Held in Henry Sy, Sr. Auditorium, 5th Floor St. Luke’s Medical Center, Global City, Taguig last April 28, 2014 (Monday). Was one of the enlightening afternoons that I had. Learning something new on something that is called IiP(Investors in People). One of the must have standards that a company should have.
We've learned the Philippines and UK Trade Partnerships which was discussed by Mr. Trevor Lewis Deputy Head of Mission, British Embassy. Creating an Empowering Culture in alignment with the IiP Standard which was shared by Dr. Edgardo R. Cortez, MD, President & CEO, St. Luke’s Medical Center (SLMC)

|Q & A Portion of the Program|
Integration and Closing
Mr. Gerardo A. Plana, CEO, IiP Philippines
Truly at the end of the Program I withheld a new perspective on people management and how it should be, what big and success companies do and what needs to be done and improved in an organization. I completely agree that IiP should be a standard that one company should strive to achieve and to progress with, as we all know. Every company's most important asset is their employee, and happy employees are productive employees.
