Meralco reaps 12 business awards

The Meralco group ran off with 12 awards for customer service initiatives, corporate social responsibility and thought leadership to exemplify its excellence in the global stage.

At the recently concluded 2022 Stevie International Business Awards, the group brought home two golds, four silvers, and one bronze for various initiatives and programs geared towards supporting Filipinos and contributing to the improvement of their lives.

Dominating the Best Use of Social Media-Covid-19 -related information category, the “Meralco Corporate Partners Viber Community: Engagement when connectivity is a must” was given a gold award.

The viber community served as the company’s channel in providing relevant updates to its enterprise customers that may impact their business operations.

Another gold went to the “One Meralco Foundation’s School Electrification Program: Energizing the country’s off-grid public schools during the Covid-19 pandemic”, which was recognized as the Corporate Social Responsibility program of the year among nominations from Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Powering schools

Meralco’s social development arm One Meralco Foundation, in partnership with the Department of Education, has been implementing the school electrification program in public schools located in unserved and underserved areas in the country.

OMF president Jeffrey Tarayao received a silver Stevie under the Thought Leaders for Government or Non-profit Organizations category.

Tarayao, who has been leading OMF since 2011, has been instrumental in deeply developing a consciousness where “inclusion” and “inclusive development” became fundamental principles of the design, implementation and sustainability of community and sustainable development programs of OMF.
