The third day of the PMAP Annual Conference wrapped up the entire conference in a meaningful way. Here are some of the highlights of Day 3 of the PMAP Annual Conference:
PSOF Investiture Ceremony
Day 3 of the Annual Conference began with the Investiture Ceremony for the new Associate Fellows and Fellows in People Management of the Philippine Society of Fellows in People Management (PSOF). The newly accredited AFPM and FPM members came from the Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Bukidnon and Zamboanga chapters.
Research Presentation on Employees' Perception on Family Responsive Workplace Practices and their Productivity
This was followed by the presentation of data from the PMAP Research Study on Employees’ Perception on Family Responsive Workplaces and their Productivity. Kim Patria of Investing in Women gave a short message and Dr. Cesar Baltazar and Dr. Aurorita Roldan of the PMAP Center for Research and Publications presented the results of the study conducted by PMAP in partnership with Investing in Women and the Australian Government. This was followed by a Call to Action from PMAP Executive Director Rene Gener, DPM.
Plenary Roundtable Discussion 5: Bridging Global and Local Paradigms on Kapwa
Plenary Roundtable Discussion 6: Bridging Global and Local Paradigms on Kapwa brought together a good mix of speakers who are successful in both the local and global scenes. Kapwa is a Filipino term that means “the other” yet despite it being a Filipino word, it can actually translate in practices being done in global or international companies. Haidee Enriquez, FPM, Chief HR Officer of Sitel PHANZ (Philippines, Australia and New Zealand), Angeline Tham, CEO of Angkas, and Mian Datu-David, VP and Business Unit Head of Beverage Business of Universal Robina Corporation, discussed how their companies deal with people may it be locally or globally.
Plenary Roundtable Discussion 6: The Future of the Philippine Workplace and Filipino Leadership According to Millennials
The last plenary roundtable discussion brought the focus to millennials, especially now that more millennials are in the workforce and are taking on leadership positions. Dae Lee, Managing Partner of the Fourth Wall, Nico Angelo Mallillin, Chief Employee Experience Officer of GCash, and Patt Soyao, Managing Director of Icon Executive Search are all millennials and are also leaders in their respective organizations. They discussed their experiences as millennial leaders and how millennials work in their respective organizations and how their generation can still work together with baby boomers, Gen Xers, and Generation Z alike.
Key Takeaways and Closing Ceremonies
After a quick lunch, PMAP Past President Bong Austero, DPM discussed the key takeaways synthesizing all the discussions since Day 1 of the conference. This also led to various conference resolutions and the closing of the conference by PMAP President Gerry Plana. Vice President Loi Echevarria thanked all the people who were behind the conference – the Annual Conference Directorate, the PMAP Board of Trustees, PMAP Chapter Presidents, and the PMAP Professional Staff who were all called on stage to join her.
Lastly, no PMAP Conference is complete without a raffle. Various prizes were raffled off in a fun game show-like manner which had members hoping to win major prizes such as cash and hotel accommodations.
Each year, the PMAP Annual Conference is always a much awaited and very eventful moment wherein every attendee learns a lot and has a great experience. We thank the delegates who took time to attend the conference as well as the various speakers, session chairs, sponsors and partners who made this event possible. We hope that you can join us next year for the 57th Annual Conference in July 2020 to be held at Iloilo City!
