The Bureau of Workers with Special Concerns (BWSC) through the Workers in Informal Economy Development Division (WIEDD) sponsored the training-workshop to help the 19 participants gain knowledge and skills in writing clear, concise and accurate technical reports with proper styling, grammar and information structure that can be easily understood by readers.
Resource persons from the Dela Salle University headed by Professor Rumel Atienza shared their expertise in writing technical reports particularly in writing the title, abstract, findings, conclusion, recommendation, summary, reference and citation.
They also discussed models of communication, types of reports and formats, pre-writing techniques, and plagiarism which includes Turnitin (an online plagiarism checker software). Likewise, Mr. Atienza facilitated the writing workshop to evaluate the participants' primary skills in writing.
BWSC Director Ahmma Charisma Lobrin-Satumba stressed the importance of the training for a staff bureau like BWSC wherein workloads are more in secretariat and policy making that basically required skills in writing.
She advised the participants to write a clear, concise and direct to the point reports and observe the Bureau's communication protocol. Satumba also encouraged the 19 trainees from the various divisions of the Bureau to continue practice writing and apply what they have learned in the training.
"Having this kind of training is our edge to be more efficient in our respective assignments", Satumba remarked.
