A big, bold night at Acer ePinnacle Awards 2015

Everything went bold and big, and all who were present went high spirited as Acer Philippines, Inc. feted its top distributors and resellers during the 2015 edition of the Acer ePinnacle Awards, Acer’s annual awards rites in honor of its top sellers.

It was grand and swanky as guests went in their best and boldest black attire at the upper-class Chaos Club of Crown Hotel Manila in Parañaque City. The Acer ePinnacle Awards, now on its 8th year, have always been the perfect venue for the top IT giant to thank its partners for making the global tech brand remain a top IT brand in the Philippines despite stiff competition from other more established brands.

#tHRive 3: PMAP launches 53rd Annual Conference

The Philippines today is at the cusp of new and great opportunities.

With the impending rise to power of new national leaders, the emergence of a more vigilant Filipino people, the advent of the ASEAN integration, and overall improvements in various global and national indicators, the challenge is not anymore survival, or development, but to ride the momentum.

The call of the hour is to bring the country to new and greater heights, towards sustainable prosperity. The greater need is to deliver inclusive growth for all Filipinos. The mandate for PMAP is to strategically position people – Filipino human capital, as the main driver of the movement.

For this is the time to tHRive!

The People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP), the premiere organization of people managers and HR practitioners in the country, is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year and is coming up with bigger and more relevant initiatives and advocacies.
