NASSAU, The Bahamas - Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert Minnis officially opened the Public Employment Services Unit's (PES) "One Stop Service Center" of the Department of Labour, Monday July 2, 2018.  The centre will be used as the Ministry of Labour's link between potential employees and employers and will ensure that job seekers have better access to the necessary tools to enable them to seek and find jobs.  Prime Minister Minnis said the centre will allow potential employers more options when they are seeking staff. The Ministry of Labour has upgraded its online portal as a critical element of its One Stop Service Center, the Prime Minister said. To prepare for the upgrade, the Department of Labour participated in international training in Mexico, South Korea and South Florida. Minister of Labour Senator the Hon. Dion Foulkes said "I strongly believe that this launch is a testimony of the government's commitment to assisting Bahamians to find jobs and hence better their lives."  Prime Minister Minnis is pictured cutting the ribbon to the entrance of the unit.
