Held once every quarter, the council’s GMMs serve as valuable learning sessions that tackle key topics which are timely, relevant and strategic for the Lopez Group’s HR practitioners and their companies.
For the first quarter, in order to arm the HRs with the mindset of excellence and competitiveness, the HR Council took on the topic “Business Excellence and Global Competitiveness.”
Featured speakers were First Philippine Holdings Corporation chief sustainability officer Agnes de Jesus, who presented the topic “Sustainability Management”; EDC’s Disaster and Crisis lead Dr. Ted Esguerra, who impressed on the attendees the importance of disaster and crisis management; and Philippine Technological Council president Federico Monsada, who educated the group on ASEAN integration.
