Koronadal City- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) 12 efforts to continue and sustain quality public service in SOCSKARGEN paved way to the recognition from the Civil Service Commission (CSC) with the nomination of Pag-asa ng Bayan Award (Group Category) in the 2020 Search for Outstanding Government Workers. The awarding was held at DOLE 12 Conference Room, Mabini Extension, Koronadal City on 15 February 2021.

CSC 12 Director Venus Bumanlag, member of regional Committee on Awards, handed over the plaque of recognition to Team DOLE 12 composed of ARD Arlene Bisnon, Chief Ruby Carrasco, Chief Remily Oca, and Edward Mario Mondejar.
