOP eCampus (2-day program) \nResource Speaker \nAtty.

A safe and healthy workplace eliminates accidents\, reduces absenteeism\, raises employee morale\, and enhances employee productivity. The absence of a safe and healthy working environment increases the frequency of workplace accidents and illnesses resulting in the increase of  the cost of doing business. \nWith the cases mentioned above\, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) issued department order (DO) 198 s. 2018 to strengthen the enforcement of OSH policies and programs for private companies. The DO states that companies must establish safety and health policies and programs as well as install safety officers to ensure that these programs are being enforced. \nIn this regard\, ECOP will conduct a 5-day intensive online training program with safety officers as prospective participants. This extensive training will help them to assume the roles of a full-fledged Safety Officer 2 (based on the Implementing Rules and Regulations). It will also help them gain the necessary skills and knowledge to develop safety and health policies and programs for their companies and mitigate the risk and hazards that can cause occupational accidents and illnesses in the workplace. \nProgram Objectives \nAt the end of the 5-day (40 hours) intensive training program\, participants will be able to: \n\nLearn the basics of occupational safety and health\nUnderstand government regulations that focuses on occupational safety and health\nDetermine hazards and risks at work and develop measures on how to eliminate them\nDraft company OSH policies\nBe certified safety officer 2 practitioner\n\n\nProgram Contents \n\nOverview of Occupational Safety and Health\nHow to Comply with the DOLE Department Order no. 198 series of 2018\nIntroduction to Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment\, and Control\nHow to Eliminate Workplace Accidents\nCommunicating OSH in the workplace: trainer’s training course\n\n\nMethodology \nThe webinar will adopt the  blended learning approach. Participants will be provided ECOP’s eCampus login credentials for them to access self-paced training materials (such as videos\, power point presentations\, and other relevant training documents).  The eCampus platform will help the participants prepare for the actual scheduled Zoom check-in sessions. \nDuring the scheduled Zoom check-in session\, lecturers will provide the following: \n\nSafety demonstrations\nSafety videos\nLecturettes\nAnswers to participants’ questions\n\nParticipants are also required to answer pre-and-post-test to check the effectiveness of the training program. \nTarget Participants \nCompany representatives\, from either micro\, small\, medium\, or large enterprise\, who will assume the role of safety officer number 2. \nThey may be: \n\nProprietors’ /CEOs/presidents of micro and small companies in any industry\nHuman resources practitioners\nAppointed safety officers that have not yet undergone safety training\n\nProgram Schedule \nMay 24\, 25\, 26\, 27\, and 28\, 2021 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (total of 40 hours) \nProgram fee \nRegular Price/Non-member Rate: PhP 8\,000.00 \nAll ECOP members are entitled to a member-rate discount using a coupon code.

It shut down the world economy\, paralyzed domestic and international travel\, closed down schools\, malls\, churches\, mosques\, bars restaurants\, and almost all businesses. In the Philippines\, Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) has destroyed our consumption-driven economy. The pandemic led to the implementation of social distancing\, work-from-home arrangement (WFH) schemes\, distance learning through Zoom platform\, and led to the of e-commerce. \nThe lockdown resulted to millions of lost jobs\, permanent closure of some businesses\, and also put in danger the survival of MSMEs which comprise 99.6% of total business enterprises that employ about 60% of the total workforce. \nEmployers face the dilemma of retrenching people for their businesses to survive. But the challenge to this is how to retrench people at this time? \nRetrenching people is the most challenging job of any manager. Deciding who will go and breaking the sad news is not easy. No manager loves to do it\, and no company goes unscathed in the process. \nPeople who lose their jobs will be angry\, bitter\, and feel a sense of betrayal. They and their families are faced with the loss of livelihood that could lead to severe financial and emotional pain. Survivors may also feel unhappy and uncertain about the future. Morale will be low and productivity suffers. \nDownsizing may be caused by many factors such as a bloated workforce\, economic downturn\, automation\, mergers/consolidation\, restructuring\, or fierce competition. The euphemism is “reengineering\,” a bloodless term for corporate bloodletting. But whatever it is called\, it hits employees like a bombshell. It can be the most unsettling and disruptive event which sometimes\, if not managed well\, could lead to union organization\, strike\, or even violence. \nThere are ways to soften the blow in this heart-wrenching human drama and minimize\, if not\, avoid lawsuits. Survivors can also continue to be engaged and focused on their jobs or newly-designed or expanded jobs. \nThe seminar-workshop will be laced with examples of viable options on retrenchment or redundancy exercise\, strategies\, the economics of labor reduction\, a case study and a legal clinic at the end of the two-day session. \nProgram Objectives \nAt the end of the program\, participants will be able to: \n\nknow the strategies and tactics of downsizing within the bounds of law and best practice\nbe aware of the different modes of workforce reduction and their advantages and disadvantages\ncompute cost-benefit ratio of corporate downsizing as basis for its top management and board approval\nunderstand the different structured approaches to staff reduction to mitigate its adverse impact to employee morale and productivity\n\n\nProgram Contents \nDay 1 \n\nLegal Parameters on Termination/Downsizing\nReview of the Causes of Downsizing\nDeveloping a Strategy and Plan for Downsizing\nCommunication Techniques\nAlternative Ways of Downsizing\n\nDay 2 \n\nManaging Problems on Implementation\nEconomics of Downsizing\nCase Study/Workshop\nCoping with Post-Separation Stresses\nOpen Forum and Legal Clinic\n\n\nMethodology \n\nWebinar\nOnline workshop\n\n  \nResource Speaker \nAtty.

Financial losses are painful for the company\, but retrenchment is even more painful. \nTo cope with losses and save their talented workforce\, companies rely on workforce restructuring. Consequently\, employment contracts are terminated\, consultants are hired instead of regular employees \, or employment status is changed from fregular to non-regular. But are these practices legal and ethical\, or how should the company restructure to fulfil their manpower requirements? \nThis online training session will help participants properly plan their manpower requirements by understanding what the law provides about employment relationships. The program will also take a deep dive into the fundamental and recent labor policies to help managers and executives decide how they will restructure their manpower needed in their operations. The program will also look at some national policies on flexible working arrangements to help employers craft their own corporate policies. \nProgram Objectives  \nAt the end of the program\, participants will be able to: \n\nKnow the categories of employment in the Philippines\nDifferentiate regular and non-regular employment and learn when a company should categorize their workers under each classification\nUnderstand allowable contracting and subcontracting arrangements\nLearn flexible employment arrangements\nDevelop the necessary human resource plan that is tailor-fitted to a company\n\n\nProgram Contents  \n\nRegular employment\nNon-regular employment\nContracting and subcontracting\nFlexible employment arrangements\nPutting strategies into action\n\n\nMethodologies \n\nZoom check-in session\nAction planning\n\n\nProgram Schedule \nMay 26 and 28\, 2021 9:00 am to 12:00 nn via Zoom and ECOP eCampus (2-day program) \nResource Speaker \nAtty.

The pandemic led to the implementation of social distancing\, work-from-home arrangement (WFH) schemes\, distance learning through Zoom platform\, and led to the of e-commerce. \nThe lockdown resulted to millions of lost jobs\, permanent closure of some businesses\, and also put in danger the survival of MSMEs which comprise 99.6% of total business enterprises that employ about 60% of the total workforce. \nEmployers face the dilemma of retrenching people for their businesses to survive. But the challenge to this is how to retrench people at this time? \nRetrenching people is the most challenging job of any manager. Deciding who will go and breaking the sad news is not easy. No manager loves to do it\, and no company goes unscathed in the process. \nPeople who lose their jobs will be angry\, bitter\, and feel a sense of betrayal. They and their families are faced with the loss of livelihood that could lead to severe financial and emotional pain. Survivors may also feel unhappy and uncertain about the future. Morale will be low and productivity suffers. \nDownsizing may be caused by many factors such as a bloated workforce\, economic downturn\, automation\, mergers/consolidation\, restructuring\, or fierce competition. The euphemism is “reengineering\,” a bloodless term for corporate bloodletting. But whatever it is called\, it hits employees like a bombshell. It can be the most unsettling and disruptive event which sometimes\, if not managed well\, could lead to union organization\, strike\, or even violence. \nThere are ways to soften the blow in this heart-wrenching human drama and minimize\, if not\, avoid lawsuits. Survivors can also continue to be engaged and focused on their jobs or newly-designed or expanded jobs. \nThe seminar-workshop will be laced with examples of viable options on retrenchment or redundancy exercise\, strategies\, the economics of labor reduction\, a case study and a legal clinic at the end of the two-day session. \nProgram Objectives \nAt the end of the program\, participants will be able to: \n\nknow the strategies and tactics of downsizing within the bounds of law and best practice\nbe aware of the different modes of workforce reduction and their advantages and disadvantages\ncompute cost-benefit ratio of corporate downsizing as basis for its top management and board approval\nunderstand the different structured approaches to staff reduction to mitigate its adverse impact to employee morale and productivity\n\n\nProgram Contents \nDay 1 \n\nLegal Parameters on Termination/Downsizing\nReview of the Causes of Downsizing\nDeveloping a Strategy and Plan for Downsizing\nCommunication Techniques\nAlternative Ways of Downsizing\n\nDay 2 \n\nManaging Problems on Implementation\nEconomics of Downsizing\nCase Study/Workshop\nCoping with Post-Separation Stresses\nOpen Forum and Legal Clinic\n\n\nMethodology \n\nWebinar\nOnline workshop\n\n  \nResource Speaker \nAtty.

Financial losses are painful for the company\, but retrenchment is even more painful. \nTo cope with losses and save their talented workforce\, companies rely on workforce restructuring. Consequently\, employment contracts are terminated\, consultants are hired instead of regular employees \, or employment status is changed from fregular to non-regular. But are these practices legal and ethical\, or how should the company restructure to fulfil their manpower requirements? \nThis online training session will help participants properly plan their manpower requirements by understanding what the law provides about employment relationships. The program will also take a deep dive into the fundamental and recent labor policies to help managers and executives decide how they will restructure their manpower needed in their operations. The program will also look at some national policies on flexible working arrangements to help employers craft their own corporate policies. \nProgram Objectives  \nAt the end of the program\, participants will be able to: \n\nKnow the categories of employment in the Philippines\nDifferentiate regular and non-regular employment and learn when a company should categorize their workers under each classification\nUnderstand allowable contracting and subcontracting arrangements\nLearn flexible employment arrangements\nDevelop the necessary human resource plan that is tailor-fitted to a company\n\n\nProgram Contents  \n\nRegular employment\nNon-regular employment\nContracting and subcontracting\nFlexible employment arrangements\nPutting strategies into action\n\n\nMethodologies \n\nZoom check-in session\nAction planning\n\n\nProgram Schedule \nMay 26 and 28\, 2021 9:00 am to 12:00 nn via Zoom and ECOP eCampus (2-day program) \nResource Speaker \nAtty.
