MERALCO has two great reasons to celebrate this Month.

First is the launching of their newest innovation – the MeralcO Virtual Engine APP or MOVE App

Second, Meralco was recognized as the 2012 Employer of the Year (EOY) during the 36th edition of the PMAP Awards.  The company became the third organization to receive the recognition for a second time, 32 years since it got the first award.  Unilab  (1979 and 2001) and Del Monte Philippines (1998 and 2003) are the other companies who accomplished the feat.

Meralco Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan himself led the delegation of the company who received the prestigious award on stage.

The 49th People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) Annual Conference was held at the Waterfront Hotel in Lahug, Cebu City last week with the theme, Revolutionizing People Management: Great Minds, Bold Changes, Unparalleled Results.

The 3-day event dubbed as the biggest gathering of HR professionals and people managers in the country reflects the wave of revolutions on the political front and how businesses and organizations share the same challenge of not only changing leaders but also changing the way leaders manage people.

Meralco President and CEO Oscar S. Reyes delivered a rousing speech to the delegates.

He talked about how innovation and technology has helped in the growth and development of the country and sent a challenge to everyone that day, “Much can be done in a relatively short period of time. Others have done it and we too can do it. But we should work for it.”

Education Secretary Armin A. Luistro gave an equally motivating talk and even confessed that PMAP is one of the few organizations that has convinced him to wear a suit as he is used to delivering speech in barong. He talks about leadership and describe a good leader as someone who knows “what happens in the heart and mind of those we are leading.”

Bank of Philippine Island, 1990 EOY winner, bags this year’s People Program of the Year (PPY) award.

The People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) is a professional, non-stock, not-for-profit organization of over 1,800 member companies and individual practitioners engaged or interested in HR/IR work.
