As part of the increasing demand to inform the workers of the benefits and services under the Employees’ Compensation Law, the Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC) launched a self-produced podcast.

The self-titled show, “ECC Podcast” was conceptualized by the Information and Public Assistance Division as part of its ‘Microlearning’ program which aims to provide short, concise yet comprehensive information material that tackles the Employees’ Compensation Program (ECP) in bits and pieces with only singular subject matter as its topic.

Ma. Cecilia E. Maulion, chief of the Information and Public Assistance Division said, “To avoid loading our clients with too much information about the EC Program, we came up with a project ‘ECC Podcast’ which directly provides a single information on our programs. It is more laser-focused and easier to comprehend.”

ECC Executive Director Atty. Kaima Via Velasquez said, “This new project is a good opportunity for ECC to capture niche market segment—the yuppies, for instance, which, normally, are the listeners of podcast shows. This will also widen our reach in terms of information dissemination on the EC Program.”

With ‘ECC Podcast’, ECC will have its own platform which is free and available anytime, anywhere with the aid of the Internet.

Currently, ECC podcast has two episodes which are available on ECC’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and ECC website. It is expected to air more episodes that cover the benefits and services provided under the EC Program.
