    OVP launches BAYANIHANAPBUHAY to help displaced Filipino workers find a job amid crisis brought by COVID-19

    As millions of Filipinos lose jobs due to pandemic

    OVP launches BAYANIHANAPBUHAY to help displaced Filipino workers find a job amid crisis brought by COVID-19

    Responding to calls from Filipinos left unemployed amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Vice President Leni Robredo’s Office launched BAYANIHANAPBUHAY to make job hunting easier for workers looking for employment opportunities.

    In cooperation with Elevatech, developer of the website https://sikap.ph., the Office of the Vice President put up a platform—free of charge—for jobseekers and for companies in need of workers.

    BAYANIHANAPBUHAY, a portmanteau of the words “bayanihan” and “hanapbuhay,” aims to help Filipinos who lost their jobs amid the crisis brought by the pandemic, particularly those who were recently laid off from work, blue-collar workers, and overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) forced to leave their jobs abroad due to COVID-19.

    “We have been receiving a lot of SOS messages from people looking for work. When we were doing our shuttle services, we had passengers who were doing door-to-door job applications,” VP Leni said.

    “We hope that, through this platform, they would have an easier time finding work opportunities,” she added.

    Over the past weeks, the OVP has been working with companies from various industries in enrolling on Sikap.PH, in order to provide jobseekers more opportunities.

    As of 5 P.M, Thursday, there were already 2,796 job openings posted by various companies on the website.

    This was made possible by companies who swiftly responded to the OVP’s call, including EMS Services Philippines, Inc. (ESPI), D.M. Consunji, Inc., Lots'a Pizza, Concentrix, Empire East Land Holdings, AECOM Philippines, GET Philippines, McBride Corporation, Omni Petroleum Corp, Solarwinds Software Asia PTE LTD - Philippines Branch.

    The OVP calls on more employers to join BAYANIHANAPBUHAY and sign onto the platform. Those interested to upload their job vacancies may send their details to [email protected]
