The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration held the Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar (PDOS) at the Global Pinoy Center of SM City Bacolod recently.
OWWA regional director Samuel Madrid said the recruitment agencies based in Bacolod agreed to conduct a weekly PDOS in the city every Wednesday, beginning April 6 thus overseas-bound workers from Negros Occidental and Bacolod City will no longer have to travel to Iloilo City.
17 Overseas Filipino Workers attended the PDOS conducted by Overseas Workers Welfare Officer Reynold T. Pigar. The Global Pinoy Center located at the northwing of SM City Bacolod is the venue of the Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar.
A project under SM Cares Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, the Global Pinoy Center or GPC is a one-stop shop that offers remittances services, communication facilities, shopping and even skills training, and investment and legal consultations. It aims to serve the needs and champion the cause of Pinoys abroad and expatriates, as well as their dependents and beneficiaries living in the country.
An Overseas Filipino Worker who visits any SM GPC can get his own personalized Global Pinoy Card, which entitles him to exclusive rewards and privileges. This card also allows him exclusive entry to any SM Global Pinoy Center where he can do transactions at the BDO remittance counter, SM Department Store's Foreign Exchange or Business Counter. He can also use the center’s Internet facilities, voice or video calls for free. His card will also enable him to enjoy Php80,000.00 worth of discounts and privileges and other SM promos. This card is also available for the Global Pinoys families and beneficiaries, which they can use in any of our Global Pinoy Centers across all SM Supermalls nationwide.
The Global Pinoy Center is located at the North Al Fresco (in between Shakey’s and Rai Rai Ken) of SM City Bacolod.
