It is envisioned that the new Labor Center would be a “one-stop-shop”, a centralized service area where all labor-related matters are addressed and processed for convenience of FAB employers and employees.
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU?
In AFAB, we care about providing our employees’ with a well-equipped, organized, and comfortable workplace as we believe that it is the tone-setter for a business' atmosphere and an important aspect in increasing employee productivity which leads to favorable client service outcomes.
With improved facility design and layout, clients can expect better aesthetics, seating comfort, facility cleanliness, and most importantly, integrated service processes for their convenience. We aim to enable clients with a single access point to information and service transactions regarding all labor-related concerns.
The new Labor Center would house a satellite NBI Clearance office to give clients from Mariveles the accessibility and ease of acquiring an NBI clearance.
Other the features of the center would include: a designated Mediation Room, Conference Room, Lounge, Labor Office, Industrial Health and Safety Office, and an Inspection and Disputes Office.
As we consistently expand our efforts in delivering top notch service to all the FAB’s stakeholders, you can expect greater support and assistance from the AFAB especially in ensuring total client satisfaction, continual improvement, and compliance to all required governmental and industry standards.
