The seminar for Productivity Improvement Seminar and 5S of Good Housekeeping was conducted last November 15, 2016 from 7:45 in the morning to 5:00 in the afternoon by the Department of Trade and Industry –Pampanga Provincial Office in the University Hostel.

The said seminar was for the benefit of the non-teaching and teaching personnel to promote a stress-free, clutter-free and more organized work environment.

External Vice President, Engr. Rohel S. Serrano opened the program with a very detailed and informative message about how great a working environment can be if 5S is implemented. Vice President for Academic Affairs and Quality Assurance Manager, Engr. Reden M. Hernandez, shared his inspiring message highlighting the objectives of the seminar and the expectations of outcomes after the said event. The EVP and VPAA were accompanied by Mr. Paulo Lumanlan, ISO Coordinator.

The resource speaker of the Productivity Improvement Seminar and 5S of Good Housekeeping, Mr. Joseph Pineda, emphasized the importance and benefit of implementing 5S in the work environment, and how it can improve productivity of the non-teaching and teaching staff should it be sustained in office conduct.

The 5S of Good Housekeeping, “Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu, Shitsuke”, were carefully elaborated as to how they are applied in the office, and what benefits can be acquired in their implementation. To identify the current common actual practices of the university, an Interdepartmental Audit was done by the participants during the seminar. Through this activity, they came up with recommendations pertaining to what needs to be done to successfully apply the 5S principles in their respective offices.

To conclude the success of the seminar, Dr. Reynaldo C. Nicdao, Vice President for Finance, Administration and Auxiliary Services, on behalf of DHVTSU expressed warm his gratitude to the resource speaker, to the non-teaching and teaching personnel.
