We’ve been shortlisted for the Social Responsibility Award of the Investors in People Awards 2019.
In particular, our advocacy for love of country – especially by supporting national 3×3 basketball teams – was recognized by the renowned people management consulting group Investors in People (IIP).
“Becoming a Finalist in the Social Responsibility category affirms the impact which our advocacy for love of country has among Filipinos,” said BAVI President and General Manager Ronald Mascariñas. “We are honored that our support for national athletes through our 3×3 tournaments is now recognized internationally.”
In 2017, BAVI started supporting national athletes with the dream of fielding a team in the Olympics. Today, through its Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 basketball conferences and by sending national teams to international conferences, the company is ever nearer to achieving that dream. From being ranked 60th by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) at the start of the year, our national 3×3 team is now ranked 28th.
BAVI currently holds a Gold Accreditation from IIP. According to Human Resources Management Vice President Nedo Sasing, this accreditation means the company upholds ideals and fosters practices that give “due importance to people as individuals who have inherent dignity and potential.”
The IIP Awards ceremony will be held on November 19 in London.
