NWPC’s National Productivity Conference Webinar Series with the theme “Driving Productivity in the Better Normal” concluded on November 5, 2020 with a webinar on “Automation: Leading Practices in Transitioning to the New Normal.” With owner and co-founder of Session Groceries Ms. Iloisa Romaraog-Diga as resource person, she emphasized the importance of supporting and educating local farmers not only to become viable and sustainable economic units but, more importantly, contribute to achieving food security.
With this goal in mind, Session Groceries trained local farmers basic business processes and created an app to help local farmers connect with consumers “to support local agribusiness, promote a sustainable lifestyle and educate the local community on the benefits of eating fresh, locally grown food”.
“Payamanin ang Magsasakang Pilipino! Payamanin natin ang Pilipinas” and “Be a Hero by Helping the Heroes!” have been Session Groceries’ mantra which have inspired local farmers towards self-improvement and regaining pride and confidence in the farming industry.
In closing, Executive Director Maria Criselda R. Sy congratulated NWPC for the successful webinar series, having been attended by more than 5,000 participants via Zoom and more than 300,000 views in Facebook live. She also led the launching of NWPC’s new training module on Business Continuity Planning along with a video teaser on the new Productivity Toolbox module.
