The Regional Conciliation and Mediation Branch-Cordillera Administrative Region proudly announces the conferment of a special award to the  Kaibigan Committee of SN Aboitiz Power-Benguet, Inc. (SNAPBI) and the Dap-ayan si John Hay of Camp John Hay Leisure, Inc., in the recently concluded 2021 Search for Outstanding Labor-Management Cooperation on December 15.

Dubbed as Responsiveness and Resilience in Times of Disruption, this special edition search was made to recognize the LMCs that have remained focused on improving workers’ welfare, sustaining corporate viability, and enhancing harmonious labor-management relations despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Both finalists from the Region grabbed the Enhanced Corporate Viability Award for small and large unorganized companies, respectively.   This recognition is given to LMCs for successfully utilizing the LMC as a channel for ensuring excellent performance, increasing comprehensiveness, improving employees’ well-being and satisfaction, and strong corporate social responsibility with pandemic responsive programs and activities against the backdrop of industrial peace.

The CJH Liesure Inc., through its Learning and Talent Development Manager, Mr. Elizandro A. Medrano, and SNAPBI’s Plant Support Services Sr. Manager, Ms. Rose White, extended their gratitude to the Branch for their continued presence and support/guidance to the LMCs in the region especially during this time of pandemic.

“The special award that we received (Enhanced Corporate Viability) symbolizes that if there is a harmonious labor and management partnership, especially in times of challenges and difficulties, nothing is impossible to be achieved,” Mr. Medrano continued as he congratulated all the winners.

“The LMC Search was a refreshing program for all because, despite COVID19, companies nationwide came together as one to promote collaboration & cooperation in the workplace,” added Ms. White as she expressed how proud SNAPBI is to participate in this endeavor.

 This biennial search for Outstanding LMC for Industrial Peace Award started in 1998,  in recognition of the significant role of the Labor-Management Cooperation program in the maintenance of Industrial Peace. Meanwhile, the Search for Outstanding Grievance Machinery for Industrial Peace commenced in 2013. This award is in recognition of the efforts of labor and management in resolving issues at the company level, thereby enhancing labor-management relations.

Unfortunately, the Branch has no entry for the 2021 Search on Outstanding GM.
