Amid the continuing challenges brought by the Covid-19 pandemic, Asian conglomerate San Miguel Corporation (SMC) was named Top Employer of the Year at the 2021 Asia CEO Awards, besting other major conglomerates across several criteria, including outstanding leadership, improving employees’ professional careers, providing recognition, talent development, social commitment, and promoting work-life balance.

In a video address for the event, SMC president Ramon S. Ang emphasized the importance of instilling a deeper sense of purpose among employees, and the role of a strong values system, in helping SMC weather challenges and even thrive, amid the difficult business environment.

Ang said that throughout the pandemic, SMC remained resilient and was able to contribute substantially to Covid-19 response, as well as continue its major strategic projects, in large part because of these factors.

After the program, Ang further expressed gratitude for the award, saying he dedicated it to employees of SMC and its various subsidiaries, who have been working hard despite the continued threat of Covid-19.
