ABS-CBN was named Asia's Best Employer Awards 2011 in recognition of the Kapamilya network’s valuable contribution in making it the most sought after employer, whose organizational framework covers being exemplary in learning and development initiatives, communicating distinctiveness in employee hiring, training and retention practices, and continuing innovation.
ABS-CBN was chosen after a research was done in every Asia-Pacific country by a team of independent professionals from different parts of Asia, which, after the research, submits its recommendations to a jury that identifies the final winners.
ABS-CBN President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) Charo Santos-Concio, on the other hand, was conferred the Woman Super Achiever Award given to “Outstanding Women who have the vision, flair, acumen and professionalism to demonstrate excellent leadership and management skills in an organization, making changes and achieving results."
Both Asia’s Best Employer Brand and Woman Super Achiever awards, hosted by the Employer Branding Institute, World HRD Congress, Stars of the Industry Group and CMO Asia, came with a trophy and a citation to recognize the valuable contribution made by ABS-CBN and Charo Santos-Concio, respectively.
The award ceremonies were held at the SUNTEC Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre last July 22, 2011.
Santos-Concio and Bong Osorio, ABS-CBN’s Head of Corporate Communication attended the affair.
