TACLOBAN CITY-At least 15 employees from different departments of the local government unit (LGU) of Kananga in Leyte received skills training in technical and administrative writing on March 29-30, 2023.

“LGU Kananga’s Technical Writing Workshop is a valuable investment in the professional development of its employees. It is a promising step towards improving communication and service delivery,” April Tanueco, town tourism officer said.

“By enhancing their writing abilities, participants can better communicate technical information to colleagues, superiors, and the public, ultimately leading to more efficient and effective service delivery by the LGU,” she added.

Participants of the two-day technical writing workshop thanked Mayor Manuel Vicente “Matt” Torres for the initiative.

“We learned a lot and used some of their advice immediately. It made our jobs easy,” said Kirby Jay Quijano, a personnel from the Mayor’s Office.

Aaron JP Almadro, one of the resource speakers, also lauded local government for coming up with the activity, saying it enabled the employees to perform their office tasks “with flair and ease.”

The additional topics during the activity included basic grammar and style, documentation, publication, and press release writing. (RONALD O. REYES)
