Table 11 Sales Forecast
In this table, sales forecast is shown. The demand-supply gap is multiplied to the age percentage (78%) to get the captured market and from there sales forecast annually resulted by multiplying the price with the number of
captured market. From sales forecast, we can get the quantity to be produced by dividing the average daily sales by the price of the product.
Price is the most important element in the marketing mix because of its direct impact on the customers, in the company and in the economy. The proponents used Skimming strategy for this price study. It is selling the product at a high price, sacrificing high sales to gain high profit, therefore “skimming” the market. This kind of strategy is often used to target “early adopters” of a product. These early adopters are relatively less price-sensitive because either their need for the product is more than others or they understand the value of the product better than others.
As observed in the conducted survey, price is a noticeable factor – next to quality – affecting on why does customers buy facial masks. The proponents will start the price at 150.00 Php. The price was based on the prices of our competitors and the price that consumers most likely choose.

CRITERIA FOR SITE SELECTION IN McARTHUR HIGHWAY, VALENZUELA CITY
From the vague and unspecified details in McArthur Highway, Valenzuela City, searching for specific sites was conducted. Specific criteria are again established. * Space – it is the extent and the size of the site. It is stressed and is given consideration since such accounts the totality of the production and administrative area in which all machines and equipments are installed. Design of the store will accounts to the space provided. * Cost – cost is important to since in allocation of resources must be determined to minimize incurring expenditures. Cost is a burden for the business and that proper allocation and decision making for all incurring financial transaction is a challenge. Since site location is one of the many considerations for computing expenses, cost of the site must be carefully considered.
* Construction/ Renovation- after selection, the next phase is the construction or the renovation phase. Although it’s an activity after the site selection, but depicts a lot of aspect to be considered further, such as construction is more costly than renovation because construction involves building the entire store as well as it entails longer time frame however the advantage is that since construction present buying the entire site, then ownership and non-repetitive of cost transpire. On the other hand, renovation cost is applicable for site that is for lease or for rent. The advantage would be minimal cost than construction and shorter time frame of accomplishing however repetitive of cost (rental cost) for every period may occur and ownership is uncertain.
* Competitor- it is essential for all business prior to establishing a store is to determine the competitors, the products and services they offer to the market, their selling strategy and who are their buyers.
* Customer Analysis
Clients, often called as customers, are the recipients of goods and services the company proffers and in return a monetary value was given in exchange for every product and service rendered. Customer’s attitude, preferences, needs and wants must be carefully given an account in putting up a business, this is what marketing is all about. Selling is far different from marketing because the prior focuses upon the desires of the capitalist rather upon his potential customers. MARKETING PROGRAM

One of the several means of advertising that would be used by the sellers is print advertising, it is in which an advertisement is printed in paper, be it newspapers, magazines, newsletters, flyers, direct mail, or anything else that would be considered portable printable medium, the owners will distribute flyers to the customers and would print an ad on newspapers. Also, online advertising – an advertisement via Internet (World Wide Web) – it would be helpful for the sellers.

Types of Promotion
a. Integrated Marketing Communication
i. Advertising Objectives – This study considered two advertising objectives namely; informative and persuasive advertising. * Informative Advertising – Since the business is new to the market, advertising is carried out in an informative manner. It tends to help generate a good reputation. Informative advertising, seeks to tell the market about the product, explain how the product works, provide information on pricing, and build awareness of both the product and the company.
* Persuasive Advertising (Comparative) – This is a technique that demonstrates the superiority of one brand in a product category by comparing it implicitly or explicitly to another brand in the category. Here, objectives are to encourage the target audience to switch brands, make the purchase, and create a preference in the market for the product as opposed to its competition. Advertising of this nature is required in highly competitive markets, where a range of products compete directly with each other. In such circumstances businesses often seek to differentiate their product through Comparison Advertising – either directly or indirectly comparing its product to that of its competitors.
For the pricing strategy, the proponents decided to use Price Skimming. It is pricing strategy in which a marketer sets relatively high price for a product or service to allow the firm to recover its sunk costs quickly before competition steps in. the proponents set the product introductory price to Php 100.00. Then on the second year, there will be a 10% increase on the succeeding years.
The starting price is based on the survey in which people tend to buy facial masks that price is ranging from Php 81 – Php 150.
The proponents chose a space at MJAR Commercial Building located at McArthur Highway, Valenzuela City to manufacture facial masks, put their products on display and sell it to consumers.
The aspect identifies whether the product could be produced at the highest possible quality level with minimum cost.
It deals with the kind of business and product that wants to establish. It specifies the product, the manufacturing processes, store location and lay out, and the equipments to be used, the size and cost of the building and its facilities, the raw materials to be used and labor requirement needed in the firm.
1. To clearly state the general description about the product and its composition 2. To show the raw materials needed and its projected cost. 3. To show the cost of packaging and its projected cost.
4. To present the manufacturing process of the product including Flow Process Chart, the Technical description of the product. 5. To be able to present the uses of the finished product, material source of the product and the packaging design. 6. To show the plant layout.
7. To state the physical resource requirement of the business, Production Tools, Office Supplies and Equipments, Furniture and Fixtures, Cleaning and Sanitary Supplies, Maintenance, Medical and Delivery Expense. 8. To state the utilities expenses of the company including telephone and internet expense, electricity and water expense and their projected consumption and waste management.
Rice Facial Mask is being introduced by JAR Enterprise to bring back the glow in everyone’s faces. It will be made out of uncooked rice, calamansi juice extract, honey, and Vitamin E oil. All ingredients used in making the product are common in the Philippines. The proponents chose this kind of product because it has a capability to improve skin complexion and can eliminate impurities and at the same time, the raw materials are not difficult to find because they are abundant in the Philippines.
All the components in the product have great benefits and are very helpful in solving skin problems on face. The product does not contain any kind of chemicals or preservatives because the proponents wanted to maintain the ingredient’s healing properties on skin naturally. Vitamin E oil, Honey and Calamansi act as natural preservatives and helps to prolong the shelf life of the product.
When all these ingredients combined, a facial mask will be made to help whiten, exfoliate, rejuvenate, soften and solve almost all types of skin problems.
PROPERTIES OF THE PRODUCT
Rice/ Rice Flour (Figure 22)
Rice is a much-overlooked skin care product. Rice helps to smooth and soften skin, dissipating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and evening out skin tone. It is also good for fighting blemishes.
Rice contains a high concentration of PABA (para aminobenzoic acid), a very good sunscreen. It contains two other sun protecting agents – ferulic acid and allantoin. Ferulic acid is an antioxidant. Scientists have found that when ferulic acid is added to Vitamin C and E, its sun protection ability doubled. Allantoin is a good anti-inflammatory agent. It soothes sunburns and also promotes the skin’s repair.
It is prepared by grinding the broken rice grains during milling. Rice flour helps to treat wrinkles, pigmentation and blemishes. When one tablespoon of rice flour is mixed with two tablespoons of yogurt (nonfat), it serves as homemade skin cleaning milk. It is an effective ingredient to clear the skin.
Honey (Figure 23)
Honey has lots of enzymes that are like natural antibiotics. Honey is easily absorbed by the skin and has lots of antioxidants. Honey as a basic ingredient in a facial mask furnishes many skin care remedies. Honey helps to cure acne, scars, wounds, wrinkles and even dry skin.
Skin Benefits of Honey
* Honey has antibacterial properties, which helps fight acne and pimples. * Honey is also antiseptic. When honey is diluted with water, it produces hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is an antimicrobial agent and is used as a mild antiseptic. * Honey is a good cleanser for skin. It soak ups impurities from the pores of the skin, leaving your skin clear and clean. * Honey is a very effective moisturizer for skin. It retains moisture making your skin radiant, soft and supple. * Honey properties protect your skin under the sun and assist the skin to rejuvenate and stay young. * Honey antioxidant properties make it capable to fight against skin damage and skin aging and prevent wrinkles.
Vitamin E Oil (Figure 24)
Vitamin E oil can be used to cleanse the skin as a toning agent. It cleans away the grime, dead cells and debris that sit on the top layer of your face and make your complexion look dull and tired. An additional benefit of vitamin E oil is it is a “universal cleanser,” because it is appropriate for all skin types. Vitamin E oil is also a moisturizer. For skin to maintain its suppleness and elasticity, it must be well-hydrated. Vitamin E oil can help retain your skin’s natural moisture by locking it in. It is appropriate for all skin types, but it is especially beneficial if your skin is dry. You should apply it on a regular basis for a soft, smooth appearance.
The natural aging process causes your skin to lose its firmness and elasticity, as cell turnover and collagen production begins to slow down. The effects of the aging process are exacerbated by things like exposure to the elements, a poor diet and pollution. The results are saggy skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E contains powerful antioxidants that are necessary to fight the free radicals that cause damage on the cellular level.
According to the National Institute on Aging, exposure to the sun contributes to several skin conditions, such as reddening, dryness, freckling, age spots, skin tags and breakdown of the elasticity of the skin. Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin E oil, by itself, can offer some protection from the sun’s damaging, ultraviolet rays.
Calamansi (Figure 25)
One of the natural benefits of calamansi juice is it acts as a natural skin bleaching agent for the maintenance of healthy skin. The juice or extract from the calamansi fruit is effectively used for both face and skin without irritation. However, the extract should only be applied on face twice a week to avoid over acidity. Using natural fruits and vegetables to maintain a good health and beauty is the best way to avoid harmful side effects of chemically made products. In addition, calamansi is far cheaper when compared to other over the counter beauty and health products but with the similar benefits.

PLANT LAYOUT (Figure 29)
Capacity Level of Production
There are two machines to be used for the production of JAR Enterprise’s FaceLight Rice Facial Mask, blender machine and the filling machine. The blender machine is used to blend all ingredients until paste-like texture is achieved. The filling machine is used to fill up the bottle, the measurement
is 90g per product. The average useful life of these machines is 8 – 10 years.
The owners, in actual operation will be the laborers in producing the said demand. There is 8 labor hours per day from Monday to Friday (5 working days).
The laborer will start working at 8am and will end at 5pm with a 1 hour lunch break. The workers have a total of 8 working hours.
Number of Operating Days per Year
The number of operating days is the number of working days per week multiplied by number of weeks per year subtracted to 25 days (legal holidays).
No.of Operating Days per Year = 5 daysweek × 52 weeksyear -25 legal holidays
= 235 days / year
Output per day
From the gathered data from the time and motion study table, for every batch of finished product we can produce 100 finished products for 3 hours. Every worker has 8 working hours a day, this total working hour is then divided to the time consumed in producing per batch of finished products, 2 hours, which results to 2.7 production rate. This production rate is now multiplied to output per batch which is 200 finished products per batch to get the total output per day.
Production Rate= 8 working hours per day3 hours
Total Output per Day = 2.67 x 100 = 267 outputs per day (90g)
The cycle time is the length of time required for producing a bottle of rice facial mask. To compute for the cycle time, divide the operating time to the output required.
Cycle Time = Operating TimeAverage Output
= 480 minutes 267 bottles
= 1.79 minutes per bottles
FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED IN PLANT SIZE
Factors to be considered in determining plant size production capacity are the expected growth of market share since this would determine the demand and supply needed for rice facial mask, also the production is dependent on the demand and supply consolidation. And the depreciation of the machines, it is important to determine the useful life of machineries; proper maintenance should be made in order to extend the life of the machines.
MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENTS
Different kinds of machines and equipments are needed in mass producing rice facial mask. A grinding machine, blending machine, filling machine and weighing scale are needed in producing quality rice facial mask. Also the office supplies, furniture and fixtures, and sanitary supplies that are also needed are listed below.

This chapter determines the specific financing requirements of the project with respect to the types and costs of the assets to be acquired. It will identify the alternative sources of financing including the terms and conditions, if any and the amount of financing from each source.
This will show the relationship between the capital to be invested and expected profit known as return on investment. It will show the financial condition of the business reflected in the Balance Sheet, Income Statement and Statement of Cash Flow.
The proponents put together their effort to make this study be sensible, conservative and comprehensive.
This study attempts to make the following objective:
* To make a realistic, complete and conservative estimate of the total costs to set up a project and its needed capital. * To determine the amount of capital required including the sources and terms of borrowings if any. * To determine the projects income performance and the reliability and liquidity of its financial situation. * To make a sound and realistic projections of operating income and costs.
Different assumptions have been formulated to help in the appropriate presentation of each and every item in the financial statements. This will support in the computation of projected financial statements.
1) The initial capital will be PhP 2,000,000.00.
2) The capital contributions will be based on the contribution table above. 3) The projected Financial Statement will cover 10 years. 4) The capital contributions are coming from the partners’ personal loan from relative and from personal bank account.

2. Finance Officer
A financial manager is responsible for providing financial advice and support to clients and colleagues to enable them to make sound business decisions. Specific work environments vary considerably and include both public and private sector organisations, such as multinational corporations, retailers, financial institutions, NHS trusts, charities, small manufacturing companies and universities. Financial considerations are at the root of all major business decisions. Clear budgetary planning is essential for short and long-term future planning, and companies need to know the financial implications of any decision before proceeding. In addition, care must be taken to ensure that financial practices are in line with all statutory legislation and regulations. Financial managers may also be known as financial analysts or business analysts. Typical work activities
The roles of financial managers vary significantly. The generic nature of the
job title can be misleading and job descriptions should be scrutinised carefully as the level and scope of the responsibilities involved in any role coming under the banner of financial management can vary enormously. In larger companies for instance, the role is more concerned with strategic analysis; in smaller organisations, a financial manager may be responsible for the collection and preparation of accounts. Typical activities include:
* providing and interpreting financial information;
* monitoring and interpreting cash flows and predicting future trends; * analysing change and advising accordingly;
* formulating strategic and long-term business plans;
* researching and reporting on factors influencing business performance; * analysing competitors and market trends;
* developing financial management mechanisms that minimise financial risk; * conducting reviews and evaluations for cost-reduction opportunities; * managing a company’s financial accounting, monitoring and reporting systems; * liaising with auditors to ensure annual monitoring is carried out; * developing external relationships with appropriate contacts, e.g. auditors, solicitors, bankers and statutory organisations such as the Inland Revenue; * producing accurate financial reports to specific deadlines; * managing budgets;
* arranging new sources of finance for a company’s debt facilities; * supervising staff;
* keeping abreast of changes in financial regulations and legislation.
3. Production Head
A production manager is involved with the planning, coordination and control of manufacturing processes. They ensure that goods and services are produced efficiently and that the correct amount is produced at the right cost and level of quality. The scope of the job depends on the nature of the production system: jobbing, mass, process, or batch production. Many companies are involved in several types of production, adding to the complexity of the job. Most production managers are responsible for both human and material resources. The job role is also referred to as operations
Typical work activities
The exact nature of the work will depend on the size of the employing organisation. However, tasks typically involve: * overseeing the production process, drawing up a production schedule; * ensuring that the production is cost effective;
* making sure that products are produced on time and are of good quality; * working out the human and material resources needed;
* drafting a timescale for the job;
* estimating costs and setting the quality standards;
* monitoring the production processes and adjusting schedules as needed; * being responsible for the selection and maintenance of equipment; * monitoring product standards and implementing quality-control programmes; * liaising among different departments, e.g. suppliers, managers; * working with managers to implement the company’s policies and goals; * ensuring that health and safety guidelines are followed; * supervising and motivating a team of workers;
* reviewing worker performance;
* identifying training needs.
A production manager is involved in the pre-production (planning) stage as well as the production (control and supervision) stage. A large part of production management involves dealing with people, particularly those who work in your team. Production managers are also involved with product design and purchasing. In a small firm you may have to make many of the decisions yourself, but in a larger organisation planners, controllers, production engineers and production supervisors will assist you. In progressive firms, the production manager’s role tends to be more closely integrated with other functions, such as marketing, sales and finance. 4. Marketing Manager
Marketing executives are involved in developing marketing campaigns to promote a product, service or idea. The role includes planning, advertising, public relations, organising events, product development, distribution,
sponsorship and research. The work is often challenging, varied and exciting. As many organisations have marketing departments, marketing executives can be found in both the private and public sectors, ranging from the financial, retailing and media industries to voluntary and public sector organisations. The responsibilities of a marketing executive will vary, depending on the size of the organisation and sector, and whether the focus is on selling a product or service or on raising awareness of an issue that affects the public. Marketing executives may also be known as marketing officers or coordinators. Typical work activities
Marketing executives contribute to, and develop, integrated marketing campaigns. Tasks typically involve: * liaising and networking with a range of stakeholders including customers, colleagues, suppliers and partner organisations; * communicating with target audiences and managing customer relationships; * sourcing advertising opportunities and placing adverts in the press – local, regional, national and specialist publications – or on the radio, depending on the organisation and the campaign; * managing the production of marketing materials, including leaflets, posters, flyers, newsletters, e-newsletters and DVDs; * writing and proofreading copy;
* liaising with designers and printers;

* supporting the marketing manager and other colleagues.
5. Production Workers
Production workers typically work in a manufacturing, warehouse or service setting, and can have a variety of responsibilities depending on the type of environment they work in. Production workers typically work in labor intensive positions, continually repeating a process in a team environment to mass produce a product or service. In most cases, production workers are required to have a high school diploma. Depending on the environment they’re working in, they may be required to have certification or training in a specific technology or process. Production workers may be required to stand on their feet for long periods of time, and the ability to lift more than 35 pounds.

RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION PROGRAM
The organization must plan what type of staff and positions are needed in the short and long term, based on organizational goals and action plans. This plan informs recruitment decisions and helps new hires integrate into the organization’s culture; engender trust, cooperation, and motivation; and be effective in contributing to the organization’s achievements. This is the process that introduces new hires to the systems, structures, policies, and communication flow in the organization. Recruitment is the process of identifying that the organization needs to employ someone up to the point at which application forms for the post have arrived at the organization. Selection then consists of the processes involved in choosing from applicants a suitable candidate to fill a post.
Training consists of a range of processes involved in making sure that job holders have the right skills, knowledge and attitudes required to help the organization to achieve its objectives. Before selecting the workers for the company, the proponents will first assess the need for and establish the purpose of the position. This will be done by understanding clearly the company’s goals and mission statement prior to conducting a search for qualified individuals. The organization first builds a staffing plan based on organizational goals and action plans and on needs in the programmatic sectors. Then, finance is brought in for their knowledge of available funding. Finally, a staffing plan is put into place. The staffing plan allows the organization to plan in advance the resources needed for recruitment and hiring for the positions indicated in it. A staffing plan does not always require hiring from outside the organization. Realigning or promoting internal staff is also an option.
The HR manager/designate prepares a detailed job description for each position to be filled. The job description specifies the responsibilities, required qualifications and skills, reporting relationships, and other important aspects of the position based on the organization’s strategy, goals, and plans. A well-written job description helps the organization create criteria to ensure that only candidates with the right training and experience are considered. The development of job descriptions for new positions makes it easier to establish selection criteria and evaluate applicants. Once the right person is hired, the job description is a valuable management tool to help set performance expectations, evaluate performance, and identify staff development, learning needs, and approaches The hiring process is the main part of the recruitment process. Make the job vacancy available to internal and external pools of candidates by posting the job to bulletin boards, email bulletins, media outlets, etc. Once the organization has identified a pool of qualified applicants, the selection process includes analyzing applicant documents, interviewing, testing and background investigation, and making an employment offer. Selection processes are as follows: 1. Analyzing Applicant Forms (Shortlisting)
In this stage, staff with HR responsibilities, “analyze the candidates’ application forms and CVs/résumés to identify applicants who fit the minimum selection criteria.” (Society for Human Resource Management Learning System. (2009).
Module Two: Workforce Planning and Employment. Page 2-169.) Application forms should include information that will point to the applicant’s ability to perform the position successfully. In other words, the application should include information beyond biodata. Applicant qualifications should always be compared to the job requirements identified in the job description.
A carefully selected interview panel should interview the shortlisted candidates. Panel interviews that include participants with diverse backgrounds from the organization mitigate the chances of bias, favoritism, corruption, etc. A panel should consist of the person responsible for HR functions (e.g., recruitment), the general manager, and others as appropriate. Interviews are designed to probe the interviewer’s areas of interest in order to determine how well the candidate meets the criteria of the position and the needs of the organization.
It is important that the interviewers are properly prepared to conduct the interview, as the interview is a critical selection device. “Some organizations conduct a series of interviews ranging from short prescreening interviews (20 minutes or less) to long in-depth interviews (one hour or more).
Interviewing styles depend upon the preference of the interviewers and the situation, but consistency with each candidate for the position must be maintained.” (Society for Human Resource Management Learning System (2009).
Module Two: Workforce Planning and Employment. Page 2-172) The panel should have the list of pre-determined questions to ask, which may be accompanied by a rating system. Interview questions should include behavioral questions. The following are what will be done on a panel interview:
• The same questions should be asked of each candidate for a given position. • Panel interview members should not interrupt each other and should ask the questions in a pre-determined sequence. • Provide the applicant with an opportunity to ask questions. • Tell the applicant when a decision is expected to be made and how it will be communicated. 3. Testing (skills assessment)
Tests help to reveal more about the applicant’s pertinent skills and knowledge for the particular position. For example, testing is often conducted for positions in accounting, driving, and report writing because these positions require a particular set of technical skills. 4. Reference and background checks
Based on the evaluation of the applicants, recommendations are made for the top candidates for the position. In order to avoid hiring unqualified candidates (e.g., those without the requested education, skills, or experience) or candidates who present risks (e.g., theft, fraud, or misconduct), the organization would check references thoroughly. Preferably, three references should be checked. References should be obtained from former employers or supervisors. Organization would ask for permission from the applicant to conduct reference checks. The Organization may also conduct background checks. This may include verification of academic credentials, credit history checks, criminal records, and other records.
Local laws concerning background checks should be consulted.
5. Employment offer and employment contract
An employment offer would be immediately followed after the final decision to hire a candidate. An employment offer makes the hiring decision official and is formally communicated through an offer letter. The organization may verbally extend the job offer and at the same time discuss the details of the offer. “An employment contract is a legally binding agreement that explains the relationship between the employer and employee.”(Society for Human Resource Management Learning System (2009).
Module Two: Workforce Planning and Employment. Page 2-195).
The employment contract should be written to clarify employment terms that can otherwise be subject to misunderstanding and misinterpretation. The following are recommended to be included in the employment contract: • Terms and conditions of employment, including timeframe and working hours • Length of probationary period
• Job description
• Confidentiality and nondisclosure terms
• Compensation and benefits
• Reference to policies
• Terms of resignation and termination
• Appropriate signatures and date
6. Personnel File
A personnel filing system should be maintained. Each employee’s file should consist of all documents related to the employment relationship such as contract, job description, Cv/résumé, warning letters, leave documents, and performance plans and appraisal. The documents should be accessible to employees upon request but otherwise kept confidential.
7. Orientation and Onboarding Process
It is designed to introduce new hires to the organization, fellow employees, their immediate supervisors, and the policies, practices, and objectives of the organization directly related to the employee’s job function. It includes frequent feedback, relationship building, and mentoring. It is designed to help the new hire integrate into the culture and become a productive member of the organization. An orientation and onboarding process not only helps new hires to understand job-specific information, but also provides organizational information to help the new hire fully understand the organization.
TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The purpose of training and management development programs is to improve employee capabilities and organizational capabilities. When the organization invests in improving the knowledge and skills of its employees, the investment is returned in the form of more productive and effective employees. Training and development programs may be focused on individual performance or team performance.
The management will then undergo several seminars and training programs for the hired applicants to know their rights, duties and responsibilities and other information such as their wages, the company’s rules and regulations and the benefits that they will receive from the company. For the positions of production workers, after the employees are hired, they are required to undergo training for one (1) month until they are certified for a task and be assigned in a workstation, with allowance. This training is important for them to be familiar with the equipments and the basic operation process. Several trainings will be done after three (3) months for career development.
Also, introducing new products requires new training program for all employees for them to be knowledgeable about the processes and operations.
This training and development program is for all the employees, new and old, for them to enhance their skills and knowledge and be particular about the mission and goals of the company. This is for the company to grow and for the employees to be better and more competent. BENEFITS, WAGES AND INCENTIVES
This company relies on their employees to contribute to the company’s financial success because the products made by the workers and the service of staff members are the frontline to customers. Individuals with good personalities and solid work ethics truly can increase the company’s sales because customers feel more comfortable, secure and happy when the products are made with credibility – means they will be more likely to spend money in your salon and become a loyal client.
To an employee, salaries and hourly wages play a big role in their overall contentment with a job because they want—and deserve—to be compensated for their hard work.
To give a short run down, the following are government-mandated benefits: Social Security System (SSS) contributions, Philippine Health Insurance (PhilHealth) contributions, Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-ibig Fund) contributions, 13th month pay, service incentive leave, meal and rest periods, overtime pay, special holiday/rest day rates, and night shift differentials. Other more common benefits that are not mandated but are given by a lot of companies are: holiday bonus, mid-year bonus, and paid holiday and vacation leaves. * Php 426.00 per day as the minimum wage
* Social Security Sytem (SSS) – The Social Security System was created by the Philippine government. All employees hired by private companies are required to become an SSS member (Republic Act No. 8282).
This system aims to protect its members for when they are unable to work such as sickness, disability, maternity, old age and death, or other such contingencies not stated but will result in loss of income or results to a financial burden. When an employee gets sick, SSS will reimburse them with their equivalent daily salary multiplied by the number of days absent. When a female member gives birth, SSS gives the employee 2 months worth of salary to compensate for the time she will be off from work due to childbirth. The SSS also serves as a pension plan for its members as SSS returns members’ monthly contributions after they retire from work. The amount of SSS monthly contribution is determined from the actual monthly salary an employee receives. 30% of total monthly contribution is deducted from an employee’s salary, while 70% is subsidized by the employer. * Philippine Health Insurance (PhilHealth) – The Philippine Health Insurance Enterprise is the medical insurance company of the Philippines. All employees are required to be contributors of this service (Republic Act 7875).
Members are given health and hospitalization subsidies should they or a dependent be hospitalized. Monthly contributions are based on actual employee monthly salaries and the amount of employee contribution is matched equally by the employer. * Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-ibig Fund) – Employers are also required to contribute, on behalf of their employees, to the Home Development Mutual Fund (Republic Act 7835).
This company provides the lowest interest housing and land acquisition loans to its members that are payable for up to 30 years. This gives every Filipino worker an opportunity to own a house in easy-payment plans that can directly be deducted from their monthly wages. * 13th Month Pay – Based on Presidential Decree No. 851, all Filipino employees are entitled to a year-end bonus equivalent to one (1) month salary regardless of the nature of their employment. The 13th month pay is to be given no later than December 24 of every year a worker is employed. * Service Incentive Leave – According to Article 95 of the Labor Code of the Philippines, an employee who has worked for at least one (1) year in a company is entitled to five (5) days leave of absence, with pay, every year. If the employee does not avail of these paid leaves, the company may opt to have them do a mandatory leave of absence, with pay, or convert these unavailed paid leaves to their cash equivalents, to be given at the end of each year.
* Meal and Rest Periods – According to Article 83 of the Labor Code of the Philippines, employees are entitled to one (1) hour break for meals on an eight-hour work day. Employees are also entitled to adequate rest periods in the morning and afternoon, of short durations, that will be counted as hours worked. These rest periods normally last for 15 minutes and can be used by employees as coffee or snack breaks. * Overtime Pay and Holiday/Rest Day Pay – Under Article 87, an employee who renders over eight (8) hours of service per day shall be given an overtime pay which is equivalent to his regular hourly wage plus at least twenty-five percent (25%) thereof. Under Article 93, if an employee is asked to work on their scheduled rest day or on a non-working holiday, the employee shall be paid an additional compensation of at least thirty percent (30%) of his regular wage. * Holiday/Christmas Bonus – This is given in December, on top of the 13th month pay. This is considered as the company’s Christmas gift to their employees. * Mid-Year Bonus – This is given in June, when the country’s school year starts.
This is to assist employees in school enrollment fees for their children. This is also known as an educational assistance plan. * Maternity Leave – daily maternity benefit equivalent to one hundred percent (100%) of her average salary credit for sixty (60) days or seventy-eight (78) days. Under Article 133(a) of the Labor Code, “Every employer shall grant to any pregnant woman employees who has rendered an aggregate service of at least six months for the last twelve months, maternity leave of at least two weeks prior to the expected date of delivery and another four weeks after normal delivery or abortion, with full pay based on her regular or average weekly wages.” * Paternity leave – Republic Act No. 8187, otherwise known as the “Paternity Leave Act of 1996” permits a married male employee in the private and public sectors to take a leave for seven (7) days, with full pay, for the first 4 deliveries of his legitimate spouse with whom he is cohabiting provided:
(1) The employee is lawfully married, (2) He is cohabiting with his legitimate wife, (3) His wife is pregnant or has delivered a child or suffered a miscarriage or abortion, (4) Must be of the first four deliveries, (5) The employer is notified within reasonable time of the pregnancy and of date of expected delivery (not required in case of abortion or miscarriage), (6) The benefit is availed of not later than 60 days after delivery. * Parental leave for solo parents – 7 days leave with pay. * Salaries are given every 15th and 30th of the month.
PERFORMANCE AND APPRAISAL PROGRAM
A performance appraisal program (PA program) is important to employees’ professional development, to meeting the firm’s goals or objectives and, ultimately, to contributing to the company’s or firm’s bottom line. The primary reason for having a PA program is to monitor employees’ performance, motivate staff and improve company morale. When employees are aware that the company is mindful of their performance and that they could be rewarded with merit increases and promotions, they are motivated to work harder. A well-developed staff is more likely to be proactive, productive and resourceful, all of which helps give the company a competitive edge, from improved customer relations to increased profits.
Objectives for performance appraisal policy can best be understood in terms
of potential benefits. Mohrman, Resnick-West and Lawler (1989) identify the following: * Increase motivation to perform effectively
* Increase staff self-esteem
* Gain new insight into staff and supervisors
* Better clarify and define job functions and responsibilities * Develop valuable communication among appraisal participants * Encourage increased self-understanding among staff as well as insight into the kind of development activities that are of value * Distribute rewards on a fair and credible basis
* Clarify organizational goals so they can be more readily accepted * Improve institutional/departmental manpower planning, test validation, and development of training programs Appraisal Policy Statement
Each employee should participate in a regular process of performance appraisal. It is recommended that individual performance evaluation plans be developed for each staff member. Much like the individual staff development plan, each performance evaluation should be developed cooperatively between each staff member and her/his supervisor. All positions should undergo a periodic review each year. During this review, the duties and responsibilities of the position should be analyzed to ensure that they match the mission and goals of the institution, division, and department. Performance evaluation plans should be changed to match any changes in job descriptions, missions, and individual goals of the staff member. Because of the importance of performance evaluation, all staff members should undergo two formal evaluations per year. In addition, it is expected that supervisors meet with individual staff members on a regular basis to discuss performance and expected behaviors within the department.

The primary objective of an organization is to set – up relationships and procedures in such a way that employees can obtain the best results from their efforts. In an organization, jobs are generally organized into teams, units, departments, divisions, and so forth thereby combining individual efforts and producing more than individuals could produce separately.
The business relies on the hands of the management in order to be successful. This part of the study involves the forms of the organization
and kind of officers who will work in the firm.
FORM OF OWNERSHIP
The business’ legal form of organization is General Partnership. The proponents decided to have partnership as a legal form of business because it is easier to establish as compared to a corporation. Also, having a partnership is advantageous since it is easier to raise capital for the business. Lastly, we are a general partnership because we want equality in the business. Since each one of us established the business, each one is liable to the business. Partnership, nature:
Within the context of Philippine law, a “partnership” is treated as an artificial being created by operation of law with a legal personality separate and distinct from the partners thereof. It proceeds from the concept that persons may be allowed to pool their resources and funds to engage in the pursuit of a common business objective without necessarily organizing themselves into a corporation, upon which the law imposes a much higher form of regulation, limitation and standards. Philippine partnerships operate under the concept of unlimited liability and unless otherwise agreed upon by the partners, each one of them acts as manager and agent of the partnership and consequently, their acts bind the partnership. (Chan Robles Virtual Law Library,
http://www.chanrobles.com/legal5cc1c.htm#.USHfwh1EG8A) Partnership, governing law:
Unlike corporations whose governing law is a special law – the Corporation Code of the Philippines, partnerships in the Philippines are governed by and covered under Articles 1767 to 1867 of the Civil Code of the Philippines [circa 1950]. These are the provisions of law which govern all aspects of partnerships – from their creation, formation, existence, operation and management to their dissolution and liquidation, including the obligations of the partners to one another, to the public or third persons and to the government. (Chan Robles Virtual Law Library,
http://www.chanrobles.com/legal5cc1c.htm#.USHfwh1EG8A) Partnership, how formed; registration requirement:
Partnerships are required to be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC]. Registration is done by filing the Articles of Partnership with the SEC. The Articles of Partnership set forth all the terms and conditions mutually agreed by the partners thereto. More specifically, the documents required are as follows:
 Proposed Articles of Partnership;
 Name Verification Slip;
 Bank Certificate of Deposit;
 Alien Certificate of Registration, Special Investors Resident Visa or proof of other types of visa [in case of foreigner];
 Proof of Inward Remittance [in case of non-resident aliens]. It bears noting that corporations are not allowed by law to become partners in a partnership. (Chan Robles Virtual Law Library, http://www.chanrobles.com/legal5cc1c.htm#.USHfwh1EG8A) Partners, liability:
As a general rule, the liability of partners in a partnership organization is unlimited in the sense that the partnership creditors may run after them for any and all of their assets and property in payment of the partnership debts. Should one of the partners defray all liabilities of the partnership, he is entitled to be reimbursed by the other partners for their respective shares therein. In the case, however, of limited partnerships, the law allows the limitation of the liability of certain partners to the extent of the amount contributed to the partnership. (Chan Robles Virtual Law Library,
http://www.chanrobles.com/legal5cc1c.htm#.USHfwh1EG8A) Partnership, dissolution:
Philippine law allows the dissolution of partnership for any reason, provided such dissolution does not amount to a breach of contract or is prejudicial to third parties. The death of a partner or the unauthorized transfer of ownership of his share in the partnership [in case there is a limitation to this effect] results in the dissolution thereof. In other words, any change in the composition of the partnership, unless so allowed, will result in the dissolution thereof. Consequently, the remaining partners may form a new partnership with less or more partners. (Chan Robles Virtual Law Library,
http://www.chanrobles.com/legal5cc1c.htm#.USHfwh1EG8A) JAR Enterprise is a Partnership form of business organization that is owned by three (3) person who will share their skills, talents and determination in making this business possible and successful. This three (3) investors will finance the forming of FaceLight who will share money, time, effort and abilities. Sec. 2 of The Enterprise Code of the Philippines defines Enterprise as “A Enterprise is an artificial being created by operation of law, having the right of succession and the powers, attributes and properties expressly authorized by law or incident to its existence.” “A Enterprise is an entity separate and distinct from its stockholders. While not in fact and in reality a person, the law treats the Enterprise as though it were a person by process of fiction or by regarding it as an artificial person distinct and separate from its individual stockholders.” (Remo, Jr. v. IAC, 172 SCRA 405 (1989)).
The transfer of the corporate assets to the stockholder is not in the nature of a partition but is a conveyance from one party to another. (a Stockholders of F. Guanzon and Sons, Inc. v. Register of Deeds of Manila, 6 SCRA 373 (1962)).
Most city and state government require business owners to obtain business licenses and permits. In some instances the government may also require to secure special licenses or permits, depending on the kind of business.
Many businesses are also required to obtain permits. Local permits requirements vary by jurisdiction. Failure to have the proper permits may prevent the business from opening and could result in fines or event being shut down.
Steps in applying for business permits.
1. Research the permits you need through the appropriate business. 2. Make sure the business complies with the ordinances in your area. 3. Obtain the proper application forms and set-up proper application procedure (in some case this might be an on-site inspection) 4. File the necessary
paperwork to obtain the relevant permit(s) and pay any filing fees.
