The Public Employment Service Office or PESO is a non-fee-charging multi-employment service facility or entity established to carry out full employment and equality of employment opportunities for all in pursuant to Republic Act No. 8759 otherwise known as the PESO Act of 1999.
To carry out full employment and equality of employment opportunities for all and to strengthen and expand the existing employment facilitation service machinery of the government particularly at the local levels a Public Employment Service Office or PESO is established in all capital towns of provinces and key cities. PESOs are community-based and maintained largely by local government units (LGUs) and a number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) or community-based organizations (CBOs) and state universities and colleges (SUCs). PESOs are also linked to the regional offices of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) for coordination and technical supervision and to the DOLE central office, to constitute the national employment service network.
Daily Employment Facilitation (DEF). DEF is the conduct of referral and placement activities. Referral is the process of directing pre-screened job applicants to employers (companies/agencies) with job vacancies matching their qualifications, while placement is the result of a successful referral.

CONTRIBUTIONS TO DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES
A. Millennium Development Goals (MDG)
In efforts towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals by 2015, it would be impossible to tackle poverty effectively and comprehensively without both understanding its multidimensional nature and creating decent employment opportunities for all.
The baseline population of Antipolo City in the 2007 census made by the National Statistics Office is 682,152, and the annual growth rate from year 2000 – 2010 is 7.6%. For the year 2011 – 2015, the growth rate is 6.3%. The foregoing projected population is as follows:
Table 165. Projected Labor Force Population
The job placement generated for the year 2010 and 2011 is 8,914 and 14,083 respectively, in an increasing rate of 36.70% for 2011.
With 22,997 total new job placements generated by PESO, (less 16% or equivalent to 3,679 estimated number of Non-Antipoleños, will yield to 19,318 as effective number of employment generated). Thus, this data when deducted from 68,471, the result is 49,153 – which will be the new unemployment rate which is 9.9%. Considering the new employment rate is treated constant in the next four (4) years, our data would be the following:
Significantly, compared with the previous unemployment rate of 13.8%, the new unemployment rate has decreased by 3.9% in 2011.
Solve perennial unemployment and underemployment problems through networking with Department of Labor and Employment, other PESOs, NGOs, and private organizations in the region for complementary mechanisms towards employment promotion, job generation, self- employment, manpower development, labor market information and placement facilitation in response to the demands of commercial and industrial needs for the economic growth and development of Antipolo City.
