Last Tuesday, October 19, 2015, CEOs, presidents of top-notch companies gathered at the Marriott Grand ballroom building in Pasay City to honor the finalist for this years Asia CEO Awards.
They’ve introduced a new award, Heart for OFWs Company of the Year, that acknowledges the tremendous leadership of companies whose advocacy centers on helping the OFWs and their beneficiaries here in the Philippines.
“It’s really a different category.” Bansan Choa, CEO of Iremit. “It’s not about the business size, business popularity or how much income you make, it’s really about social responsibility projects. This is about how many projects a particular company had to benefit the OFWs and also to benefit their families. Overall, this award is not really about how you do business but how you give back what you earn.”
Finalists for this category include: ACM Landholdings, Inc.; ASKI (Alalay Sa Kaunlaran) Global Ltd.; Ayannah Information Solutions, Inc.; PAG-IBIG Fund OFW Center; PJ Lhuillier Group of Companies (PJLGC); and The Global Filipino Investors, Inc.
“For the winner to improve the services to the OFWs and to the finalists to make it better to become a winner.” He added.
The awarding will be on November 11, 2015 at the Grand Ballroom of Marriott Hotel. The Asia CEO award is an initiative designed to recognize and reward CEOs and companies who have demonstrated a passion for excellence in every aspect of work, and a commitment to their business and their people.
